Beware of Subject Matter
on September 24, 2003
Winter of Fire is a captivating book with an excellent overarching theme - equality for all people. However, some subject matter seems a bit "R-Rated!" Almost every time the heroine meets a young man, the young man wants to have sex with her. At one point the couple, that barely know eachother, are half naked before she stops. She does stop the young man every time, but only because of her dream that she must make come true. Her dream stops her, neither respect for her own worth or furture nor moral convictions. These scenes were unnecessary and could have easily been editted out. Two unresolved inconsistencies remain in the book: 1. The lesser position of women in society and 2. The worship of God and the abuse of His Name.
