As president of the Council of Christian Women and with an elderly father to keep after in addition to her motherly and wifely duties, Sadie is adamant not to add anything else to the long list of roles she plays in life. When the mayor shows up on her doorstep offering and almost demanding she take a job running the local cemetery and park, Sadie has absolutely no intention of saying yes. But when it seems as if the whole town is determined to not rest until she agrees to accept the position, Sadie reluctantly agrees to become " 'Fraidy Sadie the Cemetery Lady". Will this position bring life back into Sadie's seemingly hectic but melancholic life, or will it just add to the heavy burden she already carries?
SADIE-IN-WAITING is full of funny one-liners and sayings that will have you laughing in the beginning of this book. It then turns somewhat more serious as Sadie struggles with what to do about her cantankerous father and her search for information about her mysterious past. Annie Jones is an award-winning author with several books written and many more to come. Overworked mothers of teenagers and daughters of aging parents will see themselves in Sadie. More mom-lit than traditional romance, SADIE-IN-WAITING is an enjoyable read for a cold winter evening.
