Book Review: The Magnolia Story
Mary and I are faithful watchers of Chip and Joanna Gaines show, Fixer Upper, on HGTV. I read the book cover to cover in one night, I couldn't put it down. The book is all the background info you want to know if you watch the show. Honestly, how many shows do you watch that you wished provided more background on the characters. In this book Joanna and Chip share about their lives growing up, from school through college and the relocations along the way. They both walk us through how they met and how the early years shaped their story. The strong family ties and their faith was evident, it was very refreshing to say the least. It's a great read about hard work paying off and how the tough times drew them closer to each other. I'm looking forward to their next book, Capital Gaines, due out in the fall.
