Blog Tour for Sincerely, Mayla by Virgina Smith & Open Giveaway

Publisher's Synopsis:~

Will Mayla Strong’s life ever resemble normal? Just as she settles into a great place with God, everything else falls apart. In the course of a single week she loses her job, wrecks any chance at a relationship with Pastor Paul, gets the cold shoulder from her friend Stuart, and learns that Lindsey—the teenage sister of her late friend Alex—needs a place to stay. What good is being a control freak if nobody will do what you tell them?

Taking advantage of her newfound “vacation time,” Mayla flees to her grandmother’s house in Florida. But one by one, her problems follow . . . literally. In this touching sequel to Just As I Am, quirky Mayla Strong comes face-to-face with the responsibilities and joys of friends and family. As she tries to help her loved ones, Mayla begins to realize that God has all the answers—the trick is letting go long enough for Him prove it.

My take:~

Virginia Smith has a winner on her hands with her latest release Sincerely, Mayla. Dealing sensitively with intense subject matter including homosexuality and abortion, Virginia still manages to create a comfortable and joyful feel to her story. Mayla is an engaging character who invokes understanding and compassion as she faces her personal frustrations while supporting and caring for her eclectic family and friends. Mayla's faith journey is not without difficulty or disappointment but it is also filled with revelation and hope. Not having read Just As I Am did not put me at a disadvantage but I was so taken with Mayla, I will be sure to see how her story began. Sincerely, Mayla will make a great summer read!
