Sweet Sanctuary by Sheila Walsh & Cindy Martinusen Coloma

Sweet Sanctuary is new from Thomas Nelson and is written by Sheila Walsh and Cindy Martinusen Coloma.

~From the back cover:

In tiny Cottage Cove, on the coast of Maine, Wren Evans is raising her gifted son, Charlie. A single mom, she's fought hard to give Charlie a stable, secure home life. When a prestigious music academy in Boston expresses interest in Charlie's talent, Wren is willing to move them again to make his dreams come true.

But Wren doesn't know that Charlie has been praying for her. And the answer to her son's prayers will change both of their lives. As Wren plans their move to Boston, life in Maine begins to fall apart. Her job is threatened with budget cuts, and Wren's grandmother, Ruth, arrives unnanounced, with an outlandish request.

Ruth wants the family gathered together one last time, at the summer home, where, years before, an accident shattered Wren's peaceful childhood. In the tumult, Wren finds a friend in handsome, kind-hearted local, Paul Callahan.

When the family gathers in Cottage Cove, old wounds will be healed, new love will blossom, and the innocent prayers of a child will be answered in a most unexpected way. ~

I've tried for over a month to get into this book. I can't do it. The story is almost too sappy and I can't connect with the characters. If I can put a book down and not think about it at all then it's one that I don't wish to continue reading.

This book was provided for review by the Booksneeze program.
