Happy Release Day!

Corinne by Rebecca Morrow
Contemporary Women Fiction, 432 pages
Published July 12, 2022 by St. Martin's Press

You want to walk away from the things that were bad for you and never look back.

That's what Corinne Callahan wants.

Cast out of the fundamentalist church she was raised in and cut off from her family, Corinne builds a new life for herself. A good one. But she never stops missing the life—and the love— she's left behind.

It's Enoch Miller who ruins everything for her. It was always Enoch Miller. She'll never get him out from under her skin.

Set over fifteen years and told with astonishing intimacy, Rebecca Morrow's Corinne is the story of a woman who risks everything she's built for the one man she can never have.  


My thoughts about Corrine ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"All the good Bible names must have been taken when Enoch Miller was born."

I started this book not knowing much about it. I didn't realize it was based on a woman, a girl really, being cast out of a fundamentalist church. So there is a lot of 'churchy' things in the book. Don't get me wrong, I learned a lot about fundamentalist churches and how they operate from this story, but I just think this wasn't that great of a fit for me. I think differently and it was hard watching Corrine and Enoch bend to the ways of the church, at the cost of their happiness.

Like I said, I learned a lot from this book. I think the characters were interesting  people and this kind of conflict is real and happening to a lot of people in the church. I'm sure this will be a very enjoyable read for the right audience... it is a powerful story. I wish the author all the best. 

I received an ARC of Corrine via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.
