This story slightly reminds me of the movie Sweet Home Alabama.
A Beautiful Fall by Chris Coppernoll is a slower paced book about a woman that needed a slower pace.
Things I enjoyed about this book:
- The physical looks of the characters were not emphasized.
- One of the characters is a young man that is living for the Lord.
- Prayer and Godly living are woven in well.
There are 2 sections that I really remembered days later.
The first one is said by Christina, a single Christian writer and speaker; but I’m guessing it’s what Chris Coppernoll thinks.
It’s just that it takes months to write something, even longer to edit, and only two days to read.
p. 94 A Beautiful Fall by Chris Coppernoll
The second think that struck a chord with me is when the very pregnant, SAHM Samantha calls her husband Jim.
He encouraged her and me at the same time.
“Why is it women always compare themselves to each other? Sam, we have a wonderful marriage, two nearly grown children, and a new baby on the way. Instead of asking whether you’ve done enough, why don’t you ask yourself if you’re happy and if you enjoy your life?”
p.125 A Beautiful Fall by Chris Coppernoll
Jim in the story goes on to tell his wife:
But the difference is I get to escape from my pressures at a place called home. It’s what you do for me and everyone in our family that makes that possible.
p. 126 A Beautiful Fall by Chris Coppernoll
I’m glad I read A Beautiful Fall for several reasons, but those two are the highest on my list.
