This is one of those fluff stories I was speaking of in my last review. This is a book that I pick up when i am in that particular room. I can put down easily and get back into the story with equal ease. Very simplistic writing so far, and I am with the other that reviewed this that stated she only finished it due to Esthers diary writings.

I REALLY enjoyed this book and related to more then just one character which is rare for me. <3

AAAAh. I hate books that do this! The author reaches the climax of a very exciting story, its the life and death part and death is cheated and the person is rescued and that's the end. There is no resolution. Bla. I hate that. Its like she forgot to write the last chapter. A formula story, but very well done and so engaging that you read very quickly. Nothing offensive. So 4 stars for all of that. Just a terrible way to end.
The past is interwoven using flashbacks and letters. I skip some of the religious text to get to the action but the story still has a very good message of the ability of Christ to transform lives for good.

Wonderful book I couldn't put down. Enjoyed how the author weaved the past into the book through the character reading a diary.
One of the best books read! So much spiritual meaning and good messages to reflect on and incorporate into life. Great!!!
felt the characters weren't captivating...
