My second new-to-me author of the new year, and another winner! In Lean on Me Pat Simmons uses the story of Tabitha Knicely's caregiving for her Aunt Tweet who suffers from dementia to demonstrate the blessings and challenges of being a caregiver. Marcus Whittington's role in the story prompts readers to be more aware of the support needed by those in caregiving situations. God places people in our lives who need our time and attention with no strings attached. Simmons tells this story against a backdrop of a love story: Tabitha's love for her aunt, Marcus' and Tabitha's love for one another, and God's gracious love for each of us. She also inserts enough humor into the telling that readers do not become bogged down in the heaviness of Tabitha's responsibilities and sacrifices, and so that they can appreciate the deep emotions that make one willing to bear those things.

I am grateful to have received a copy of Lean on Me from Sourcebooks via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion. I was under no obligation to provide a positive review and received no monetary compensation.
