"The Place of Belonging is really well written and I love it!" said this blogger.

Review done by Abby

I have been very lucky to have the chance to review quite a few books this summer.  I have another great, quick read that is perfect for anyone looking for a book to add to their summer reading list!

About the Author: Jayne Pearson Faulkner is a graduate of Central Bible College.  She is a former editor and writer for Gospel Publishing House.  She also served as a missionary for many years to the Philippines and the South Pacific.  She now lives in Oregon with her family.

About the Book: The Place of Belonging is the story of a child of a single mother in 1940′s Big Sky Montana.  She lives with her mother and grandmother.  After her mother, who works at a beauty parlor meets and man and gets married there are a lot of changes in Jayne’s life.  The Place of Belonging is written from Jayne’s point of view as a child as she looks for her very own place of belonging.

My Review: I really enjoyed this book.  At only 190 pages it is a very quick read than can easily be finished within a couple of days and since it is so engaging it is the kind of book that you don’t want to put down.

The Place of Belonging is really well written and I love that it is written from the view point of a young child.  Jayne is a sweet child who truly wants her very own place to belong.  Since she did not start life with a dad and her family is changing, belonging is at times hard for Jayne and it is what she most desires.  It is fun to think about how a child perceives the changes in her life and in the lives of those around her.

While her family is constantly changing and growing, it is nice to feel the love in Jayne’s family.  There is a lot of love between Jayne and her mother, grandmother, siblings and her new dad though everyone shows it in their own unique way.

The Place of Belonging is a story that I feel that anyone could relate to enjoy.  We all want a place to fit in and belong and to be loved.

This book is a keeper!  It is sweet and made me happy.  Adults will love it and I think teenagers would enjoy it and relate to it as well.  I will be passing this book on to some friends to read!

Buy It: The Place of Belonging is available through Amazon now for $11.44!
