I've read previous books by this author and really enjoyed them. Ranee Clark is a fun writer. This book wasn't my favorite of hers and I'm not completely sure why. I think I didn't really love Jane but I did admire some of the growth she made by the end of the book. The first part of this book is about the beginnings of a relationship for Jane and Sean. The second part is while Jane is on her mission and Sean is dealing with life back home. The third section is Jane returning home. I guess for me, this book felt more disconnected because even in the first part of the book, Jane and Sean have a rocky start. Jane is hiding things, she comes off wishy washy, lacking a backbone and she doesn't treat Sean all that great. The second section is the two apart. Jane is still struggling with all the same things, just in a new setting and Sean is drifting. Both have things going on in their own worlds that cause frustration. I think I just didn't connect to the characters the way I wanted to. I didn't love them. I felt like I was on the outside looking in.
Even saying that, I did like the book, I just didn't love it. Like I said before, Ranee Clark is a fun writer and I always look forward to her books. I will keep coming back because I know what to expect from her and I like it.
Ooh, and I love the cute cover on this book!
Content: religious situations and talk, some kissing
Jane has been wanting for years to serve a mission for her church and submits her mission papers when she feels its the right time. Even after trying not to get serious, after months of dating Sean they both realize they love each other and want to get married. Jane has a hard time expressing her feelings to others and dealing with situations head on, so unfortunately over the years she has had bad relationships and experiences because she doesn't speak up. She ends up waiting to tell Sean about her mission papers and leave date only weeks before she leaves, which obviously affects their relationship in a negative way. However, Jane feels very strongly about serving her mission in Alaska and asks Sean to wait for her and he agrees.
Most of the book follows Jane's experiences while on her 18 month mission trip and their emails back and forth. With only a couple months before coming home Jane stops getting emails from her boyfriend and assumes the worst- that he's met someone else and he won't be waiting for her.
I liked reading about Jane's experiences while on her mission and trying to connect with her teaching companion while teaching others about God. I also liked reading about Sean's life and how close he was to his family and students at his high school teaching job.
I felt like the whole story was leading up to Jane and Sean's reunion, only to be disappointed that it was crammed into two chapters at the end of the book which felt very rushed. It did not leave me a very good impression of Sean and his wavering emotions and feelings back-and-forth between the two women he needed to choose from.
This was a quick romantic read which I did enjoy but was left feeling disappointed at the end.
I received a copy of this book complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.
