The Gift that Keeps Giving!

Thank you to Simon and Schuster for a copy of Under a Maui Moon by Robin Jones Gunn.  I was given this copy in exchange for an honest review. 

Who likes vacations?  I know I do.  I would also say cancer sufferers love vacations even morel.  What would be your favorite destination?  I know that I have been wanting to travel out west again. This time I plan to visit Maui.  So I invite you to come with us to Maui!


Carissa is an office manager for a busy medical practice in Portland Oregon.  One morning she walks into work to find that a meeting has occurred.  What did the doctors meet about?  It does not take long for her to find out.  Dr. Walters comes to see her and lets her know that she is let go from her job.  He hands her a key and says that he will fill her in on what the key is for tomorrow after she finishes packing up her office.  Once home she is also having conflict with her husband Richard.  His psychiatry practice is what upsets Carissa.   He tells her to discuss it with her boss again tomorrow because they need her pay check.  Then there is the other problem of his clients showing up after hours, at their house.  The next day Dr. Walters explains that the key is for cottage on the island of Maui.  The purpose is to give Carissa time to clear her head and decide what is next.  What will her trip have enstore for her?  Will she be able to heal the rift between herself and her husband?

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed Under a Maui Moon by Robin Jones Gunn.  It is set in a great location!  I loved how the author really took us the readers on a journey into Carissa’s life.  The readers will turn pages to find out how the story will resolve.   I also loved how she integrated the bible into the story.    I think the author hit on a key issue with many Christ followers.    Are we willing to seek and trust God in our life?  Can we forgive those who have wronged us or let God be the tunnel?
