Most girls dream of their wedding days. Except me. I’m too busy practicing piano to be the live soundtrack for everyone else’s weddings to think about my own. I’ve survived most of my twenties with harmonious chords and pleasant days. So why is it that now, at twenty-seven, a discordant feeling presents itself? Is there a solid solution to loneliness when there is absolutely no potential husband on the horizon?
I enjoyed reading this short story from Author, Amanda Tero. While the story is short, it has depth. The heroine, a young lady in her late-twenties, happy with the direction her life has taken thus far, is suddenly hit with the realization that her friends are all either married or about to get married. All while she still sits on the relationship sidelines. Her struggle is real and honest, one that I think many young women face at some point in their lives. Let’s face it, society still holds to the old values of pressuring women into getting married and having babies.
What I appreciated about this story, is that the heroine turns to God. She turns to her faith. She spends time reading the Bible and praying. She is honest with her feelings and her struggle. I believe that this story would help many young women. It would give them an honest point of reference, and provide a strong foundation in faith, without being overbearing.
I would recommend this book to any young woman who needs encouragement in her singleness. A helpful reminder that God has a plan for her life, and that she can be happy and content in the season of life she is currently in.

About the Author:
Amanda Tero is a homeschool graduate who desires to provide God-honoring, family-friendly reading material. She has enjoyed writing since before ten years old, but it has only been since 2013 that she began seriously pursuing writing again – starting with some short stories that she wrote for her sisters as a gift. Her mom encouraged her to try selling the stories she published, and since then, she has begun actively writing short stories, novellas, and novels.
If something she has written draws an individual into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ, it is worth it!
