Paige Alder is busy. She barely has time to take a shower and grab a quick snack much less pursue a relationship or squeeze in time to finish her wreath for her apartment door. I can completely relate to Paige. Sometimes its way too easy to get so busy doing for others that you forget to take time to focus on yourself. Paige Torn is a book about how the good things in life can easily smother out the more important things.
Paige Torn Book Review
I was trying to describe this book to a family member and couldn’t place it in a particular genre. It’s not a romance, although Paige does meet a handsome guy who shows her interest. It’s definitely not suspense or mystery. It occasionally made me feel like I was reading a book club or Sunday School devotional lesson. But I never wanted to quit reading. I was hooked from the very beginning – maybe because I can relate to the character.
Life so often gets full and you suddenly wake up on day and realize you haven’t taken time for yourself or for God. The last few pages are where you finally realize that this book is just the build up for the series. The sequel releases this fall and I can’t wait to see what is going to happen next.
About the Book

Everyone knows they can count on Paige Alder. But between volunteering at church, putting in overtime at work, and helping her best friend plan an anniversary party, she’s lucky to grab a cheese stick for dinner. Paige can’t even remember the last time she had a few minutes to relax or dig into God’s Word. Then she meets laid-back Tyler, an attractive, Jesus-loving guy. Will he be able to help Paige get her priorities on track?
