Melissa Tagg does a great job incorporating a strong Christian message into an entertaining, contemporary story of love and life. Her characters, Colton Greene (a professional football player forced into early retirement because of an injury) and Katherine Walker (a one-hit writer who’s feeling washed up) learn to trust God’s plan as better than their own when their paths intertwine through shared hopes, disappointments, trials and triumph. Ms. Tagg creates a strong sense of small-town life and community, of fall and football, and the challenge of finding one’s way when life brings unexpected changes. Humorous, realistic, and unrushed- “From the Start” will provide you with several hours of enjoyable reading. If you’re not familiar with Melissa Tagg I’d recommend this book as well as her first novel, “Made to Last”.
