My biggest issue with this story was the lack of Christian faith throughout. I love stories where characters grow in their faith or ones that have characters that experience the life changing conversion that comes with accepting Jesus as your Savior. And, I know that we are all sinners, but when there is no repentance for sins that occur often, well, that really bothers me. I felt like the faith part of this story was non existent until the very end, and I did not feel like the characters grew at all, especially Grace.
Speaking of Grace - I just did not connect with her at any point in this story. I never believed that she really loved Ian. He seemed more like the thing she fell back on because everything else fell through. I felt like Ian was basically her doormat. And, honestly, I liked Ian better when she was not around. He just accepted her back with no questions really.
I really wanted to love this story as much as I did Five Days in Skye, but even though I had issues with this one, I am definitely looking forward to reading the third book of this trilogy when it comes out in the spring.
This book dealt with so much. The two main characters in this story battle their feelings and relationship with each other, as well as their own pasts. They struggle with self-doubt, grief, loss, self-worth, and the strong tension they feel between each other.
The author does a beautiful job of showing God's forgiving grace and healing that can come if we reach out and take the step towards Him.
While reading this story, I was caught up in the powerful message of redemption and forgiveness, and of finding one's path in life.

The prayer and faith references were not very explicit until the final third of the book.
