A Clean Story but No Christian Message
on January 5, 2014
This was supposed to be Christian fiction; one of the contenders for the heroine's heart was a minister, all the characters attended church, most were very careful to observe the proprieties. However, when Lena was torn between two men—a widowed minister with two daughters and a wealthy man injured in the war, she never prayed about the decision. The advice from her former minister's wife was to listen to her heart. The only time I recall reading the word prayer in the book was when Lena said she would pray for her wealthy suitor. If you choose Christian romances simply to avoid explicit language and immoral behavior, this story will satisfy. If you choose Christian romances because you expect a Christian message, this book will disappoint.
