The problem: it drags on and on with the same senario repeated. Each chapter seems an exact repeat of the last chapter. We get it! He's sure she's the next Mrs. Karlsson and she's running from her past. That's about it for the first half of the book. I almost quit reading after chapter 4 in frustration, however I did continue. The last half of the book was avtually pretty good; not terribly predictable and well-written. I don't want to spoil it so I won't give details.
If you can wade thru the first half, it's a decent book, but honestly, who wants to do that? If the story doesn't grab you by the first chapter and suck you in so you can't help but keep turning pages, why read it?
The story is clean, christian and completely moral.
Rachel knows the kind, charming assistant pastor of her church is attracted to her, but she also knows they could never have a real relationship. Painful secrets from her past won’t allow her to dream of a future with him. Yet, as she turns more of her life over to God, she begins to wonder if she can let go of old hurts and grasp new hope after all.
Waiting for Rachel does a good job of exploring the heartache of lost dreams and the reassurance that faith alone can bring. The main character experiences very real feelings of guilt and insecurity that make the story’s overarching message of hope especially poignant. I recommend this book to anyone who appreciates sweet romance and spiritual encouragement.
Another thing that seemed over done was the description of having coffee all the time. Maybe it's because I am not a coffee drinker but it felt over done.
I think it took a long time to learn Rachel's reason for holding off Damian and then it was quick for him to work through it. I think it would have been more effective to get to the reasons a.little sooner and then work through them. Maybe this was the author's first book.
I will read this author again.
