I find that Christian fiction isn't nearly as preachy as one might expect. In fact, this is probably the preachiest one that I've read, and it's pretty tame. Not that I've read a whole lot of the genre, truth be told, but for $1.99 novel set in my preferred period, I couldn't bring myself to say no. It was an interesting look at debutante life, although never fear - it had the expected progression and ending of pretty much every other romance novel out there, period, Christian, or otherwise. It was also an interesting look at post-Civil War New York. I can't say that I've come across anything quite like it, so I appreciated it for novelty's sake. The writing was mild, but nothing extraordinary from a technical perspective...so no real complaints there either. Not a rousing endorsement I suppose, but if you like reading period romances, by all means - go for it.
