To be honest, even though this novel was written as a Christian Romance, I do believe its contents also has a purpose in supporting and building up the body of Christ, to attain the unity of faith and the knowledge of the Son of God. I must say my heart soared when the Holy Spirit was mentioned and having read Christian based fiction in the past this is the first time the Holy Spirit has been mentioned as of yet. I am moved and overwhelmed, as my heart has been hoping that an author would bring at least a mention of this precious gift from God into their works one way or another. :)
The author elicits empathy and Christian values to the forefront as the characters pushed through major changes. As they faced adversity and blessings during major shifts in their lives, it made Neka’s unwavering faith in God and the growth in James a delightful page-turner. I highly recommend the read and look forward to more from this author.
James grew up constantly battling with his brothers. The years of meanness, fighting, and cruelty have left their mark and turned him into a much harder person than he wanted to be.
For four years Neka and James had an unlikely friendship that completed them both in ways they didn't understand, so when James needed help she jumped at the chance to change her fate. But what started as one friend helping another set events in motion that would change the course of both families' futures. Feeling like they are losing themselves (and each other) they must fight to come together as one-or lose more than they could imagine.
How do you know God's plan for you? What happens when you aren't sure if you're following His path or your own? Will rushing destiny bring happiness or pain? A Gateway To Hope is a beautiful book that asks all of these questions. E.C. Jackson has crafted a story that will keep you turning the pages to find the answers.
Jackson brings her story to life through her incredible writing, attention to detail, and amazing characters. You can see and feel everything clearly as you read; you feel like part of the story and that helps to take this book to the next level.
As soon as you start reading you are pulled into the story. You are drawn to Neka as she struggles to find her place and James as he fights to prove his love without losing himself; drawn to their families while they try to find the balance between helping and hindering. Jackson writes with a flow that sweeps you away to her world while blocking out the rest of the real world. Once you start reading you find it hard to stop...I know I did.
I really loved this book. The characters were relatable and the story was real. You didn't find yourself thinking that this would never happen-instead you understood what they were going through. The struggle to blend two lives while staying true to yourself is a very real thing many of us can relate to, and Jackson brought that to life perfectly. She also includes God and His word in a natural way. None of it feels forced, and I loved that.
The story revolves around the dichotomy between family life and the start of a new nuclear family. Everyone knows how this process can be unsettling, since it concludes the transition into adult life. It’s no surprise then that James’ father pressures him into marrying a woman he doesn’t love: he wants his son to finish his definitive transition into becoming a grown-up. In his mind, his son can’t be a full-grown man unless he is married, and that’s a prerequisite for him to run the family business.
Neka is a sweet, God-fearing, amazingly pretty 21-year-old that is shy and reserved. She’s been friends with James for a long time, but secretly fell in love with him. She learns beforehand that James is going to be dumped, and decides to seize the opportunity to bring them closer together and change the nature of their relationship.
One can expect a book with a steady pace, it never becomes boring, and there’s a nice psychological development to Neka’s character, my favorite.
I recommend this book to people interested on reading about love, hope, and life’s unpredictability. 5/5 stars!
