This is the first book in the "Christian fiction" realm I've read. The writing was decent, the story pretty good in a page-turning, 'what happens next?' sense, but it's all wrapped just too awfully darned tidily for my I-was-an-English-major self: and then the love of Jesus saved them! I feel the passion and love of the author, but as a literary device I didn't find that it worked. I realize that literary criticism may not be the appropriate lens through which to view faith-based writing, but there you have it, that's the tool I can't help using.
