SUMMARY (source: Booksneeze)
An inspiring, heart-warming novel set in romantic Charleston, South Carolina.

“Stay and wait.” Anne Brumley heard these words years ago in the bell tower at Saint Michael’s Church in Charleston. She’s certain they were from God and has been waiting for true love ever since. But her sister, Alicia, and their sister, Alicia, have their doubts. Could Anne have misunderstood His calling?

Saint Michael’s new rector may be the answer to Anne’s prayers. Good-old-boy and widower Roy Summerall can’t believe he’s been called to pastor such an historical and a decidedly rich congregation. He can't possibly measure up to their expectations.

It will take a miracle of extraordinary love to provide a happy ending for each of these four Charleston friends.

Love, Charleston is the story of three woman, sisters Anne and Lish along with their cousin Della. They're all close friends who love and support each other.

Each of these women represent different aspects of contentment and martial status. They're each going through their own life issues, second guessing if this is where they're supposed to be at this point in their lives.

Anne has dreamed of love her whole life, but she's wondering if she'll ever find it. She puts her faith and trust in God that she'll find the happiness she's always longed for.

Della is a writer, as well as a wife and mother who dreams of having a best seller published. She's also unsatisfied with her life. When her ex fiancé returns to Charleston, she finds herself wondering if she missed out by marrying her husband. She faces having to make the decision of whether she'll stay with her husband or leave him in hopes of giving her daughter a better life.

Lish and her husband are both doctors, after giving birth to her third child she sinks into severe depression. Her sister and her cousin are both worried about her. They cant seem to convince her husband how bad the depression is.

Roy Summerall is a minister and widower with a small daughter who wants a mother. When he's relocated to Charleston to become the minister of St. Michael's.

Each person has their own struggles and challenges and the storyline follows each one on their journey of discovery.

I enjoyed this book, it had a way of making me feel like I knew the characters personally. I could relate to what each of the ladies were going through.

I like that each of the characters had their own story lines, and how each woman's story intersects with the others and ties them all together. I enjoyed that Love, Charleston was more about the friendships between them than the family ties.
