About the Book

Christian Fiction/Historical Romance

My Rating

My Review

I appreciated the simple manner in which Vogel expressed her message in the story. The writing was easy to follow, and the characters, quite likable.

Being a romance story, I knew the hero and heroine would definitely end up together, but I enjoyed following the story to see how it would unfold.

The romance was almost absent, and the suspense very light. And although this book is evidently Christian, its message was too simple for an adult fiction. I felt like some parts of it played out like a children’s storybook. That doesn’t mean that the writing wasn’t good—in fact, it was. But having an adult character tackle an issue with the approach of a child just wasn’t believable to me.

*Although I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that. My thanks to Waterbrook Multnomah for a free copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
