Reviews - What do customers think about Out of Her Hands (Linda Revere Series #2)?

Empty Nest and Chaos  Feb 20, 2009
Out of her Hands
By: Megan DiMaria

In the sequel to her first book, Searching for Spice, Megan has written a book that will touch the heart of any mother. Whether you are a new mom filled with dreams of your child's future, a middle mom struggling through the turbulent teen years, or an empty-nester, there is something for you in this book. With skill, heart, and humor, Megan took us back into the life of Linda Revere as her nest is emptying.

Linda has always held high hopes for her children's futures and trusts every prayer prayed for them will come to fruition. So, when her son, Nick, begins dating a young woman who isn't exactly what Linda expected, Linda's well-ordered life gets a little challenged. Her widowed father-in-law begins a new relationship, her best friend announces a move across the country, and her daughter prepares to go to college in the fall. Linda feels the fabric of her life unravel. The harder she tries to control the world and events around her, the less control she actually has. It is not until she realizes everything is out of her hands that she can see the joy before her in life as it changes.

This is a tender story of love and trial and children growing up. Megan has a keen grasp on the differences between sons and daughters and the ways they relate to their parents. You will find yourself agreeing and disagreeing with each of the characters. And within the pages you will find the beauty of a family that loves each other and God and works through everything together. I enjoyed this book even more than the first one. If you haven't read Searching for Spice I recommend it. However, Out of Her Hands stands alone and will be enjoyed even without reading book one.
What a fun book!  Dec 29, 2008
As a parent we all have dreams of how life is going to be like when are kids are older. What if those dreams are all blown out of the water? Out of Her Hands is a humorous book of a mother struggling with the less than perfect future daughter-in-law her son brings home.

Linda Revere's son, Nick, brings home his dream girl, Amber. Unfortunately Amber is not what Linda had been praying for, for her son. Linda feels like she is losing control of everything around her. Linda is still recovering from the loss of her mother-in-law, whom she was very close to. At the same time, juggling her job as the manager of a successful photography studio, and being mother to her two children who are in the midst of romance. She finds herself turning to her best friend during this time only to learn her friend will be moving away. Linda learns when everything is spinning out of control God is still in control.

For a Mom with a teenage son, I found the book hilarious. It is also a great reminder that God's will for our kids is not necessarily the plans we, as parents, have envisioned.
The Best of 2008  Dec 19, 2008
Every now and then a novel comes along that speaks to you long after it's been read. Out of Her Hands is just such a book. That's why I'm awarding it "The Best of 2008." Megan DiMaria is such a gifted writer, as I began reading it, I actually wondered if she based it on my life.

Don't let the cover fool you into thinking its fluff. Linda Revere deals with the tough midlife issues we all have to deal with like an unexpected pregnancy, a best friend moving away, problems with her adult children and her widowed father-in-law dating.

Megan's realistic characters draw me in and her detailed descriptions make me feel like I'm visiting their home. Too cold to go out? Grab this book and go stay with the Revere's for a while. You'll be glad you did.
Delightful!  Dec 18, 2008
Just like in real life, the family in Out of Her Hands is comprised of imperfect people. They disagree, disappoint, and frustrate the other members. But they also love each other.

I related to the main character on so many levels. What woman doesn't have visions of the mate their child will choose? And like Linda, don't we all at one time or another want to be able to control what's going on in our lives, and the lives of those we love? We forget there's someone else in control who can do a much better job than we can.

The novel is laced with entertaining humor. But Megan also provides her readers with substance. Out of Her Hands is a winner!

Great Story!  Dec 5, 2008
Megan DiMaria is a great story teller with an amazing gift of bringing her characters right into your living room. They live and breathe with realistic emotion and engaging drama. Definitely a page turner!
