Harriet Bisset is a preacher’s kid and determined not to be perceived that way. Molding herself after the prodigal son in the Bible, Harriet hit the downward spiral fast and hard. After one too many bad experiences a friend helps Harriet find the errors of her ways and leads Harriet back into the fold.

Now, Harriet is trying hard to “not be lead into temptation” and is serving on several different organizations at her father’s church or working at a café. And everything is going great. Harriet is keeping her distance from bars and bikers, at least until her pastor father hires a church consultant to revive the church, and this consultant thinks Harriet needs reviving too.

Splitting Harriet is the story of forgiveness and grace, with a very human heroine. A good girl turned bad turned good, she is determined to stay on the straight and narrow. Even if it kills her.

As a good girl who stayed good, I couldn’t exactly identify with Harriet. It was hard for me not to intensely dislike her from the beginning of the book. But as I kept reading I found that Harriet grew on me, and I started to care about her and what happened to her.

Chick lit fans are not going to want to miss this newest story by award-winning author, Tamara Leigh. Discussion questions are included at the back of the book.
