Miss Fishfly, a novella by Linda Glaz, is a sweet contemporary romance about two young people dealing with the baggage from their pasts, which they
don’t want to carry into the future. Christy Hayes, a hard working nurse, was once deserted by her father and has been looking for love with the
wrong kind of guys. Cole Keller, a war hero from a dysfunctional background, has been betrayed by the one woman he thought he loved.
them are struggling to find something more in their lives, but don’t think God is the answer. They are thrown together by the wedding of their best
friends, Aleni and Brice, and again at the bedside of Cole’s dying grandpa. A friendship between Christie and Cole that begs to be more, and the
gentle prodding of the God-fearing people in their lives, send the two on a quest for healing and a future that promises more than their pasts. /_ Miss Fishfly is a page-turning, quick read with strong characters and real life situations. It’s a story of hope and healing. Both the hero and
heroine have flawed pasts, but also have good qualities, like real people. Christie is caring and sensitive to other’s needs. Cole has a tender spot
for children, especially Brice’s stepson, and respect for his Grandpa Hartway. We should all have a Grandpa Hartway in our lives—someone lovable
who imparts the message of God’s grace with truth and wisdom.
I give Miss Fishfly five stars for an enjoyable read. My only complaint is that
this novella is too short! I would love to read more about Christie, Cole and their families.
