The Name I Call Myself

Beth Moran

with her past and with her real name?

"Perry wants to think that his mother giving me her wedding
dress is a touching gesture.
He hasn't seen "
The Dress." 

The good news for Faith is that she has met Perry. He's rich, gorgeous, and has vowed to leave his playboy ways behind forever and marry her.
The bad news is that Perry's mother is planning Faith's nightmare wedding, include the dress from hell.
While dreaming about her ideal ceremony, Faith goes to her mother's church - and ends up joining the choir! Here she meets a man who makes her feel safe, perhaps even safe enough to s hare the dark secrets that are catching up with her.

Beth Moran lives in Nottingham with her husband, and three children. When she's not writing, Beth helps to lead a national women's network, Free Range Chicks. 

Refreshing for a change. This story is not iced over, it's written with hard cold issues.  I thought oh no, I don't want to hear about any more hard cold issues. But, the author takes a different approach.   These issues made me smile and get that  feeling of relief.   The main character, Faith is someone you can relate to.   You can lose yourself in Faith's life and the problems that she has.   I don't usually like a lot of characters because I get lost as to who is who and what they're doing.   But the author doesn't do that to the reader in this book.   True, there are a lot of characters. but  it's like a puzzle. Every character fits into the story in their own way.  They aren't just thrown in to add words to the book, unnecessarily.  I  think the nightmare wedding, the dress from hell and the over bearing mother in law, made me think back.  I'm sure many readers will do the same.   The book is well written, flows steadily and can make you smile even with some harsh issues being brought forth.  Light along with serious.  It is a Christian novel about surviving the hard times that life shoves at you.
The main setting of the book is about a man, very dangerous, who is about to be released from jail. This man is known to Faith and Sam and they are afraid he is back to cause more harm and pain. Faith is very faithful in her religion.  She somehow surrounds herself with people who have some serious problems. I don't want to give any more away but if you like chick lit with faith as the main topic than give this book a try.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Beth Moran and Kregel publications in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.   

I would give this book  5 STARS.
