This book at first looked interesting, a girl with my same name, aspiring writer
(my grandmother thought writing was my calling) so I figured I would enjoy reading it. Maybe it would inspire me. But... I'm sorry to say, I was disappointed. I didn't even read the whole book, because after reading a few chapters, my honest opinion was that there were many unnecessary things included in this "Christian" fiction. Not the kind of things that edify a Christian, or the kind of things I believe as a Christian we should "think on".
Yes, life at times, even for us as Christians can get tough, decisions can be hard, we make mistakes, and sometimes the fine line between black and white is a little hard to discover. In spite of that, I have read many good Christian novels that deal with real life issues, struggles, and reality, but edify at the same time. I believe a Christian novel should be distinctly different from other novels.
I would definitely suggest that you read various reviews before making a decision about reading this book. I personally wouldn't recommend this book.
*I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers for the purpose of my review. And I want to say that although this book was not appealing to my taste in literature, I have ready many books from Bethany House that I have thoroughly enjoyed.*
