Typical Christian romance
on June 9, 2012
I give this book three stars, because although it held my attention, nothing stood out from among the many other Christian fiction books I've read. My litmus test of a great book is one that you can't put down, and that you think about the characters as friends long after you are done. Honestly, after I finished this book, I had to work to remember the characters names.
It had it's good points: the main character struggles with addiction, and the author did a good job of portraying the consequences that follow addiction. I also liked how the author realistically portrayed the fact that even after giving his life to Jesus, the character still had to battle the intense desires of the flesh. So many Christian fiction writers act as if, after the character becomes a Christian, they no longer have any troubles or temptations.
The book was weak in some aspects of character development and detail. For example, our heroine obtained her nursing degree in 18 months? (Yes, I've very picky over accuracy of details). Also, at times I found the immaturity of the heroine annoying.
Overall, not a bad book. It's your typical, run-of-the-mill Christian fiction. I wouldn't read it again, but I also don't regret reading it.
