I love a too-good-to-be-true hero. While true that the pastor, Mark, must undergo a transformation from his initial declaration of pure service to God to that of sharing his life with a God-ordained helpmeet, he does so with little struggle. Even the temptation of being with Sarah and the major obstacles in their way are a bloodless coup. But I meant what I said. I enjoyed this pastor’s maturity and would love to learn at his feet. Our heroine, Sarah, has all the right ingredients, too, in a youthful and spunky joie de vivre. Her solutions to handling her parents are a good lesson for us all. Her deep-seated faith life was truly inspirational.
Bolton’s setting of small town America during late settlement is a good microcosm of personalities and opinions. I was afraid for the fate of the library, and am only slightly shocked that times haven’t changed all that much. A local book club I belong to tries to read at least one “banned” book a year—only they keep changing! Readers will have to check this book for some sweet and entertaining way to deal with curmudgeons.
Answering Sarah is told through the eyes of both Sarah and Mark. Sarah learns not only to ask her questions at the right time and place, but to learn when silence is a golden, mature option. I enjoyed this story, and though it is quite long, it didn’t feel as though it dragged and kept me reading into the next chapters even when I knew my time was up. Recommended for those who enjoy rural and rustic historical romance that takes its sweet time to be told by achingly sweet and respectable characters who know when to pull the reins and when to smack them.
Ten years later, when Sarah is on the edge of womanhood, a young minister come to their church. He’s full of ideas and questions of his own. The two struggle against their romantic feelings and other mounting concerns of the community against the newly built library that where Sarah is the librarian. He seeks God’s will and teaches her to do the same.
Ms. Bolton has a pleasant writing style and with her well-hewn skills draws the reader into her characters. The descriptions of the hard life of a farmer in Wyoming and the development of the community atmosphere enhance the story.
There were certain scenes with Peter, Fred and the Bentons that were very profound. And the lesson on the Urim and Thummim was exceptional. Some would say Answering Sarah is too preachy, but I found it to be a beautiful lesson. Anytime a Christian book makes you examine if you are really loving your enemies, loving your neighbors, putting real time in with God and ministering to those outside of the four walls of the chrurch, it is a first-rate novel and everyone needs to get a copy.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review.
