Mrs. Covington's Sunday School Dropouts

I do not know what is wrong with my computer, but there is definitely a problem.  The other day MS Word reverted back to old version of a review and then yesterday it would copy and paste all but one sentence of a review (which was in the middle).  I have no clue why it is doing these things.  I have been using computers since they were big machines that took up a whole room (I am not as old as this sounds) so I am no novice.  This computer is only a few months old (I love the touch screen).  I will pray to the computer gods for things to improve!  Today I am sharing a review of a sweet Christian novel from Chalfont House.

I just finished reading Mrs. Covington’s Sunday School Dropouts by Connie Miller Pease.  It is a Christian story about Cathy Covington.  Cathy has been teaching Sunday school for over 40 years.  She taught the middle school age children and had a unique approach.  She believed in bringing the tales of the Bible to life (using actual objects like weapons and eating roasted or chocolate grasshoppers) and there was only ever one small fire.  Cathy is now retired and needs a little project.  She has decided to go and check on some of her past students.  The students who are not on the right track in life.  With the help of her cousin (Andi Clemens) she sets out to find and talk to over forty students and nudge them (maybe give them a really big push) back onto the right track.  Cathy also wants to get them back to Church and Sunday school. 

I give Mrs. Covington’s Sunday School Dropouts 3.5 out of 5 stars.  I liked the idea, the characters, and the town, but I found the novel hard to get through (I am not sure why).  One thing I did find offense was Cathy’s use of a BB gun to scare away squirrels.  Evidently Cathy did not like squirrels getting into her bird feeders so she would shoot at them with a BB gun!  The poor little things.  This novel is available on Kindle Unlimited.

I received a complimentary copy of the novel from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  The review and opinions expressed are my own.

I really do appreciate all of you that take the time to visit my site and read my reviews.  I am currently reading Unleashed by Eileen Brady.  Take care and Happy Reading!
