Love Comes Calling

Love Comes Calling
Siri Mitchell
Ellis is failing her classes at Radcliffe. Her childhood best friend Griffin is in love with her and there are rumors that he wants to pin her. But Ellis knows that with his future career in politics he can go far. And she would only drag him down. She is a disappointment to everyone. Everything she sets out to do turns into a failure. But the chance to rescue a look-alike friend turns into a bigger adventure than she imagined.

The author wrote the story in Ellis' voice. Ellis has ADHD and her thoughts are disjointed and scattered. I'm not sure if it's my personality or what, but this book drove me crazy. It was all I could do to finish it. The author brought out some very thought provoking topics and handled them really well. I loved the Griffin character. The plot was great and the history was fascinating. But all of this was so overshadowed by the scattered thoughts and actions of the main character that I just couldn't concentrate on the book itself. I've read The Messenger by Mitchell and loved it. So I'm guessing this isn't her typical writing style. So while I won't be keeping or re-reading this book, I'll still check out her other books.

I received this book free of charge from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
