Review - The House on Malcolm Street

Book - The House on Malcolm Street by Leisha Kelly

Publisher - Revell

Paperback, 345 pages.

From the Publisher:

"It is the autumn of 1920, and Leah Breckenridge is desperate to find a way to provide for her young daughter. After losing her husband and infant son, she is angry at God and fearful about the days ahead. Finding refuge in a boardinghouse run by her late husband's aunt, Leah begins the slow process of mending her heart."

My Thoughts:

This is such a lovely book! There are so many good ideas about dealing with poverty and helping others. These lessons easily come through the story and entertain and encourage the reader. Leah works with her godly Aunt in a boardinghouse and works on finding her way back to the Lord.  I was captivated and delighted with this story! At times some of the characters startled me by their reaction to trials, but it helped me see the depths of human nature and be more patient and understanding.

Overall, it is a wholesome book which will provide you with profitable hours of reading. I have read other books by Leisha Kelly and trust her as an author. Her writing is beautifully done and a great blessing to those who read her work.

*Disclosure - I received this book from Revell for review purposes.*
