I will say that is is a more liberal book of the Inspirational line. I love Inspirational, but a lot of authors write what strict Christian readers want to hear - little sin among Christians. In this book, we have some grey areas. Daniel likes to look at Elizabeth's butt, and Elizabeth dresses in a way that draws attention to it. At one point, Daniel even touches her backside. There's also a scene where they sleep together (innocently) and Daniel makes it known in his thoughts and voice that he'd like to do more than touch her...
Though some Christians may shun away at things like this, I think it shows the more human side of us. It added some fizz to the story...
The story line and setting were superb. Alexander's obvious research into photography of that time period and historical context as well as her knowledge of Colorado culture, topography, and native American lifestyle all added to the richness of the overall story. Winding its way through the plot was a faith thread that was both credible and believable.
If you like historical fiction, definitely don't miss this one. It made my 2016 favorites list.
FAVORITE QUOTES: (Way too many to include but a few!)
"Better to keep your focus on the goal rather than the obstacles."
There can't be different versions. Truth is a constant. A person's perspective might be skewed, but that doesn't change what the truth is."
"That's what God does with us, after all. Puts us out into the world where the only real boundary is that of His love. His love either compels us or restrains us. There is nothing stronger.."
"As long as you're still breathing, child, you still got choices."
Experiencing the perspective of those who lived pre and post American Civil War in a well-written story, with well-developed characters on their individual journeys, was a joy. An added bonus was the gratitude and kinship I felt for the main character, as a professional photographer myself who from time to time is pulled up short in contemplation of our maker, and the breathtaking beauty he created for the world. Though recognition of a higher purpose and reverence were referenced throughout the story, it was not in any way preachy, and was woven in beautifully, as an emotion some of us feel when we consider the good things in our lives and the strange paths that led us to them.
