I did like hearing about some of the previous characters from the other books and how they were doing. It was like catching up with family. Lacey Rose left me a little irritated because I thought she acted like a spoiled child, though some people may have liked her tenacity. As for Charley, I think his mother would be shocked with the way he acted with two of the female characters in this book.
All in all I do like this book, just not as much as the first five. Now I'm on to the next book, At Liberty to Love, and hope to find the Caryl McAdoo style of writing I enjoy very much. Enjoy!
Both Lacey and Charley being brought up in a close-net family were naive about life, so they made many mistakes. They also adjusted well to their problematic circumstances of the time.
Lacey is rejected by Charley who she has loved all her childhood and goes off like the rebellious, spoiled, naive teenager that she is to make one bad decision after another. But as she matures and turns her life back to God, she asks for and receives God's forgiveness for those mistakes. That at least made the turmoil of enduring her poor choices and failures bearable.
Charley, a young man portrayed as a leader of men and a man of good character, quite naively, willingly, and weakly falls prey to TWO seductive older women. Both these women admit to having had other premarital or adulterous affairs and shamelessly ply him with liquor and such to tempt him. Does he run from temptation? Rarely. Does he show remorse afterwards? Maybe a little at times but evidently not enough to stop the continuance of the affairs. And, unless I missed it, he doesn't repent of his sins after he finally walks away from the women. To God, sin is sin. Charley's sin was just as grievous to God as Lacey's but she was the only one who showed godly remorse and regret for her sin. It seemed Charley just felt fearful and/or embarrassed about Lacey discovering his sins.
Charley ends up marrying Lacey...like he was doing her a great favor when he "chose her"...but he is constantly thinking about and lusting after Marah, the lover he left behind in Connecticut. Lacey's love for Charley at least remains steadfast throughout the book. Charley can't figure out what he feels for Lacey and that good-bye kiss until he finds her again; and even after marrying, her he can't give her his whole heart because, like an idiot, he left part of it in Connecticut. I am still wondering which woman he really loves. And with his divided heart, I'm not sure Charley had it figured out by the end of the book.
Allusions were made in this book that point to a continuance of this story line in future books. Without closure in this book to Marah's foothold in Charley's heart and the possible lingering consequences of their sin, I'm not sure I am up for more of this series. It is hard to enjoy Christian romance stories when it falls short of either.
I have a love/hate relationship with this book.
I love that it was not your typical mushy romance. It had depth, and people with real issues.
I hate that so much of the book treated premarital and extra-marital affairs so casually.
I love that the subject of drinking alcohol isn't treated like a deal breaker for christianity.
I hate that pregnancy and hard liquor were just par for the course.
I absolutely adored the mysterious character of Mr. Dithers.
But I could not forgive the lack of editing.
How can an author have so many books in a series, all so highly rated, when the incidence of grammatical and typographical errors are so frequent? It is very distracting. Besides the misplaced semi-colons, the over-use of unnecessary commas, the omitted words, and even a phrase where the authors fingers seemed to have been on the wrong keys, replacing letters with special characters, the historical accuracy of pricing really seems to be off! $40 for a pint of bourbon in the mid 1800's? An excess of $20 for a hotel room? It isn't even believable.
