Parenting  Jun 28, 2006
Plenty Good Room is a story of mothers and foster children. Tamara Britton is a specialist at the Care for Kids Agency and helps "at risk" families. Tamara agrees to let 14-year-old Sienna Larsen live with her temporarily pending placement with a foster family. Sienna is a smart-mouthed, disrespectful teenager with an attitude. Tamara's calm, quiet and spiritual life is turned upside down with so many "conflicts." During all of the turmoil, Tamara is confronted with learning about her own family's past, which ultimately allows her to live better in the present. Tamara finds that love and her faith in God are greatly enriched by events--past and present. Tamara and Sienna develop and bond and eventually grow in their relationships. Cheri Paris Edwards creates a heart-warming and very loving and giving first novel.
 
So many good messages!!  Mar 23, 2006
Cheri Paris Edwards debut novel left me wanting more!! Tamara & Sienna's stories were heartwarming, and I was caught up in the story lines after just a few pages. This story will help you to remember that there is plenty good room in our lives for others, and there is plenty good room for for us in God's Kingdom! Well done!




 
Great Christian Fiction  Feb 21, 2006
I enjoyed this book immensly. The characters were very engaging and well developed. It was as though I knew each character . The message that I got from this book is that even though we may feel like we are alone in our problems ,God is always with us. That He never leaves us and when we are going through our most disheartening trials as the poem Footprints states, that is when He is carrying us. In one chapter when Yvette/Tamara was running from one place to another not knowing where her next meal was coming from, God stepped in as the old preacher who took her in and fed her. She was afraid to stay and she ran again but He always was with her whether was the old preacher or the teenage boy in the group home who looked out for her. They represented the Lord and His love for us. When she faced her most toughest challenge-Sierra- He placed Denise Jackson in her life so she would have someone to confide in and lean on in her time of need.
As the book came to its climactic end I must point out that God even helped Sierra to find some purpose in her life with her gift of singing. I sure hope this isn't the last I will read about Tamara and Sierra. I would have enjoyed and epilogue at the end of the book ,butI pretty much drew my own conclusions.
I do hope to read more from Ms. Edwards because this was a great read.
 
Heartwarming!  Jan 27, 2006

"This story will touch you in ways that will forever change you. Opening your eyes to the difficult world of displaced children. Who are removed from abusive situations in their homes and often times end up in abusive foster homes. Revealing just how hard it is for these lost children to learn to trust and love again."

"Cheri Paris Edwards is a gifted writer who possesses a unique talent and uses that finesse to bring some awareness to readers through her underlined message of inspiration to discover a way to move pass life's stumbling blocks and emerge anew through the acceptance of God's abiding love."

A good debut  Nov 11, 2005
PLENTY GOOD ROOM by Cheri Paris Edwards
November 10, 2005

this site Rating: 3/5 Stars

PLENTY GOOD ROOM by Cheri Paris Edwards, is the story of Tamara Briton, a 30-something single African American woman with a successful life working for a child protective agency. She lives alone and is for the most part a loner, with a few close friends. When Sienna Larson comes into her life, a teenager that needs a place to stay, Tamara's life is turned upside down.

Sienna is a teenager that has been in the foster family system all her life. She's known to be trouble, and it isn't any different for Tamara. Tamara does her best to make Sienna feel at home, but the girl does anything she can to get attention, usually something inappropriate. Tamara is not happy that she has to deal with Sienna, who is almost always acting up, but she tries everything including taking Sienna to church. Tamara gets advice from her friend Denise Jackson, a woman who has had success with foster children and soon Tamara notices a change in Sienna.

With her new found faith in God, Tamara finds the strength to care for Sienna, and at the same time she makes friends with Isaiah Perry, one of Sienna's teachers at school. Tamara's life has definitely changed since she had been introduced to Sienna, and not all of it has been bad.

The story of Sienna and Tamara is the main story, but there is a subplot about a young runaway. The two stories run in parallel, and while it can get a little confusing, by the end of the story the reader will understand who this runaway is. Another subplot is Tamara's need to find the true biological parents of her friend Yvette. Tamara states that Yvette is the reason why she is now working to help other children find happiness by finding for them better family environments for these children that are living in unstable homes. All three plots will be tied up at the end, and the reader should be happy with what they learn.

I found the novel intriguing enough to finish it, but I felt that at times the writing could have been tighter. Things felt a bit vague throughout the book, but it is possible this was the author's intention. Regardless, PLENTY GOOD ROOM is well written for being a debut novel. Recommended.
