The Undoing of Saint Silvanus
The Undoing of Saint Silvanus | Beth Moore
9 posts | 10 read | 7 to read
Exciting fiction premiere from beloved "New York Times" bestselling author Beth Moore.Only God knew why Jillian Slater agreed to return to New Orleans on the news that her father had finally drunk himself to death. It's not like they were close. She hadn't seen him--or her grandmother, the ice queen--in almost 20 years. But when Adella Atwater, the manager of her grandmother's apartment house, called and said Jillian's expenses would be paid if she'd fly in for the burial, a free trip to New Orleans was too intriguing to resist.What Adella didn't tell her was that the apartment house wasn't a house at all and, whatever it was, bore the dead weight of a long and painful history. As soon as Jillian meets the odd assortment of renters and realizes that her grandmother had no idea she was coming, she hatches a plan to escape. But the investigation into her father's death quickly unfolds and Jillian is drawn into the lives of the colorful collection of saints and sinners who pass through Saint Silvanus. She soon discovers there is more at stake than she ever imagined. Who is behind the baffling messages and the strange relics left on the steps? Is it possible that her family is actually cursed? Or is it just this crazy old house that holds them all under its spell?Jillian walks into a web of spiritual and personal danger borne out of her family's broken history, and despite Adella's wiliest efforts, only God himself can orchestrate the undoing of all that is going on at Saint Silvanus.

I found this book to be a bit all over the place. I liked it ok enough but I had a hard time really enjoying it.

Day 28: MyTown
I‘m narrowing this to specifically my community. Some other mom at our homeschool co-op left this for today, and it brought tears to my eyes. I love teaching English. I love the classes for my kids. But what I kept coming back for is this wonderful community of women who love and support each other.
This isn‘t a book I‘d typically pick up for myself, but I will read it with gratitude.

The only reason I read this is because it was a book club pick. It felt like reading an assignment and now I'm wondering if I want to continue in my book club! Lol.
It did have its moments and a few good quotes interspersed, and I do love my book club ladies. It wasn't a 'horrible' book, but I sure am glad it's over. I think I just need to feel more free in choosing not to read a book I'm not excited about reading. Life's too short!

This one seems a bit different than my usual read. So here‘s hoping it‘s amazing 😉

TheDrunkenLibrarian The beginning was slow but the middle was fantastic!! Then the last 100 pages were the longest to get through. But overall it wasn‘t a bad read I just probably wouldn‘t recommend it. 1y

Loved this story. It's so full of wisdom & all that comes when the story takes place in N'awlins.

Christian fiction, but edgier than I expected from this author. A bit disjointed, but a very satisfying read for the mystery/suspense reader in me.
