While dreaming about her ideal ceremony, Faith goes to her mother's church -- and ends up joining the choir!

While it seems a typical rom-com type read, I found it difficult to get into at first. It doesn't grab you with action but it is cutesy and fun. Certainly a good holiday or vacation read :) ( )

Faith has had an interesting life, to say the least, and while I expected the book to be humorous, judging from the cover, it turned out to be much more serious than I expected. I admire Faith's positive attitude and how she handles her various situations. I appreciated the strength of the friendships that Faith has and the ones that she makes and how her friends support her through everything. There are some sad sections of the book, and I did struggle to understand a few things. Oddly enough, I have a hard time with the camping experience. Being an experienced camper, I saw several flaws, one a dangerous one - you cannot cook inside a tent. That can be lethal, and it did disturb me that it was in the book. I realize that's a petty observation considering the levity of so many of the situations, but it did stick in my mind. ( )

I found "The Name I Call Myself" hard to read through to the end. Too much emotional baggage with her obsessive need to control her brother's mental state. I read the ending when I was over half way through. Then I read the middle to the end to see what happened with the Choir! The Choir is an awesome part of the book. The drama with her brother's health is treated equally but it's boring, in that it's been written about and delved into in our society a lot. But. that is true with singing, also. Kind of makes it a trite and unimaginative book. I don't recommend this book.

This review is based on a paperback copy I received from LibraryThing and Lion Hudson/Kregel Publications. It is an honest and voluntary review and the complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.

Charming, heartbreaking and yet utterly lovely! This was an endearing novel with elements of friendship, humor, darkness, danger, heartbreak, love and healing. The author was able to tie many subplots together in such a smooth way that it made for a realistic story that had me all misty-eyed by the end.

Faith Harp’s character, hmmmm, ok I liked her character and understood the choices she made and why but at the same time I felt like saying “really??” She very clearly understood where she stood emotionally with Perry from the beginning but she kept trying? Yeah, not the biggest fan of that weakness. Then the other part of me was like she is doing everything for her brother Sam and then the other part…you can see where this is going. Faith’s character is pulled in many different directions within herself that she cannot see the path that she should choose for her happiness. She is so wrapped up in duty that it is really unhealthy. Which is also the beauty of this story. We are able to follow the story of Faith’s journey to finding herself.

I loved, loved, loved the Grace Choir ladies. A choir that was brought together in a run-down part of town made up of women who were broken and unaware that they needed mending. Hester the choir conductor is really fantastic! Her character would just not allow the women to do anything but move forward. Now that was a perfect storyline to keep me entertained. Every character in this choir were written perfectly and what they added to the story was entertainment and a feeling of togetherness. Loved it!

In what world is a pastor written as a swoon worthy hunk? Ha ha ha, the world that the Author of this novel created. I just adored Dylan’s character. Such a sweet character and how he was there for Faith and tried so hard to deny his attraction to her and just be her friend. Amazing!

I found parts of this book regarding the on-goings with Faith to be confusing at times. I wondered at one point what the time period was of the storyline because it felt very old-fashioned to be in a modern setting? I also felt that although there was meant to be a love triangle it never amounted to much because her feeling towards one party was pretty clear from the beginning of the story. I did find the story to be a really sweet story with some edginess thrown in. I highly recommend for fans of Women’s fiction.

*Thank you to LibraryThing and Lion Hudson/Kregel Publications for this complimentary copy of The Name I Call Myself* ( )

I don't read too much "Chick Lit," but thought this would be okay because it involved a church choir. It was cute, but also very emotional. It was light on spirituality, but perhaps true to some types of churches. I don't like books to be preachy, but it's good to see characters live out their lives for God. If I were writing this story, I probably would have had Faith turn her life over to the Lord, and hopefully Dylan would not seriously date her until she did. ( )
