Review: 
Fitting In, the third work I have read by Miss Morris, was quite endearing. Although not a favorite of mine, it was an enjoyable short-story with a great lesson. The writing reminds me somewhat of Janette Oke's – with a style of lovely and unique simplicity. 

Elizabeth was a kind young woman and a relatable character. Her struggles with not fitting in and feeling like an outcast were realistic. I was cheering for her so much at the end! 
Her husband, Paul, was super sweet. I loved how he called Elizabeth "Libby" and talked to his horse, Sir Drake. He was very supportive of his young wife. :) 
The Boice family were all so dear and sweet!! I loved their return to the community – thanks to Paul, Elizabeth, and God the Father. :) 

The one thing that confused me, though, was how Paul and Elizabeth were sometimes referred to as Mr. and Mrs. Leffler. Yes, that's their last name, but it confused me to have them called by first name one sentence and spoken of formally the next. 

That aside, it was a light, quick, and enjoyable read. :) I would certainly recommend it to someone who enjoys short-stories of people standing up for what's right! 


**I received a free e-copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.**
