However, on the downside, Blum characters and plot were not developed beyond a surfacey narration. I was disappointed that this story's perspective was written from that of an outside observer, rather than from the personal perspectives of the individuals who make up this story. This made it hard to become attached to her characters, and made the tale drone on in a disinterested fashion at times.
There was something that disappointed me even more about Blum’s story. I was happy that she did not gloss over the difficult, painful realities of this sin-filled planet, but, at the same time, I found it ironic that she described these violent events in such detail, while quickly skimming over more important events. Obviously, these descriptions were in no way gruesome, but they did make me wince, especially her description of Jeb's fight with his father. Younger readers may find this disturbing.
Then, on the flip side, Blum portrays the lives of the Christian characters in such an extreme light of perfection that I found it very difficult to relate to them.Read more ›
As the story progressed, I got to know Caleb, Anna, Iain, Maggie, Rachel, Miles, John, James, and Toby, and enjoyed following their story. There is definitely a strong Christian emphasis in the story (which I appreciate) and a lot about seeking God for His direction in your life.
A few things I really appreciated:
~I appreciated how Miles would just break out into prayer during tough times.
~I appreciated the realistic conclusion that though we may present man with the Gospel, we cannot force him to accept it. Though I almost didn't want to read it, it is very true that some people, though we witness to them, we may never know in this life whether or not they accepted that Gospel for their own.
~I appreciated that the salvation message was very clearly presented.
A few things that I was hesitant about:
~I will admit that I was very cautious in reading about a Christian woman corresponding with (and practically courting) an unbeliever. Though it turned out well (and it was very clear that Maggie was not the reason for Caleb's profession of faith), I know that such is not always the case. It is easy for our emotions to run away with us and a Christian girl might hope for the same results as Maggie and Caleb, and before she realizes it, gets swept into an unbiblical marriage. This is pretty much the main point that I cringed in reading the book.Read more ›
I do have one thing to mention to the author, that is when the preacher announced Anna and Miles marriage, I believe he presented them as Mr and Mrs Stuart and it should be Jenkins right? Don't mind me, I usually can find errors in books. God bless, I need to get the 4th book now
