it was amazing
Read from October 01 to 03, 2011

This was a beautifully written story of faith and love. The author did a great job with the characters, each having such a profound voice of their own. From the selfless, beautiful heart of Grace to the misguided, grief stricken preacher and father, Luther, Ziedel made you understand every thought and emotion these characters were going through.

The pain that Otto carried all through the years was sad, but in the end, it was Grace who made him realize he had done no wrong. Otto is a wonderful example of a stand-up man who provides for his family, doesn't treat his wife as less than, rather more and equal as it should be. He looked after his brother all these years, showing his true heart and humiliation of the accident that changed Henry so long ago. The love of Henry was truly beautiful. His adoration for Grace and Miriam was evident in every turn.

Miriam was lucky to have a sister like Grace to take her on as her own and raise her right. The story of Naamah was inspiring, and I loved how it signifies the true strength of women. All in all, I devoured this novel in two days, it was that good. I definitely recommend this book.
