Rise and Shine: A Contemporary Fairy Tale by Sandra B. Bricker
This story is the modern tale of Sleeping Beauty.
After being in a coma for 10 years, Shannon wakes up to discover she’s 30 years old and that her husband recently died. As Shannon tries to get use to the “real world” again, she can’t help feel dependent on her doctor, Daniel, who has taken a personal interest in her medical case. Shannon tries to rebuild her friendships and learn about love and the world around her.
Good steady pace-lots of laughs and “feel good” christian romance story! I have read several books by this author and really enjoy her writing style and stories.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for an honest review on my blog and social media-all opinions are my own.
About the book
Shannon Malone wakes from a coma ten years after a diving accident to find that nothing in her previous life is the same. Waking up to the news that she’s thirty years old would have been daunting enough . . . but she also learns that her young groom, Edmund Ridgeway, recently lost his battle with cancer.
Shannon’s elderly aunts flit through her life, trying to save her from Millicent, Edmund’s evil sister, as she tries to bar Shannon from any claim on the Ridgeway fortune. Shannon’s gorgeous doctor, Daniel Petros, becomes Shannon’s tour guide into a whole new world of madness, where reality television has taken over the planet and everyone’s life appears to revolve around a tiny screen on their cellphones!
Can Shannon navigate to a happy ending, even when her heart keeps asking, “Why, God?”
