I loved the characters. Livy and Jack both have such depth to them. It was great to see them grow and develop throughout the book. And I also loved the small glimpses into their childhood too. I find there are too many novels out there where the characters fall in love for the first time or have never had a truly serious relationship before. And while those stories are good.... This book offers a view of a relationship where the previous relationships have to be overcome in order for the new one to take hold. It was a nice change of pace. I love how the characters grew and how they overcame their pasts.
I'm not going to lie. I loved the romance too. I love Christian Fiction that is clean but still shows what a dating relationship is really like. That things get heated up and passionate. That it shows on the pages of a book that two people can be in love, hot for each other and still make good decisions. I think it is important for young people to read Christian fiction that doesn't end with a peck and a friendly hug.
Another aspect of this book that was so very well done was Livy's past relationship. Too often we gloss over the bad things that happen in relationships and we don't talk about the hard things. I appreciate Tysinger tackling the hard conversation of verbally abusive relationships. I hope that if a woman reads this and realizes it is happening to her that she can find the help she needs.
I also really liked how Tysinger ended this book. I won't give it away but the reconciliation and forgiveness involved was truly inspiring. I was very encouraged by the ability Livy had to be such a wonderful example.
Jack and Livy feel like old friends now. I loved the setting of the book too. And I hope that Tysinger has a second novel up her sleeve before too long because I need to read more of her writing!
The author sent me an advanced copy of this book. However I have also pre-ordered the Kindle version because I loved it so much. All opinions in this review are my own.
Reading about Livy bringing life back to her grandmothers place was a sweet way to honor someone she loved. I liked how she came back to the little town and seemed to fit in right away. What I really liked abut this story was the vulnerability that Livy exhibited and how she needed to get past hurtful words her ex-boyfriend had said to her. It's hard to believe in yourself when you continuously are belittled.
Jack is a welcome addition to this story that brings hope for happiness in his and Livy's life. Jack has been deeply hurt by his ex-wife and has had a hard time trusting anyone. I liked how Jack and Livy seemed to hit it off and become comfortable with each other. The story brings up a great subject about forgiveness. Can Jack forgive his ex-wife? Will Livy be able to allow God to show her how special she is? The story is very well written and brings two people face to face with hindrances that have kept them from letting go of the past. I loved the part in the story when Owen tells Jack,"Unresolved anger and resentment can eat away at your spirit without you even knowing it. Then it becomes a big problem."
Jack and Livy each will face what has hurt them and make a decision that could set them free from bitterness, rejection and anger. Can they let go and allow God to show them grace and experience what forgiveness is? The ending is very emotional and I felt tears steam down my face. The story allows readers to feel the emotions of freedom when you allow God to embrace you with open arms. Thank you for a story that is filled with a love that sets us free from our past mistakes.
I received a cop of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
