What a beautiful novella! Adrift was packed full of heart-tugging emotion and the possibility of a beautiful new love.
The author did a really good job of making me care about these characters. I could feel Erin’s sense of just going through the motions of life. There were times she felt numb and times that her heart hurt from the pain of losing her husband. It had been a while since she had really felt happiness. This novella was the story of Erin waking up again, letting go, trusting God, and taking a chance on love.
The story is told from Erin’s point of view and I believe that this perspective makes the emotions feel very real. I enjoyed this story so much.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Truth be told, I’ve been overwhelmed for years. Adrift in a sea of stress and grief and clinging to the life raft of responsibility.
It’s time I start swimming again. And someday? Maybe surf the waves instead of being pulled under and dragged out to sea.
God offers so much more for Erin than a life of treading water, focusing all her time and attention on running a small business while raising her kids after the death of her husband.
Through strangely poignant dreams and a series of run-ins with an unexpectedly attractive guy from church, Erin finds the hope she’ll not only feel alive again, but maybe even ride life’s waves victoriously.
Adrift is the first of several novellas tied to the fictional Grace Springs Fellowship in the full-length Everyday Love series. These journal-style novellas are roughly 18-20K words, filled with vivid imagery and reflect the ways in which God at work in the main character’s life.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Jaycee Weaver lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with her amazing husband, three daughters, a crazy shih-tzu, and a dwarf rabbit. When she’s not writing, she’s probably in hot pursuit of her 90 million other hobbies or shuttling the kids around. Jaycee loves to read books in multiple genres, drink too much coffee (honestly, when are they going to make the coffee IV a real thing?!), sing, take landscape and floral photos, sew, cook, bake, and craft just about anything (can we say Pinterest?). She considers herself a recovering perfectionist and sometimes hot mess. She does her best to live her faith in action, being open, honest, and real and letting God be Lord over the good, the bad, and the ugly even when it’s hard.
