“Finding Me” is an Interesting Read with a Good Premise

finding me

Imagine you grew up in the wake of great loss.  Your mother and siblings died in a house fire when you were an infant and your father raised you after remarrying.  This is Kelli Huddleston’s story until her father dies and she discovers news clippings about the disappearance of a man and his infant daughter in a small boat.  Except the man in the picture is her father and the baby is Kelli.

Now, the premise of “My whole life has been a lie, who am I really?” isn’t a particularly new or fresh one but  Kathryn Cushman does a nice job of fleshing it out into an interesting and enjoyable story.  Since it is in the Christian Fiction genre, there is the inevitable conversion but it is well managed and fits into the story line.  This is a “stuff in your beach bag for a relaxing afternoon read” kind of book.   It’s not going to set the pond on fire but it’s good, solid, enjoyable fiction.

This book was provided to me by Bethany House for this review.  The opinions, however, are entirely my own!
