This review is from: Prairie River #1: A Journey Of Faith (Mass Market Paperback)
I usually don't read these kinds of books, but once I started this one, I couldn't put it down. It is written for juveniles and thus it moves at a fast pace and doesn't really have a lot of low points. Some parts are rather difficult to believe, but the intent is to show young readers how their faith can be exemplified through fictional characters.
There are really no villains in this book. Some people don't like Nessa Clemens, but the author doesn't really develop an evil antiheroine. None of the situations Nessa finds herself in are life-threatening and things always seem to work out. as I said, it is a book about faith more than the historical setting it takes place in.
