There were key moments that I pondered well after I put the book down. An example is the section of the book where the title comes. Simple living is still life and is still beautiful. Still ...

This book is haunting and heartbreaking and absolutely wonderful, if you can even say that as it's such a sad tale. I mean to read all about ... Still Life, by Christa Parrish - #review

On 4/3 Sandi wrote: Still Life by Christa Parrish left me a little uncertain about how I feel about this novel. It is a novel about Ada who was raised in a strict, religious sect who married an outsider, Julian Goetz and a lady Katherine who has a troubled marriage.

On 3/17 Katherine Scott Jones wrote: I was a happy girl for the days I was reading this novel because this is what I love: Christian fiction that reads like mainstream, with all the gravitas, grit, and nuance that that entails, but without the profanity, without the sex-without-consequences, and with a healthy shot of hope for second chances. I ... Transcendent, earthy, and already a fave

On 3/13 Wendy @ Ladybug Daydreams wrote: I’m not going to sugarcoat this at all. I hated this book for a long time. I didn’t like Ada because she was a disaster. She was so frail that I couldn’t relate to her at all. I didn’t like how Ms. Parrish skirted the issue of what kind of sect Ada came from. There was no way to understand her ...
