Yet another surprising story! I wasn't quite sure where the story was going when one of the characters talked about earning his way to heaven; I felt like Catherine could have expounded a little bit more on how he changed his thinking and finally accepted God's free gift of grace. It's a cute little story- has some humor and suspense to it and is well written. If you like Christian fiction, you will not be disappointed with this story.
In the village of Otley Yorkshire we visit the Bowden family again with the story of the youngest sister Clemma who is a widow and a victim of a fire that killed her husband and burned down their home. An enjoyable romance with a twist.
Quick read. I didn't have time for something long and this was just right for a relaxing afternoon. It was a fun story.
Easy to read. Read it in one day. :)
