I finished reading The Familiar Stranger yesterday. When I started the novel, I didn’t think it was my kind of book—faithful Christian wife, lousy dirtbag husband, yada, yada, yada. But Christina kept pulling me in with each chapter. Letting me in on some new information until I couldn’t stop reading. I had to know what was going on. When I finished it I was sorry to see it end. The characters became so real to me. I was particularly happy with the ending. Talk about drama! A wonderful book. I can see why it won a first book award. This author is right up there with Angela Hunt, Deb Raney, and the rest.
