    Having done every Bible study Beth Moore has ever written, I knew I loved her nonfiction. I had no idea what to expect from a fiction novel. She has not disappointed. The story is wrapped around a murder mystery plot, but goes so much deeper. Into relationships, family dynamics, int...

    By Andrea Renee Cox I was so excited that Beth Moore was releasing her first novel, but it never occurred to me that it would feature such worldly things as tarot cards, an abortion, multiple pregnancies out of wedlock, and using the Lord's name in vain. That last one (at the very l...

    3.5 Stars I'm not sure how to rate this book. It started really slow, really slow. But then I got into it and the pace picked up and pieces fell together. And then it resolved, with about a hundred pages left. And I slugged through those last 100 pages. It might have worked better...

    I. JUST. CAN'T. EVEN. . . If you could compare a book to a work of art, this novel would be honored with the comparisons to such greats as the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper. If I could rate this with more than five stars, I would give it ten. It was just so amazing! I didn't want ...

    This debut novel by non-fiction writer Beth Moore was deep and dark. Jillian Slater lives in San Francisco near her mom, who is more like a friend than a mom and with her boyfriend, who is more like a controller. She learned her estranged father is deceased and flies to New Orleans ...

    This is an exceptional mystery you will not believe it. It is one of the mysteries that grab you by the throat straight from the first pages. You pick it up and you find that you haven't taken a breath until you realize hey you better breathe.. You pick this book because of the author ...

    The story line caught me from the first page. I couldn't put the book down until I had finished reading. I only received a sample from Netgalley, but I am definitely going to purchase the book and finish it. SOON! The grandmother Olivia is a very mysterious character. I am looking forw...

    Beth Moore is a huge name in Christian non fiction, specifically to women's ministry, so there was immediate name recognition when I received this book for review. Her first fictional work was an ambitious endeavor (to say the least) but as a whole missed the mark of a novel worth reco...

    Jillian Slater's life could best be described as fractured; practically homeless after fleeing an unhealthy relationship, she lands in New Orleans with her estranged grandmother, where her father's unsolved murder taints everyone and everything around her. Saint Sans, a beautiful forme...

    Really enjoyed the beginning, but it became predictable and the faith thread became to over powering at the end without much exposure in the beginning. I finished it but lost most my interest by half way through. ...

    In her first work of fiction, Beth Moore proves that she is as skillful at telling a good story as she is at Biblical exegesis. ...

    I absolutely loved it!!!! Couldn't put it down!!! ...

    Beth Moore is a great Bible teacher Fiction....not so much.....it took about 75% of the book to kind of get into it but I've never not finished a book and kept trudging through ...

    I'm not really sure how the historical flashbacks tied into anything. I must have missed something. but the modern storyline was good. ...

    I liked this book a lot better than I thought I would, a solid 3.5 enjoyable stars. I was worried it would be preachy - it wasn't. I was worried every character would be a perfect upright uptight Christian - they weren't. In fact everyone in the book was a human, with flaws and struggl...

    First let me say, kudos to Tyndale House Publishers for doing such a lovely job publishing this novel. The cover art, the artwork on the inside pages ? these are beautiful and inviting. I believe that reading a book isn?t solely about the writer?s words. It?s the experience of ...

    Wow! Beth Moore can write A REALLY FANTASTIC NOVEL! ! This isn't a preachy novel for those of you that are scared away by that. This is about a 25 year old girl who leaves San Francisco to go to her Grandmother's boarding house. Olivia Fontaine's boarding house is called St Sans by the...

    Surprisingly Intriguing I am a huge fan of Beth Moore! I've completed many of her Bible studies over the last too-many-years-to-tell; first as a participant and for the last few years as a leader. She is unknowingly one of the most influential mentors in my spiritual walk...at the ...

    My review is based on an ARC sample from NetGalley. With sample ARCs, ratings end up being based on the first few chapters and that is not enough to give a true rating and review. That being said, my librarian gut says that this little mystery will be a hit! Beth Moore has a Gift of...

    I loved that Beth wrote a fiction book and I enjoyed the story line but.... it was too long. It was 11 hours and that is just too long to keep my interest. I think it just had too many details. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the book but It needed to be about 3 hours shorter....

    3.5 Stars I'm not sure how to rate this book. It started really slow, really slow. But then I got into it and the pace picked up and pieces fell together. And then it resolved, with about a hundred pages left. And I slugged through those last 100 pages. It might have worked better...

    This debut novel by non-fiction writer Beth Moore was deep and dark. Jillian Slater lives in San Francisco near her mom, who is more like a friend than a mom and with her boyfriend, who is more like a controller. She learned her estranged father is deceased and flies to New Orleans ...

    Really enjoyed the beginning, but it became predictable and the faith thread became to over powering at the end without much exposure in the beginning. I finished it but lost most my interest by half way through. ...

    In her first work of fiction, Beth Moore proves that she is as skillful at telling a good story as she is at Biblical exegesis. ...

    I absolutely loved it!!!! Couldn't put it down!!! ...

    Beth Moore is a great Bible teacher Fiction....not so much.....it took about 75% of the book to kind of get into it but I've never not finished a book and kept trudging through ...

    I'm not really sure how the historical flashbacks tied into anything. I must have missed something. but the modern storyline was good. ...

    I liked this book a lot better than I thought I would, a solid 3.5 enjoyable stars. I was worried it would be preachy - it wasn't. I was worried every character would be a perfect upright uptight Christian - they weren't. In fact everyone in the book was a human, with flaws and struggl...

    First let me say, kudos to Tyndale House Publishers for doing such a lovely job publishing this novel. The cover art, the artwork on the inside pages ? these are beautiful and inviting. I believe that reading a book isn?t solely about the writer?s words. It?s the experience of ...

    Wow! Beth Moore can write A REALLY FANTASTIC NOVEL! ! This isn't a preachy novel for those of you that are scared away by that. This is about a 25 year old girl who leaves San Francisco to go to her Grandmother's boarding house. Olivia Fontaine's boarding house is called St Sans by the...

    Surprisingly Intriguing I am a huge fan of Beth Moore! I've completed many of her Bible studies over the last too-many-years-to-tell; first as a participant and for the last few years as a leader. She is unknowingly one of the most influential mentors in my spiritual walk...at the ...

    My review is based on an ARC sample from NetGalley. With sample ARCs, ratings end up being based on the first few chapters and that is not enough to give a true rating and review. That being said, my librarian gut says that this little mystery will be a hit! Beth Moore has a Gift of...

    This was a great mystery as Jillian heads to New Orleans for her father's funeral. After she arrives the police tell her he was murdered and this news is unwelcome by her estranged grandmother and her grandmother's manager, Adella. Saint Silvanus is the apartment building her grandmoth...

    I really enjoyed The Undoing of Saint Silvanus. Jillian has had no contact with her father or his family. For as long as she could remember, it was just her and her mother. Jillian receives notice that her father had died and that her Grandmother will pay expenses for her return. I...

    I loved that Beth wrote a fiction book and I enjoyed the story line but.... it was too long. It was 11 hours and that is just too long to keep my interest. I think it just had too many details. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the book but It needed to be about 3 hours shorter....

    Beth Moore has another hit! This book was very enjoyable. I have participated in many Beth Moore bible studies and have enjoyed and learned from each one. This book was fast paced with interesting characters and a great plot. Not to preaching for non-believers but enough information...

    I thought it was a great first novel. It transported me straight to New Orleans. I read it as part of a book club meeting and really enjoyed our discussions and what we saw as symbolism through out the book. We are messy and life is messy and how Jillian came to find her own walk is be...

    Please note: I read this sample as a free e-ARC from Netgalley. I was interested in reading this as I've heard so much about Beth Moore and her bible based teachings. The chapters I read definitely peaked my interest to want to know more about Jillian and the dynamics of her dysfunctio...

    I liked this book a lot better than I thought I would, a solid 3.5 enjoyable stars. I was worried it would be preachy - it wasn't. I was worried every character would be a perfect upright uptight Christian - they weren't. In fact everyone in the book was a human, with flaws and struggl...

    Wow! Beth Moore can write A REALLY FANTASTIC NOVEL! ! This isn't a preachy novel for those of you that are scared away by that. This is about a 25 year old girl who leaves San Francisco to go to her Grandmother's boarding house. Olivia Fontaine's boarding house is called St Sans by the...

    Surprisingly Intriguing I am a huge fan of Beth Moore! I've completed many of her Bible studies over the last too-many-years-to-tell; first as a participant and for the last few years as a leader. She is unknowingly one of the most influential mentors in my spiritual walk...at the ...

    My review is based on an ARC sample from NetGalley. With sample ARCs, ratings end up being based on the first few chapters and that is not enough to give a true rating and review. That being said, my librarian gut says that this little mystery will be a hit! Beth Moore has a Gift of...

    I loved that Beth wrote a fiction book and I enjoyed the story line but.... it was too long. It was 11 hours and that is just too long to keep my interest. I think it just had too many details. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the book but It needed to be about 3 hours shorter....

    Beth Moore has another hit! This book was very enjoyable. I have participated in many Beth Moore bible studies and have enjoyed and learned from each one. This book was fast paced with interesting characters and a great plot. Not to preaching for non-believers but enough information...

    I thought it was a great first novel. It transported me straight to New Orleans. I read it as part of a book club meeting and really enjoyed our discussions and what we saw as symbolism through out the book. We are messy and life is messy and how Jillian came to find her own walk is be...

    Surprisingly Intriguing I am a huge fan of Beth Moore! I've completed many of her Bible studies over the last too-many-years-to-tell; first as a participant and for the last few years as a leader. She is unknowingly one of the most influential mentors in my spiritual walk...at the ...

    By Andrea Renee Cox I was so excited that Beth Moore was releasing her first novel, but it never occurred to me that it would feature such worldly things as tarot cards, an abortion, multiple pregnancies out of wedlock, and using the Lord's name in vain. That last one (at the very l...

    3.5 Stars I'm not sure how to rate this book. It started really slow, really slow. But then I got into it and the pace picked up and pieces fell together. And then it resolved, with about a hundred pages left. And I slugged through those last 100 pages. It might have worked better...

    I. JUST. CAN'T. EVEN. . . If you could compare a book to a work of art, this novel would be honored with the comparisons to such greats as the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper. If I could rate this with more than five stars, I would give it ten. It was just so amazing! I didn't want ...

    This debut novel by non-fiction writer Beth Moore was deep and dark. Jillian Slater lives in San Francisco near her mom, who is more like a friend than a mom and with her boyfriend, who is more like a controller. She learned her estranged father is deceased and flies to New Orleans ...

    The story line caught me from the first page. I couldn't put the book down until I had finished reading. I only received a sample from Netgalley, but I am definitely going to purchase the book and finish it. SOON! The grandmother Olivia is a very mysterious character. I am looking forw...

    Really enjoyed the beginning, but it became predictable and the faith thread became to over powering at the end without much exposure in the beginning. I finished it but lost most my interest by half way through. ...

    In her first work of fiction, Beth Moore proves that she is as skillful at telling a good story as she is at Biblical exegesis. ...

    I liked this book a lot better than I thought I would, a solid 3.5 enjoyable stars. I was worried it would be preachy - it wasn't. I was worried every character would be a perfect upright uptight Christian - they weren't. In fact everyone in the book was a human, with flaws and struggl...

    My review is based on an ARC sample from NetGalley. With sample ARCs, ratings end up being based on the first few chapters and that is not enough to give a true rating and review. That being said, my librarian gut says that this little mystery will be a hit! Beth Moore has a Gift of...

    This was a great mystery as Jillian heads to New Orleans for her father's funeral. After she arrives the police tell her he was murdered and this news is unwelcome by her estranged grandmother and her grandmother's manager, Adella. Saint Silvanus is the apartment building her grandmoth...

    I really enjoyed The Undoing of Saint Silvanus. Jillian has had no contact with her father or his family. For as long as she could remember, it was just her and her mother. Jillian receives notice that her father had died and that her Grandmother will pay expenses for her return. I...

    I loved that Beth wrote a fiction book and I enjoyed the story line but.... it was too long. It was 11 hours and that is just too long to keep my interest. I think it just had too many details. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the book but It needed to be about 3 hours shorter....

    Beth Moore has another hit! This book was very enjoyable. I have participated in many Beth Moore bible studies and have enjoyed and learned from each one. This book was fast paced with interesting characters and a great plot. Not to preaching for non-believers but enough information...

    I thought it was a great first novel. It transported me straight to New Orleans. I read it as part of a book club meeting and really enjoyed our discussions and what we saw as symbolism through out the book. We are messy and life is messy and how Jillian came to find her own walk is be...

    Please note: I read this sample as a free e-ARC from Netgalley. I was interested in reading this as I've heard so much about Beth Moore and her bible based teachings. The chapters I read definitely peaked my interest to want to know more about Jillian and the dynamics of her dysfunctio...

    A gripping novel. Beth Moore did an excellent job of putting a story to the principles she teaches! I loved the bold example of water baptism! ...
