Love. Love. Love. Finally a real romance without lusty sex. A good christian romance about God's love and grace. I adored that this book is realistic. People are not perfect. We make mistakes. And the Lord is the only one who can help us. I loved that this book isn't overly preachy either. It just plain ol' God's love with a nice touch of romance. I can't wait to read the next book.

I didn't want to gift this book to my niece until I had read it for myself. It is certainly very good and I'm impressed by it. I thought the author had portrayed the characters very realistically. The main character, Grace, has been basically brought up by her aunt, not in fact a relative but her mother's best friend. Grace's mother passed away when Grace was ten years old. The aunt persuaded Grace to not to marry Daniel Morgan because he is going into the ministry. Grace is heartbroken, but ...more

Immaturity led Grace to be apart from a man meant for her. It is Christian maturity to seek God when getting involved with someone you intend to spend your life with. Her recommitment to God increased her wisdom and showed her more about the man God meant for her. In other sense, the acts of Highfield is like the devil. His intention is to take away everything good God's given us and he employs the help of his agents to see to it. He lures us with every seemingly nice thing to get us where he ...more

This is a pretty good book. It's clean,has good characters, and a nice story. The writing quality isn't that amazing, but I'd take it over a romantic book filled with smut any day. It also doesn't ever get really cheesy or sappy like some Christian Romance books do so badly. The characters seem very real in their thoughts, feelings, and reactions which I like; but I would have liked to have had more development between the two main characters. The author does seem to be one who writes about what ...more

This book was really just a very poor imitation of Austen's "Persuasion". There was very little plot tension and there was so little actual interaction between the two love interests either in back story or present that it seems a bit of a stretch to even call it a romance...

This could have been so much better, but characters were one dimensional with little or no time to develop in any meaningful way which meant the "Love" between the two main protagonists seemed hollow.

Even as a Christian Nove

This set of books were about four brothers who were preachers and the woman who claimed their love. It is a Christian based story line...each had taken the vow of celibacy until marriage. And how miscommunication and true love are not always smooth sailing. But with prayer and putting your trust in God all will come in His time.
