Author Tualla sets the stage where we are hooked into some kind of distressing event that is causing a lot of emotional tension between the girls.
Backing up three months to the start, we are introduced to college girls that have been friends for eternity, but even though their personalities are being constantly defined by age and life, friends stick together no matter what.
Three different girls, three different storylines, but uniquely blended together with some of the chapters opening with one of the girl's quotes, directing our attention to the storyline at hand and moving it forward.
I have to admit I loved Alex's story, as she developed strength and maturity in her devotion to God. Her struggles were real, but her faith continued to grow and deepen as her friend's problems spiraled out of hand.
I loved the style of the author's writing, as Love Defined is as true to life as you can get. This is not a sugar coated book, but definitely a Christian story that is probably happening all over the world to young adults and older teens, over and over again. Although, as in real life, we don't know what will happen in the long run with these girls, Tualla does give us a satisfying ending, knowing that God is faithful and His love endures. As the author reminds us: "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." 1 Cor. 13:13
There must be a sequel to this book!
Third but not least, is Andrea Taylor aka Andy who is the Politician's daughter so she should be all classy and uptight but she is anything but as behind doors with her friends, she lets her hair loose and is a party animal. What will happen though when one night of fun turns into a drunken party where she accidentally sleeps with Alex's bosses son and she falls pregnant ?
The story then leads up with the three of them taking a ride to an abortion clinic where Andy must make the decision of a lifetime and one that will either break or bond the three girls together forever.
Love Defined , was one of those College friendship tales where it's not till something major happens in our life that we can come to appreciate the friendships we have established in life and about the people who care for us most when times get hard.
In their final summer before graduating college, three childhood friends expect an uncomplicated transition to adulthood…but learn they all still have some growing up to do. Alex Makapulo is facing a crisis of faith. Lori Hanson embarks on the trip of a lifetime. Andy Taylor is looking for love in all the wrong places. (part of Amazon blurb)
I wish I could say that this novel was one of my favourites, but it simply isn’t the type I usually have on my shelves. That being said, I found the style of writing simplistic and the fact that three friends trying to find themselves together as well as individually surprising and well done by the author. As I mentioned beforehand, these types of novels aren’t my favorites which explains my review...
