Amy Inspired By: Bethany Pierce

Rejection after rejection has Amy Gallagher feeling stuck. With a master's degree under her belt, Amy thought she would've been a published writer by now. Teaching freshman English at the university wasn't on her list of things to do before age thirty. With her birthday fast approaching Amy fears the worst: she has settled. Plans to do so much more with her life conflict with the steady rhythm she has fallen into. But when a man named Eli is thrust into Amy's life her entire world changes but will she have the courage to accept it?
Once I start a book my goal is to inevitably finish it. Whether or not I like it doesn't matter. In forcing myself to read an entire book cover to cover I am enabled to give an honest review instead of tossing it aside and limiting my ability to review it. I get the complete story.
With Amy Inspired, I definitely felt like giving up. I feel satisfied with my completion though, experiencing my own little triumph. However, I did not enjoy this book at all. The chapters were too long. The entire book cut into three parts gave off a sporadic vibe. Amy Gallagher, just a nagging woman who feels sorry for herself. Tell me something I don't know! I want to be Wowed and this book did not do it for me. And I got to say, I would not recommend it to a friend. However, the one thing I did like was the description of Eli's sculpture. I could see it so vivid in my mind.

I was given a free copy of this book by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
