I must have read something a lot different than all of the other reviewers here.
I didn't feel like any of this story was believable, except for the part where Becky walked into the parish office, only to find him in a sexual act with another woman. Other than that...I found the story was too far fetched and really lacking in important details.
Spoiler warning.....Do not read below if you don't want to know what happens...
Here's a few lacking details I'm talking about....
Example #1-Like Elsa...it was never told why Elsa and her father acted like sworn enemies. Yes, she did tell the girls that she and their mother were cousins, but the question of why there was so much blatant animosity between their father and Elsa. Did she catch him doing something he shouldn't have? Did she try to step in between him and his deceased wife? Maybe they even had an affair with one another, who knows, but it would have been something that should have been cleared up.
Example #2-And why when Becky went to her church, did Elsa make the statement that she wasn't ready to work there yet?
Example #3-And what the heck is the connection between Jim and Becky's father anyway. Why would a father take Jim's side over his own daughter. That made no sense to me either. And why is Jim so eager to do Carl's bidding? Is he being blackmailed?
Example #4- What was the purpose for killing off Marsh in the story line, anyway?
Example #5- The sparkles...I guess they were suppose to represent a miracle of sorts, but as far as I know, there was no miracles that happened in this story. If there was, I'd sure like to know what the heck the miracle was that took place.
Too many loop holes and unanswered questions. If I had paid for this book, I would have felt so cheated, but thankfully it was free so all I really lost was my time.
Would I recommend this book? No, definitely not.
