It pains me to say it, but they just released this book cover art and it is, hands down, THE WORST Karen Witemeyer cover I have ever seen! In fact, it is one of the worst Bethany House covers I have ever seen. What's happening??? BHP used to be celebrated for their stunning, original, beautiful covers. Lately, they all look like cheap, homemade self-published covers from the early 1990s. Why have their designs become so amateurish? VERY disappointing... especially for an author as wonderful as K ...more
Knowing how much I enjoy Karen Witemeyer's books, I requested a copy on NetGalley as soon as More Than Meets The Eye was available. This latest novel did not disappoint!
This captivating story starts off with a very emotional prologue. It was a fabulous introduction for rest of the book!
Moving forward into the chapters. we are re-introduced to the Hamilton siblings as adults. A rag-tag family built on solid devotion and trust, the trio have been on their own for many years with Zacharias, the eld ...more
A new Karen Witemeyer book....
04/10/2018- I just saw the cover today and I am sorely disappointed. This is such a far departure from previous Witemeyer novels and just sub-par for Bethany House in general. Mrs. Witemeyer's novels deserve better covers than this.
6/14/2018 UPDATE: 3.5 stars.
More Than Meets The Eye is a delightful historical Christian romance, with a touch of mystery, plenty of suspense, and a warm heart that celebrates family and belonging. From the gorgeous cover to the heartwarming story where family is the people you choose, More Than Meets The Eye was wonderful from start to finish.
Evangeline Hamilton knows the cost of heartbreak. Yet she chooses to remain optimistic, celebrating the family God gave her and the simply joys in life. When a stranger purc ...more
Karen Witemeyer’s first book in the Patchwork Family series is a winner. The author grabs your attention with a tear-jerking prologue and hangs on to it all the way to the HEA epilogue. The spiritual lesson contained in this novel is presented in a way that is thought-provoking, but not preachy. It flows as a natural part of the story.
Evangeline has every reason to be bitter about the life card she has been dealt, but her temperament is just the opposite. She is loving, sweet, and grateful for a ...more
