In “Amy Inspired” by Bethany Pierce, we meet Amy Gallagher. Amy is a writer who is trying desperately to be published. She teaches college creative writing classes to help support her until she is published. Amy’s roommate and friend, Zoe is also a writer. Zoe seems to be able to write about anything while Amy is stuck. Zoe invites her friend Eli to move in with them while he’s looking for a new place to live. Amy and Eli do not get along at first, but they put that aside for Zoe’s sake. Zoe has to go back home to take care of her mother who is dying from cancer. Amy and Eli slowly become friends and struggle with their feelings for each other. When Eli moves out, Amy is left all alone and feels like her family and friends are moving on without her while she is trying to figure out what she wants out of life. Amy soon finds the courage to follow her dreams and her heart. I received a free copy of this book to review from Bethany House.
