A lovely warm and hope-filled read, this is a romance with heart, soul and compassion. Faith is engaged, however she has a pain-filled secret, will it remain buried, or will life throw a great big strop in the midst of her wedding preparations? Faith is such an engaging character, she is easy to like and imagine as a friend. Occasionally the novel floats back in time, revealing Faith’s past, piece, by often jagged piece. As with Beth Moran’s previous titles, there is more to this captivating romance than the traditional will they, won’t they scenario. The author excels in making her characters feel real, she looks at the darker side of life, yet fun and frolics also abound. ‘The Name I call Myself’ is thought-provoking, yet it’s also ready to put a great big smile on your face, how delightful!
All Faith Harp wants is a quiet life - to take care of her troubled brother, Sam, earn enough money to stop the wolves snapping at her heels, and to keep her past buried as deep as possible. And after years of upheaval, she might have just about managed it: she's engaged to the gorgeous and successful Perry, is holding down a job, and Sam's latest treatment seems to actually be working this time. But, for Faith, things never seem to stay simple for long. Her domineering mother-in-law-to-be is planning a nightmare wedding, including the wedding dress from hell. And the man who killed her mother is released from prison, sending her brother tumbling back into mental illness. When secretly planning the wedding she really wants, Faith stumbles across a church choir that challenges far more than her ability to hold a tune. She ends up joining the choir, led by the fierce choir-mistress, Hester, who is determined to do whatever it takes to turn the motley crew of women into something spectacular. She also meets Dylan, the church's vicar, who is different to any man she has ever met before.
