More About the Author

When asked about writing, author Chautona Havig says, "Books. I love them- always have. From my earliest years, I spent most of my free time lost in a book, until one day I realized that I had stories in my heart and mind that I wanted to tell. Time passed, life, family, and work got in the way, and my dream of being a writer seemed to vanish into the desert winds.

Dreams are beautiful things, though; they never quite disappear. I began writing again, editing, writing, editing...more editing... and now I have over a hundred books in progress and a few dozen published. I write the stories of fictional people who have real problems, weaknesses, and triumphs. Through their stories, I try to share the Hope that is within me."

Chautona lives in a small, remote town in California's Mojave Desert with her husband and seven of her nine children. When not writing, she enjoys paper crafting, sewing, and the knowledge that someday she'll be able to retire from home education.

I was first drawn to the book for it's fresh storyline. I've never read a book like it! I knew the author is a Christian author so I wasn't afraid it would be a reality show in book form. As I started the book, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. But by the 2nd visit, I was hooked. Mrs. Having has an exceptional gift for character description. As I read the book, I felt like I knew the characters for a long time. But what I loved most and was most surprised about was how this fictional book addressed so many areas of my own life. Each woman mirrored an aspect of myself (except one!). I found many of the same insecurities and challenges the women faced as once I too have faced or currently face. It convicted me to evaluate my own behaviors and choices in a new light.

As a wife of 12 years and a mother of soon to be 8 children, I find myself forgetting what it is like to be just me and not lose myself as mommy and wife. I saw a lot of myself in several of the lively women and my soul was renewed at the gentle reminder of what I was like before marriage and children. It was a well needed reminder to not take life to seriously, get back to what makes me, me and to truly live each moment.

It was an emotional roller coaster to read. Laughter, tears and suspense! The twist and turns of the story were thrilling. I was a little disappointed in Adric's ultimate choice, but quickly overcame that! I have read several other books by Mrs. Having. She is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors!

Hmmmm.....This was just an odd book for me. It was hard for me to wrap my mind around the idea of a pastor (who is the brother-in-law) of the main character recommending that a series of 12 women come and live with the man in his home (chaperoned) for the purposes of deciding if they could get married. Would a pastor ever recommend something like this? I think it's an open invitation for someone to get hurt and it's just odd to consider that you could find 12 women in this day and age willing to do this and truly open up.

My biggest problem with the book was that it seemed the farther you read it became so far fetched that I wondered what type of women the author would come up with next. Through the course of the book the potential relationships someone of a different race, people with high paying professional careers and aspirations, someone in a wheelchair, someone with severe emotional problems. It was like every single trait a women could possibly have needed to be captured in one of the characters.

I didn't really like the "hero" in the story. Although the author tried to paint him with flaws I felt he came across as too perfect and the women too flawed. I wasn't convinced he was truly in love in the end and this didn't feel romantic to me.

On a positive note, I would like to say that the author did a good job of coming up with a topic that is original. I have never read a book like this. And although I'm not sure I would again, I think it is ultimately what kept me reading.

The premise of this book, that 12 women would set aside one month each to live with one man (and a chaparone) in order to get to know him, possibly fall in love and "win" the man (as one character put it) is at best unrealistic and at worst insulting to single Christian women everywhere. Plus, I never understood why they actually had to live together when it seemed each of the women lived relatively close to the main male character, Adric. They've waited this long to get married, why not try regular dating?

Almost every one of the women was presented as being desparate to get married and the author took the opportunity to point out their flaws and why they weren't already married. I'm guessing this was intended to "help" single women readers identify with one of the women and introspectively evaluate their own flaws and why they aren't married. However I found some of the things identified as flaws in the women were actually strengths that pointed to flaws in Adric.

I had to push myself to finish this book for several reasons including its length . . . the story went on and on. Additionally I felt a growing dislike for Adric. I found him whiny and irritating in the way he treated the women. Also, his expectations that they would clean his house, cook the meals, garden, and generally take care of him during "their" month was selfish and self-centered. I don't mind an emphasis on more traditional and conservative family roles but the concept of sacrifice and seeking the best for the other person (1 Corinthians 13) didn't seem to enter his mind.

If I don't like a book I don't normally finish it, but I was trying to give the developing story a fair chance. Unfortunately for me this book was a disappointment.

This is an interesting idea for a novel, and one that seemed a bit odd at first. Honestly, my first thoughts were "Oh. How scandalous!" A single Christian man, looking for a wife, is set up by his pastor with a different woman for each month of the year. Each woman comes into his home and the couple invests the entire month into getting to know each other to see if there is potential for a future together.

The set up of the book includes copies of the women's dating profiles for the reader. The reader learns a lot about the women in those profiles and you'll find yourself rooting for some and hissing at others, even before they arrive on the scene. Though, the soft side of me wanted each woman to have some magic moment that might make her "the one". At times, I felt sorry for Adric, the main character, and for some of the women. Other times, I was excited that he had the opportunity to meet such neat ladies.

The characters in this novel are fresh and fun, and the plotline has some exciting twists. As an old married gal, I think this is a great story for a single lady to read. It's full of fun and practicality, and might even help to give some insight into looking for a husband.
