The Pretender By Ta'mara Hanscom



Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs until Rosa Caselli finds out that the same hopeless blackguard she prayed for over the last fifteen years has won the heart of her own daughter. Rosa recounts his enormous record of wrongs and brings the matter to her husband. They decide that their daughter needs never to know of Rosa's prayers--an omission that results in troubled spirits and heavy hearts.

I was born and raised in South Dakota, and I love her people and rich history. For many years I’ve also had a deep love for Italy and her colorful chronology. I was fortunate enough to visit Italy on my 25th wedding anniversary, and I added some of the details of my travels to my fictional series The Caselli Family Series. 

My favorite sport is baseball – Detroit Tigers – and I can’t wait until the next time I get to see them play in Comerica Park. 

I live for the next family barbeque. 

My husband and I own a national pizza franchise in Iowa, where we currently reside. We have three grown children and one grandson. We’ve rescued two cats and one Pomeranian. 

I teach AWANA Cubbies and speak at women’s events.
 
My Thoughts...
 
I hate to write reviews like this one. But here goes. I had the hardest time reading this book. I could not read it, it reads like a very bad self published book. No editing at all. There was no story no reason to what I was reading.
I had a very hard time saying this but I gave it 1 star. It is the first book in the series, I hope and pray that book number two gets edited and the book has a story in it.
The Mary Reader received this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are our own.
