An Awesome Read by Leanna Ellis


Lookin' Back Texas
By
Leanna Ellis

Women's fiction with a touch of humor....and a lot of depth.

No, not the type of depth that you have force yourself to read, I'm talking things that, while touching, funny, and faced paced reading, still make you think. This was one of the best books I've read this year. Here's the write up from Leanna.

Betty Lynne Davidson is planning her husband’s funeral while overlooking one thing: he’s not dead.

When Suzanne Mullins, forty-two, gets the call from her father to come back home to Texas because her mother has gone off the deep end, she knows it will mean having to look at the faulty foundations of their marriage as well as her own. Betty Lynne has always upheld a perfect facade of home and family, and Suzanne has followed suit. But her life with husband Mike and son Oliver is cracking under the pressure of its own unspoken history.

Looking her past in the eye once and for all, Suzanne hopes that trusting in God’s love and mercy will set all of this craziness straight—even if it does mean having to watch her father give the eulogy at his own funeral.
