Divine was a good book. Well written and captivating. I appreciated that the author did NOT make it graphic in scenes that could have easily been. The topic was horrific enough without having it detailed. I enjoyed it, until the last couple of chapters. It fell flat. I am a Christian and I believe in Christ, but I think the author took the idea of following Jesus a bit too far. She made Mary and Nigel out to be a nun and a priest. They got to a point where the only thing they wanted do was follow Christ and do His work, to the exclusion of all else. I believe that He wants us to follow Him and do His work, but that He also wants us to LIVE. Anyway, the ending was disappointing. I will read another of Karen Kingsbury's novels, because it was a captivating story and well written.

Beth I've never read this novel, but I appreciated this statement from your review: "I believe that He wants us to follow Him and do His work, but that He also wants us to LIVE."

Thanks :)
