Really great book for any Christian who wants to be spiritually encouraged yet likes romance too. At first I was a little confused because , in the heaven scenes, the author refers to God as "Joshua" but I think that she got that from "Yeshua"and decided to turn it into Joshua instead of Jesus. That was rather confusing but it was nonetheless a book I very much enjoyed. Not only did it have a lot of romance (which I like) but it was very spiritually encouraging to me. What I really liked was that it was a God centered romance rather than simply a "I like you so why don't we make-out" kind of book. Overall, very enjoyable.

You will love, laugh and cry as you read this amazing story. Showing us different people, and situations of how they try to handle it. The setting was that of a pastor,and being a pastor's wife. One could relate of people in any work place. Of how people do things, because they feel they should, or what is expected. As in this story of the hurts that Sarah felt by the women in church . Doing what they wanted her today, and expected of her because of being a pastor's wife. Keeping these hurts inside her, till she mets Andrew. Realizing she had shut herself off from people. With Andrew and how he lives his life.
He not only lives, and listen to what God wants him to do. Loving his family, and now also Sarah, with a complete Christ like love.
Some may not like the reference to scripture and the written examples showing how they asked God in all things. Or of how Sarah starts a journal to begin to heal and let God help her day by day. Also,, some may not like the heavenly dialog of those in heaven. I thought it all fitted together. Great story and great examples of living with God in control of one!s life.

I enjoyed this book. Sometimes I wasn't sure how true to life this was but I'm sure it is not impossible. Being a widow myself I could not relate to being ready to marry again after 3 mo but that is another story as well. I also had to think about the "heavenly window" of any truth to that. But at the end of the book the writer does explain that this was just her thoughts and after all this is a novel. Saying all of this I really did enjoy the book. It was sweet, fun, and a perfect ending.

I loved this book! I cried a lot at first. The author painted an amazing picture of heaven. It was definitely nothing like I had imagined. It was much better (more real life than what I always imagined) If you're curious about what walking with God might mean, then read this book!

She has some fun ideas about heaven to stimulate our thinking along the way of a godly story. They serve to generate some excitement for heaven, knowing that heaven is going to be better than we can imagine. It's a nice story of relationships that work out from the beginning, so you kind of have the happy ending early in the book, so there is about no suspense or drama. Instead, you get godly thought processing with good examples for the reader to learn from. It does make for a tad dryer story, as it's mainly narrative of events, but it's narrative of emotions too. There is very little in descriptions of physical things or the environment, like a warm wind blowing a a scent in the breeze. There are also no flashbacks in time to set up or explain a reaction in the present, but memory's are explained in the present. It has good character descriptions and why people think the way they do. I liked how she put, and I'm sure I won't use the same good wording, but something about that what we love in a spouse is actually tied to Jesus loving us though a spouse. Yeah, you'll have to read it to figure out what I mean.

This is a story that will draw you in and cause you to want to walk closer to the Savior. Just a wonderfully sweet book. I loved it and hated to come to the last page. I felt like I was leaving good friends. That said, I went straight to my Bible...I want to learn to enjoy Jesus more and practice His presence daily. Thank you. Melanie for this fantastic book!!

This book had a nice approach to death and Heaven and good family dynamics. Unfortunately, I didn't care for the writing style, and felt that more character development was needed. Also, the plot lacked momentum and there were too many storylines. I stopped reading at the end of chapter 3.

I loved the story-line and the characters in October Joy. The author's idea of what heaven might be like is not at all as I imagine it, but it made an interesting story. I only gave it four stars rather than five, because there were times that the story seemed to drag on about what someone was thinking or something that had happened in the past.
