Behind Her Smile | Rosemary Hines


Today I am reviewing Behind Her Smile, the 6th book in the Sandy Cove series by Rosemary Hines.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Not good enough…the words echo in Madison Baron’s mind as the darkness presses her to be thinner, more beautiful—somehow more attractive to her peers.

A junior in high school, she is facing life without her childhood love, Luke Johnson, who is off to college in the Midwest. Alone with her insecurities, Madison yearns for acceptance—until Miles that is.

Will a relationship with this new student on campus be the answer she seeks? And how will his resistance to her Christian faith affect her future?

As the two of them grow closer and closer, something happens inside of Madison, and she finds herself more insecure than ever. Gazing into the mirror at her thinning face and trendy makeup, she hopes no one sees the fear behind her smile.

The sixth book in the Sandy Cove Series, Behind Her Smile, touches hearts of young and old alike with the message of God’s redemption and love, reminding us that our true sufficiency and value come from Him and Him alone.

Madison Baron is heading for rough waters…

Maddie is beginning her junior year in high school; her best friend has left for college; and her parents just don’t seem to understand her.

But she’s determined to be thin – and popular, and like so many teens, she begins to make some poor choices. Hopefully her mom, her grandma, and great grandma can guide her back to safety.

I don’t want to give too much away (hopefully I haven’t done so already) but you get the picture, right?

Now there are some who might say Rosemary Hines gets a bit too preachy, but I don’t get that message at all. Rosemary writes a wonderful story, showing Christ as the answer to our problems.

I have read each book in this series and I highly recommend them. If you haven’t read them, you are missing out on a great series! If you have a Kindle, you can download the first book in the series absolutely free!

Don’t miss this exciting series!


God bless you!

    I enjoy books where the author has scriptures and the importance of having God in your life. Oftentimes, reading a book encouragement is found from it because God’s love, forgiving power, hope, grace and mercy is shown through the characters’ lives that can be applied to the individual reader’s life. I will have to add Rosemary Hines series to my TBR list. Thank you, Donna, for recommending this serious.
