Book Review: The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord

Publish Date: June 1, 2017
400 Pages [Kindle edition]
Published by Bloomsbury

Lucy Hansson was ready for a perfect summer with her boyfriend, working at her childhood Bible camp on the lake and spending quality time with her parents. But when her mom's cancer reappears, Lucy falters--in her faith and in her ability to cope. When her boyfriend "pauses" their relationship and her summer job switches to a different camp--one for troubled kids--Lucy isn't sure how much more she can handle. Attempting to accept a new normal, Lucy slowly regains footing among her vibrant, diverse coworkers, Sundays with her mom, and a crush on a fellow counselor. But when long-hidden family secrets emerge, can Lucy set aside her problems and discover what grace really means?

Emotionally-charged and unforgettable, Emery Lord's storytelling shines with the promise of new love and true friendship, even in the face of life's biggest challenges.

My Thoughts:
I was gifted an ebook via Netgalley.
I have to DNF at this point. I almost put it down after two chapters but decided to at least give it more of a shot, but after almost a quarter of the way through the book, I cannot connect with it in any way, shape, or form. It just isn't for me.
