Life sometimes gets the best of us. For some it’s the daily pressures, for others it’s the shadows of the past. For Patsy Milstrap, it’s both. When she travels to beautiful Cedar Key on Florida’s Gulf Coast in search of healing, she never dreams her past will be waiting for her there.


Waiting for Sunrise by Eva Marie Everson

After Reading Chasing Sunsets, the first book in this series, I was excited and waiting to read “Waiting for Sunrise.” The main character in this second book is Patsy Milstrap, whom we met in Chasing Sunsets. Patsy and her husband Gil are on the way to Cedar Key for a vacation, but what Gil is really doing is trying to get Patsy away in order to find help with dealing with her past. Even though Patsy is married to a wonderful man with

Again, Eva Marie Everson writes a wonderful story with characters that readers grow to love and believe as though they are real. She writes Patsy’s story in a way that seems so real, I was wanting to pray for Patsy daily as I read this book! I love the beach setting, and Cedar Key sounds just like the place anyone needs to go for healing. And Gil is adorable, and his love for Patsy is so very heartwarming, he was willing to do anything to get help for his wife. And Patsy knew he was trying so hard, it must have hurt her so to know he loved her and was trying to help her. One thought I had as I was reading was that wouldn’t it be wonderful if all husbands and wives had that unconditional love for each other, just as God has for us. Marriages would be able to survive if this were true. This book truly shows the true real love in a marriage that could have easily fallen apart. A love that grows through the difficult times, not one that is torn down. The author had be crying a lot during this book, but I had to smile and even laugh at times as well. Eva Marie Everson is truly a gifted and talented author that will always be a favorite on my reading list.

I highly recommend this wonderful book for anyone to read and enjoy, and especially someone going through difficult situations such as someone trying to deal with their difficult past. Patsy’s story is sure to give you hope as you follow her journey.
