Book Review - We Are Called to Rise

I get a lot of book recommendations from my friend Ginny.  She's one of those people that I've just known forever, and she has really excellent taste in books. Plus she reads a lot, so she's a pretty great filter for my list!  Even if something is already on my to-read list, a positive review from her will push it to the top.  That's how I ended up reading We Are Called to Rise, because the first line of her review demanded that I read it ASAP!

The chapters move between 4 different main characters (I think just 4, right?) and their stories start to intertwine.  It's a sad story, but there are moments of hope and goodness, and even some humor.

It was a quick read for me, but mostly because I was so invested in the characters and I had to know what was going to happen.  I do wish there was more closure at the end, because I just needed to know how everything turned out long-term.  But with books that leave the ending somewhat open, I like to just assume the best possible outcome.


  1. A little sad and lack of closure? I don't know if I could handle that.
