A Fun, Romantic Novel - Loved it!
on April 3, 2012
I loved the characterization in this book. The journey Bill takes was very real to me. Sometimes tragedy throws us off course for a time, and only love and faith can truly heal us. Thank you for this great (and romantic) read!
A WORD ABOUT THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS: I was surprised to see negative reviews here bashing Christian beliefs, which is so not the point of a review. Any single (or married) Christian feels it is VERY important to fall in love and marry someone who actively believes in God. So many important decisions we make in life are guided by our beliefs, and to marry someone who calls our beliefs "BS" or who feels left out because Christians might not be attracted to them really aren't looking at this book with its target audience in mind. That one of the characters longs to find a match who shares her faith, is something I feel everyone who believes in God and practices their religion will completely understand. This isn't hating or leaving someone out, but a desire to completely share all aspects of their lives. If you can't understand why a practicing Christian would want to marry a Christian, then what's the point of downloading a Christian-based novel?
The funny thing is, I didn't find any of this the point of the novel at all. It's about Bill's progression from someone who runs away when trials come to someone who is healed by love of a woman and becomes strong enough to face his fears. It's about a woman who already made a similar journey being tested once again, and how she must learn to see the good in someone despite their differences in faith WITHOUT giving up her future goals. (I hope to find someone like her one day.) Most of all, it's a good, fun read.
