My book shelves are overflowing with books lately. And I love it!
Recently, I finished Screen Play by Chris Coppernoll. It again is a Christian Fiction book and I have to tell you, I’m enjoying this genre more than I ever thought I could.
At thirty, Harper fears her chances for a thriving acting career and finding true love are both fading fast. After a devastating year of unemployment and isolation in Chicago, Harper is offered an unexpected role in a Broadway play – as understudy to New York’s biggest diva – and everthing in Harper’s world changes.
Harper also hopes to find love in NYC, but when it doesn’t happen, she reluctantly signs up to an online matchmaking site. Frustration mounts when the only match Harper is even remotely interested in lives in a remote territory on the opposite coast, thousands of miles away. A faith conversation during her year in Chicago shapes how Harper sees everything. She wants to see God at work in her life, but His ways are mysterious, and she’s faced with challenges in a secular world of Broadway. Harper feels like an actress who doesn’t act and a woman in love with someone she’s never even seen, but God’s about to change all that.
There is more but I wanted to get a word in here too. 🙂
The thing that struck me the most was that this book is written from Harper’s point of view. Why was this impressive, well because Chris Coppernoll is a man. I know it’s very sexist of me but hear me out. I have not read many books written by a male that the main character is a woman. And he did it very well!
Probably my favorite aspect of this book is how Harper has the courage to keep her faith and act on it even though everyone and thing around her is telling her to do otherwise. It is truly a wonderful example of giving it up to God and just following him and he will take of you, or those you love.
Faith, friends, and love. What more could you ask for in a book?
