Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Australia with Four Inspirational Love Stories From Down Under joins hearts and hands of a family as each novel reveals more and more about this particular group of relatives. While recovering from a tragic car accident that kills her fiance and family, Gail finds another path with Jim. Hillie finds love and her roots at the same time with nice pastor Rance Telford. Beth and Arthur find their love for one another only grows after he becomes crippled in a wheelchair and must rely on her for moral, spiritual and family support. Last but not least Aunt Jean, the
persevering nurse who cares for all, finds Christmas happiness with an old flame. I enjoyed this book and feel lucky to have read it! Australia is the perfect backdrop for these lovely stories!

Format: Paperback
I read a lot of books Christian and otherwise and I have to say this is one of the worst books I've read in a long time. Actally since I started this book over a month ago I have put it down and read 4 other books in between. I just didn't feel that it was a well written book. When the author was describing how the characters reacted to a situation or comment from another character she was very redundant. It seems like everyone was giving Sharp looks and Piercing glances it just didn't make the characters seem real made them all seem alike.
I'm still not done with the book only about 50 pages left, I don't like to leave a book unread once I start it not even a poorly written one. I will be glad when I can finally close the chaper on this one.
