Review: The Name I Call Myself by:Beth Moran
About the Book:
All Faith Harp wants is a quiet life--to take care of her troubled brother, Sam, earn enough money to stop the poverty wolves snapping at her heels, and to keep her past buried as deep as possible. And after years of upheaval, she might have just about managed it: Sam's latest treatment seems to actually be working, Faith is holding down a job, and she's engaged to the gorgeous and successful Perry. But, for Faith, things never seem to stay simple for long. Her domineering mother-in-law-to-be is planning a nightmare wedding, including the wedding dress from hell. And the man who killed her mother is released from prison, sending her brother tumbling back into mental illness.
When secretly planning the wedding she really wants, Faith stumbles across a church choir that challenges far more than her ability to hold a tune. She ends up joining the choir, led by the fierce choir-mistress Hester, who is determined to do whatever it takes to turn the group of ragtag women into something spectacular. She also meets Dylan, the church's vicar, who is different than any man she has ever met before . . .
The Name I Call Myself, is anything but quirky. It is such a great melodramatic play on dating and long term relationships. I loved it because it played out just like a story on the big screen. This story of a precious young lady by the name of Faith reminds me so much of my daughter or even myself. She is the girl next door that wants the same thing out of life that every young girl wants. She wants a husband, a house, and a white picket fence with all the trimmings but it seems like life has handed her a bad apple.
A bad apple that begins with a terrible mother in law that is out destroy her dream day. But as soon as she starts engineering the wedding and searching things out for herself she meets a man that can change her life forever. What is a young girl to do when it seems that her entire life is now in disarray?
