Book Review: The Bright Side of Disaster

October 29, 2009 book review 7


This was the first novel that Katherine Center wrote, I read her second book, Everyone is Beautiful, a couple of months ago and knew I had to go back and read the first. She has a gift with words.

This book is written in first person, a very intimate and detailed style that I really enjoy. Jenny is a 20 something young woman, pregnant, engaged and thrown a bit off kilter by the order of the events in her life. I had the immediate impression that Jenny doesn’t feel worthy of the good things that she has in her life, or feel that she should have more.
The journey in this book is about love and motherhood, and being a daughter and a friend, and again love. Love in all these relationships.
It’s a short book, and so easy to read and enjoy. It gives you a warm and good feeling in the end. My rating is a 4 out of 5 stars, I really enjoyed it.
Katherine Center’s next book isn’t due out until April 2010, to say I’m looking forward to it is a gross understatement………I really can’t wait!!!

    Isn’t it great when you find an author you love and can read all their old books and then wait, with great anticipation, for their next one? It’s like Christmas and your Birthday all rolled into one.

    Hi………..Welcome back! I’ve missed you.

    This looks like a book I will have to put on my ‘to read’ list once things become less hectic around here.

    I think I have heard of this book before. I think I may see if our library has it and borrow it. Thanks for the review!
