Publisher: Iron Stream Fiction

Two sets of sisters, generations apart--can one big sister's sacrifice teach the other about love and forgiveness?

1963: Twenty-year-old Annie dreams of managing the dance studio where she has trained since childhood and of marrying her high-society boyfriend. But when her younger sister with special needs gets pregnant, Annie is forced to set her dreams aside for the sake of family. 

Present Day: Missy Robbins has always lived in her younger sister's shadow. When given the opportunity, Missy steps out of her comfort zone as stay-at-home mom of four to prove she's as good a singer as Erica. Missy's new pursuit puts her on a path to self-discovery and reclaiming her discarded faith. Until she discovers her grandmother has a sixty-year-old secret. 

Will Missy conceal Grandma Annie's deception or will she be forced to reveal the hidden truth? 

I really enjoy Christian Fiction books and I truly enjoy Spilt Time genre. Songs for a Sunday by Heather Norman Smith is both of these in one book! I was very excited to read this book recently. 

The year is 1963 and Annie finds out that she will need to take care of her Special Needs sister who is pregnant. She sets her Dreams aside and puts family first. Annie is only 20 and has a few dreams including marrying her "high society" boyfriend, but her sister needs her now.  We are now in the present day and Missy Robbins decides she does have something to prove to everyone. Missy has been a Stay at Home Mom for many years and decides to show those around her she can also sing just as well as her Sister, Erica. She suddenly discovers she does have an identity outside of being a Stay at Home Mom and she is coming back to her faith. Life takes a turn when she discovers her Grandma Annie has a family secret she has been hiding for 60yrs. Will Annie ever have the chance to achieve her Life Dreams? Will Missy reveal Grandma Annie's secret? 

WOW, I really enjoyed this book from the very first chapter. I was so intrigued by the storyline that I kept reading and finished the book in about 3hrs. Annie was a very unselfish person, putting others before herself. Missy, who is Annie's granddaughter, has that same type of personality and takes care of her family before herself. I really enjoyed seeing Missy coming out of her zone and doing more for herself. The discovery by Missy about Grandma Annie was a GREAT part of the story. The book is one of Faith and Family. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Fiction and also Dual Time Spilt. FANTASTIC BOOK!
