The prologue and epilogue read as memoir, but the book itself is not. I was a little confused by that, but soon got into the action, buzzing through the last half to see how the author tied up loose ends. Few storylines deal so honestly and biblically with common family struggles. Readers are reminded that keeping God present in each moment offers hope, peace, and promise in difficult times.
Forgiveness. Stewardship. Faithfulness. Generosity. These are the major themes woven into this family-centric novel. Minor characters added to the texture and authenticity of the main story.
Most important to me, is how the entire book supports Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Great for most ages, and a creative choice for home-schoolers and folks looking for good Christian fiction.
Pros: As mentioned above, the strong message of forgiveness was a touching one. The characters were likeable, the story was simple, and there were a lot of drool-inducing foods described throughout. :) Maybe the next book by this author should be a cookbook to supplement sales? :)
Cons: I got a little confused while reading it as the entire book switched points of view constantly. One minute, Rob thought something, then Karin thought something, then one of the twins thought something, etc. It didn't take away from the charm of the story, but it did make me more aware that I was reading rather than just forgetting that I was reading and enjoying the story as it went.
At any rate, it was a book that will stick in my mind for awhile. Always a good attribute to any work of art. :)
