I picked up “Love, Charleston” by Beth Webb Hart at book store closing event almost two years ago. I finally was able to get a chance to read this book a few weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. It started out kinda slow in the first chapter but after the first chapter, I was hooked. After reading the book, I understood why the first chapter was a bit slower than the rest of the book. The first chapter explained the history of Pastor and Widower Roy Summerall. It explained why he was afraid to take a new job and move back to Charleston. Roy is stuck raising his daughter after his wife passed away shortly after she was born. After deciding to accept the job in Charleston, he was very nervous how he was going to preach to his new congregation and capture their attention. The congregation in his new church was far different than the one he was preaching at before his big move.

Della is another character in the book and she was unhappy with her living conditions. She wanted more and was being pulled away from her marriage in search of someone with money. In fact, one of her old flames showed back up and she thinks that he would offer her a much better life for her and her children. She lies to her husband about a book conference and plans to sneak away and meet up with her old flame. They met at a hotel and once she arrived there she decided that she couldn’t leave her present life, despite how unhappy she was. She drove an old car, lived in a run down house filled with bugs, and was upset that he husband was working in a job that wasn’t providing for them the way she felt that he should.
