Stardust by Carla Stewart- Blessings Come In All Forms

Secrets are sometimes hidden waiting to be surfaced as acceptance can lie close to the horizon.

Mayhaw Texas in 1952 is home to Georgia Peyton's family. Her husband O'Dell passes away suddenly leaving alot of unanswered questions about his current affairs. When a document is found by Georgia nestled amongst O'Dell's belongings another name is listed in the space where hers should be occupied. The choices she has for her and her daughters grow more narrow with little income coming in for support. 

The Stardust, a haven of sought after cottages beckons it's guest among the Bayou.

When destiny presents itself in the form of a down on his luck drifter landing on the front steps of The Stardust with a guitar and a smile, decisions concerning Georgia's present and future must be made. For her sake and those of her family will the acceptance of the past fill her or will bitterness hold her heart firmly?

I loved this southern novel complete with landscape, dialogue drawl and way of life. A very well written novel that stars comfortable and realistic characters who seem like old friends. The storyline held my interest and I found it hard to put down and at the end, most unforgettable. The author has a way of telling a story that the reader can relate to, maybe seeing themselves or others they know contained within the pages. I found the overall message to be inspiring and I was challenged in my faith. I will recommend this book to others. Thank you to FaithWords and Netgalley for the ARC for my review.
