Her plot line in this book was outstanding! She tells the story of Emily, who's father has passed away, leaving her sole proprietor of the family's dairy farm. But, she soon finds out about Frank, the alcoholic accountant hired to help keep the farm. Cecelia did a wonderful job in pulling reality into this Godly fiction story. She adds just the right amount of twists in the plot to keep you turning page after page.The characters tugged at my heart and I couldn't help but pray for them!
I highly recommend this book with 5 stars, for an evening by the fireplace read. It's full of love and hope and best of all, full of our Loving Heavenly Father shining through Cecelia's words! Well done, again, Cecelia!
An intriguing romance burgeons when Franklin Reese, initially an uninvited Certified Public Accountant, enters into Emily's world to assess the Cooper farms' worth. In spite of the reason for Franklin's presence, it is through Emily and Frank's close interactions they realize an attraction for one another. However, because of things past, the two find themselves apprehensive of taking their relationship to the next level. The two main characters, Emily and Franklin, are faced with issues of death, gambling, alcoholism and spirituality in this novel.
I liked the fact that the author held me in suspense of Laura's, Emily's stepmother's, motives as far as finances and living arrangements were concerned. Ms. Dowdy did not give away too much too soon. The imagery throughout the novel was great. I actually felt like I've visited a town like Monkton before. I was able to imagine a rural, farm town not too far from the hustle and bustle of a big city where there is open land and greenery abound. The title is very fitting of this novel and readers that aren't already aware of the importance of paying attention to detail when it comes to finances will definitely be enlightened after reading this selection. I was also pleased with the way the novel ended and was glad to see all work out for both Emily and Franklin's good. This was a relatively, short easy read and I would consider reading future novels from this author.
Towards the end, the story was rushed and the development was not as good as in the first one "John's Quest" by the author. It is hard to write the story in such limited space. During the conversations the writer often wrote a summary of what was said and not actually using a dialog inside the dialog. I did not like that. But I understand that the writer had to fit the whole story.
The writer holds strong beliefs, but I believe that I know how the third story will look like by the same author. She has repeated the same plot by using different people and different surroundings for her second book. Women are of strong beliefs and men are not saved. Their attraction is growing. And by helping the other person and praying for the other person, that person turns around and becomes a believer which allows them to marry at the end. The people are real and have their personal problems. The writer used nice descriptions to take you right there to the scenes.
But at the end of "Milk Money", the heroine was holding strong attraction for the hero and that occupied her thoughs, but then she was too much hesitant towards him in the end. The writer explained why, but I think that love sometimes is too strong to think clearly. Love is very, very strong. So, I just was surprised that she was holding grudge towards him so strong. Love is blind, I do have to admit. Yes, we have to make decisions and make right choices, but don't we forget when we all had been falling in love.
I know how important it is to build a relationship having the God in the center most of all. But I would love to see a different plot by the author.
But these stories would be good for any single women up there to remember that God should be in the center of the relationship.
