Although this novel fits snugly into the Christian Fiction genre you will be sorely disappointed if you expect an "I-love-Jesus-so-ain't-life-grand-and-sunny" message. The plot is humanistic, coarse, and relevant. You won't be satisfied until you turn the last page and you, probably like me will come to the realization that the we need more Christian authors like this. I predict Ms. Fotopolus will be the "Jodi Piccoult" of this genre, the only difference being that underlying (but not too preachy) message about faith.
Deborah, The Dowager Duchess of Devonshire is the
youngest of the much-celebrated and often times scandalous Mitford sisters of Britain.
This book is basically a compilation of her earlier speeches as well as scribblings from her diary. Most often very funny (I adore British humor) and sometimes heartbreaking as she opens up her journal to her feelings in the days leading up to the funeral of John F. Kennedy. (The duchess' brother-in-law was married to Kathleen "Kick" Kennedy and was closed to the Kennedy brood when Joseph, Sr. was an ambassador in England).
