I just finished reading “Jessie”, which is the second book in the “Coastal Chronicles Series”. It was sent to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
“Jessie” is a Christian fiction novel written by Rebekah Lyn. “Jessie” was written about the space program at Kennedy Space Center in Titusville, Florida. Jessie was the baby of four boys…Max, Sam, Ricky, and himself. He made it a point to watch all the launches and learn all that he could about the space program because his dream was to be an astronaut. In one of the launches his mentor, Gus Grissom, is killed in an explosion, but he doesn’t let Grissom’s death stop the mentorship. He begins to dream of having long conversations with Grissom…even about his love and forgiving his abusive father and giving him a second chance.
I always love Rebekah Lyn’s books…mostly set in my home state of Florida. I love being able to recognize the places and put myself into the stories. I remember getting up early, fixing thermoses and snacks, and going to the Banana River to watch the launches, and raising my kids with the same traditions. It was really fun to read about things I’d actually experienced. This story is also filled with history facts about the space program…FUN FUN FUN J
I recommend you read, “Jessie”.
