This Month's CFRB Tour is...
Not Far From the Tree by: Ruth Smith Meyer
This is the sequel to Not Easily Broken,

Back Cover:
Those who lived in the twentieth century saw more rapid changes than any previous century. Born at the beginning of this era, to a family that had already faced dramatic change and challenge, Rina seemed to come into the world with a zest for the revolution the 1900's would bring.
Based on the story of a real person, the narrative alternates between the daily activities of a still spunky 99-year-old Rina and her vivid memories as she relives vignettes of her life. The impetuous and sometimes capricious nature of young Rina almost exasperates the parents of Jake and Ellie.
When she is barely a grown woman, marriage to an imaginative and sometimes impractival dreamer husband, the arrival of babies, the great depression and life in general take over, molding her into a strong woman not unlike her parents, proving the apple indeed does not fall far from the tree. The unbelievable twists in the lives of Ria ad her beloved David will keep readers fascinated with the indomitable strength of the human spirit when there is a solid foundation of love and faith. Although this is a sequel to Not Easily Broken, it can readily stand on its own.

I'm so glad that I requested to review this book!!!! As the back cover says, you don't need to have read the first one, to read this one!!! I personally haven't read Not Easily Broken, but I can tell you, that i'm on the look out for it!!!! After reading about Rina, and what she did with her life, and what she did for others, has taught me a lot!!! This is one, book that I will be re-reading a lot in the coming future!!! I love how it's based on a real person,(we need this sometimes....) and how she goes through hardships, and she does worry, but she also relies on God!
Everything that could happen to a person, happens to Rina and her family, but she shows us how to get through it...
It is a quick read, and only 242 pages, but I wasn't able to put it down!!! I made myself, so I could really pay attention to what I was reading....Because if you know me, I can read fast....I'll get a book from the library or something and in less than a week, it'll be done...no matter how many pages there are!!!! So when I tell you that I made myself take the whole week to read this, you know that is a big thing for me to do!!! But even then, I would get reading, and not realize how much I had read until someone called me to go do something..:)
It's a great book, and I recommend it to everyone!!!!!
