Why do we watch Romantic Comedies and sigh over their heroes, and smile in contentment when the final credits roll and the destiny driven couple has had their fairy tale ending? Why do we cheer when the main characters make bad decisions all in the name of love?
When you stop to think about it, it doesn't make much sense. Romantic comedies have little to do with real life, and are often filled with flaws. Ms. Ellis honestly tells her story, and shares her struggles all the while encouraging, and pointing to the gospel of Jesus Christ. It's been a long time since I've read a book like this one.
What most impressed me about this book was that it wasn't the typical book that talked about dating or courtship and all the things you should and shouldn't do. It is a book that focuses on finding truth in the only firm foundation of Jesus Christ, and avoiding the pitfalls that can detour us, especially in today's culture.
I was very impressed with this book, and would happily recommend it to other single young women.
