Made To Last

by Melissa Tag


Price: £8.99
Publisher:Bethany House imprint of Baker Pub from Lion
Published:October 2013

Melissa Tag's debut novel, a romantic story set in America, has an imaginative, if rather too complicated plot, which at the same time intrigues but also confuses.

For me there were too many characters and sub-plots. However, despite having to recap as to who was who, I had to read on to confirm my prediction of how the storyline would develop. I was in for many surprises.

Miranda Woodruff, the book's central character hosts a popular TV show on home building. Into this unusual scenario come producers, PAs, and reporters, all of whom impact on a star who is battling with her past and who feels an increasing pull back to her faith.

It is a story of a house building star who starts to rebuild her life.
