Better All the Time by Carre Armstrong Gardner

Seraphina Darling has always struggled to stand out. With her weight issues at the forefront of her mind, Sephy prefers to place herself comfortably in the background. But when Sephy's best friend and older brother announce their engagement, she vows to make a permanent change in her appearance and her life.

Meanwhile her younger sister, Amy, lands her dream job: coordinating the restoration of the community theater's arts programs. As the deadline for the project's completion approaches, Amy continues to run herself ragged, struggling to delegate and trust anyone but herself.

As the Darling sisters move through tragedy and triumph, between shadows and the limelight, each must find a path into the freedom of who God intended her to be.

As a definite fan of family sagas, I could not be happier with Better All the Time, which follows All Right Here in Carre Armstrong Gardner’s Darling Family series. After getting to know and love the Darling family in the first novel, I really enjoyed getting to catch up with them in this second novel. With new situations, new emotions, focusing more on Seraphina and Amy this time, Gardner provides another excellently well-written and realistic story of God and family. I simply could not put it down, eagerly turning pages to see how everything would play out for the Darling family. Overall, Better All the Time is an inspiring and entertaining read, and I would recommend it to readers of contemporary fiction, especially those who enjoyed All Right Here.

Thanks to Tyndale BlogNetwork, I received a copy of Better All the Time and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
