Review: Everything Is Just Beginning by Erin Bartels


My rating: 5 of 5 stars


An Immersive Story of Music, Struggle, and Starting Over from an Award-Winning Author

Michael Sullivan is a talented lyricist and a decent guitarist, but since he was kicked out of his band (and his apartment), he's not sure he'll ever get a record deal. Living with his loser uncle in a beat-up trailer and working a dead-end job, Michael has little reason to hope for a better future. Until the invitation for a swanky New Year's Eve party shows up in the mailbox. It's for his uncle, with whom he shares his name, but his uncle is going out of town . . .

On the effervescent night of December 31, 1989--as the Berlin Wall is coming down, the Soviet Union is inching toward democracy, and anything seems possible--Michael will cross paths with the accomplished and enigmatic young heir to a fading musical dynasty, forever altering both of their futures.

Award-winning novelist Erin Bartels enchants with this story of two lonely souls who have exactly what the other one needs--if they could simply turn their focus from what is ending to what is just beginning.

My Review: 

Everything Is Just Beginning is another wonderful read by Erin Bartels. I have enjoyed earlier books by this author in the past and was excited to have the opportunity to read her newest release. This one is no different. I was engaged with the story, which had believable characters, an element of faith, and a wonderful setting. It is one that made me feel as though I was part of the tale and was hard to put down. I loved it.

I give Everything Is Just Beginning five stars. I believe readers and fans of clean fiction will most definitely want to pick this one up and give it a read. I would love to read more releases by Erin Bartels in the future.

I received a paperback copy of Everything Is Just Beginning from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
