Many women couldn’t walk away from a man with as much going for him as her fiancé for fear of never finding someone else, let alone never recovering financially. So from the outset, I admired Ava’s courage. There were times when I wanted to knock her up the side of the head for subsequent choices, as realistic as they were for a young woman struggling to find her way. The characters are fun and there are great twists.
I was right with Ava through the whole story, always hoping along with her that she would find what she’s looking for. With her impulsive and unwise choices, I sometimes wanted to give her a good talking-to. Would the handsome, mysterious NYC undercover cop bring her true love? Or maybe it would be in pursuing her dream, dancing. Possibly the kind, insightful homeless young man would help her know the love she seeks.
I enjoyed Sarah’s writing, although there were a few scenes that I felt pushed the envelope in the Christian Fiction genre. This isn’t a ‘preachy’ Christian book, but Ava and other characters do have a relationship with God, and we see Him through her journey. I liked getting to know each character, and by the end I felt like I knew Ava, very well.I loved the ending, and I hope to read more by Sara Goff.
All in all, I enjoyed the book. It would be interesting to see this turn into a movie!
