My review:

Hi. It's me again, Cindy. Coming to you with a book that I have no idea how to review. 

I have found that Katie Powner's books have emotional depth, the "wow" factor, and they tend to stick with you long after you read them. I loved Where the Blue Sky Begins

Eric is hard to like at the beginning, especially when he first gets to town. He grows on the town, and he endears himself to the reader. He struggles with faith and what happens after death. He has great character growth and the story wouldn't be the same without him.

Oh Eunice! She will make you laugh, and she will tug on your heartstrings. She is strong, stubborn, and determined. She also has character growth. (I don't want to give too many details or give anything away).

This small town has all the charm and cast of characters you would expect to find. Where the Blue Sky Begins is thought-provoking, and has a fine balance between humorous and serious, without tipping too far in either direction. I enjoyed the story and loved the ending.

Thank you to Bethany House for the opportunity to read Where the Blue Sky Begins. I was not required to provide a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 


Synopsis (Goodreads): 

After an accident brings businessman Eric Larson and eccentric Eunice Parker together, the unlikely pair spend more time with each other than they would like while facing challenges beyond what they imagined. As Eunice comes to accept her terminal illness, they both wrestle with an important question: What matters most when the end is near?


  1. I think I would like this one. I love a good emotional book .

  2. Isn't that the best kind of feeling sometimes? A book so powerful, you have no idea how to even talk about it. I hope everyone has that feeling at least once in their life!

  3. This does sound like a good one. And I love that the one character is named Eunice. That was my grandmother's name. :D

    1. Lark, I have a friend who lives in Singapore, her name is Eunice :) Eunice was a great character!!

  4. This sounds like a tearjerker. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I don't know if it's better to know that a character is going to die before you start a book or not. Sometimes the 'surprise' of it really packs a punch, but sometimes I want to know so I can decide if I'm in the mood for that emotional story. Great review.
