Love, Charleston

Love, Charleston

On 11/21 mzzterry wrote: Love, Charleston While Contemporary Christian Fiction is not my favorite kind of book, I did enjoy Love, Charleston by Beth Webb Hart. Hart managed to create characters with real depth that grabbed my heart. This is not your typical love story. The characters have plausible issues in their lives, some ... Loved Love, Charleston
