My Review: I really wanted to like this book. But every once an awhile there's a book and you really want to like it, you want to be swept into the story, but it just doesn't happen. And I guess this was just one of those times.
The writing was strong the whole way through, and I loved how the Biblical truths were expressed. That was all done very well.
But I must say that I had a hard time with the main characters and the plot. They just didn't engage me. Sometimes I was more interested in the side characters who made brief showings than the main characters. But keep in mind that this is only my personal opinion, and I know some other people who loved this book.
The progression of the romance throughout this book baffled me. At one end of the spectrum I didn't know why they were put together, and on the other end I didn't know what made them so 'unsuitable' to begin with.
Overall I found this book perplexing, though well-written, and Biblically sound. I've read many other books by this author, which I thoroughly adored. But I just couldn't get into this one, I tried really hard, but I just couldn't. So I guess my final thought is that I have lukewarm feelings about this book. I think some people might like it, but I just didn't. Thanks for reading :)
Final Rating: 3 out of 5
