Reinventing Leona by Lynne Gentry published by Tyndale's Digital First program in June 2011 is full of figurative language and realistic characters. I loved Lynne's writing style and her creative use of words and quips. The book hooked me with the first chapter, and I wanted to keep reading to find out what happened. It's fast paced and an easy read. Though one part of the novel was predictable, there were a few surprises along the way, and I could just picture the characters, since they were so vividly illustrated. Annoying as some were, they proved their value in the end and that they were really true friends. This is a novel where you can say the characters make it a gem. I loved the laugh near the end, and I especially loved the methods the author used to demonstrate how a preacher's life and a preacher's wife's life aren't easy. I feel the characters were realistically portrayed by showing them all as mere humans and none of them as perfect, even though they were Christians. The vivid descriptions of the looks in their eyes and on their faces were awesome.
