2. Story is ok, even though there is the expected kidnapping.
3. No HEA. This is a cliff hanger.
4. I will not bother reading another book from this author!
5. Hope he hasn’t quit his day job!
This book, evidently written from an evangelical viewpoint, attempts to communicate values and a Christian message while also telling a story. Unfortunately, both the theological slant and the story itself suffer from some problems.
Beginning with the story, it has a simplistic storyline, a predictable plot and it is too sweet to be real. The storyline was so transparent that I suspected several times that I was mistakenly reading a book written for young teenage girls. I still have my doubts. The action in the story was too neatly tied up, and the heaviest action was taken care of in a couple of chapters near the end of the book.
On the doctrinal side, one can say that there wasn't even a drop of water involved in the plan of salvation presented in this novel. This is in stark contrast to the Book of Acts in the New Testament, where we find EVERY DECISION to obey Christ followed by water baptism. In the rest of the New Testament, mentions of forgiveness of sins without baptism are addressed to Christians who were already baptized into Christ. This isn't to say that it is the water that regenerates, but rather that water baptism is the point at which God has chosen to promise forgiveness of sins to those who truly repent and place faith in Christ.
The author clearly means well, but this book was hard to read all the way through and take seriously. It could just be that I'm too critical, but I don't think so.
This book is recommended for girls ages 13-18, and pretty much no one else.
