Memorable Monday - October 1, 2018

It's Memorable Monday! This idea was created by Becca from The Becca Files to highlight books that we've read in the past and are memorable to us. 

This week I'm highlighting Leaving Oxford by Janet W. Ferguson. This book is memorable to me because the main character suffers with panic attacks and I do, too. It was interesting to read how she dealt with her anxiety and although I deal differently, I could totally relate to her. This was the first book I'd read by this author and I liked it so much that I went on to read several more.

About the Book

Escaping home to Oxford, Mississippi, seemed like a good idea. Until it wasn’t.

A year after a tragic accident in Los Angeles flipped her world upside down, advertising guru Sarah Beth LeClair is still hiding away in her charming hometown of Oxford, Mississippi. And she may well be stuck there forever. Suffering from panic attacks, she prays for healing. Instead, her answer comes in the form of an arrogant football coach and an ugly puppy.

​Former celebrity college quarterback Jess McCoy dreamed of playing pro football. One freak hit destroyed his chances. Although he enjoys his work as the university’s offensive coordinator, his aspirations have shifted to coaching at the highest level. His plans of moving up are finally coming together—until he falls for a woman who won’t leave town.

 As the deadline for Jess’s decision on his dream career looms, the bars around Sarah Beth’s heart only grow stronger. But it's time to make a decision about leaving Oxford.

Now It's Your Turn!

  1. Sweet post! Thank you :) I too have suffered from panic attacks, and I'm sorry you've had to deal with it.

    My memorable book... Tough to pick. My go-to old fav is Francine Rivers A Voice in the Wind and An Echo in the Darkness. I love Hadassah's faith despite persecution.
