Read in September, 2008
I wasn't very impressed with the author's ability to keep things clear at the beginning of the story. There are several people/families that the story is switching back and forth between. There wasn't enough lead up or information on the characters initially. I kept wondering who was who.
After I got past that, I enjoyed the overall story. A romance that highlights the importance communication plays in relationships. Nice reminder about how easy it can be to misunderstand, and how we need to keep an open mind and not jump to conclusions. Oh, and also that one should be very weary about the consumption of alcohol!
The author is a Christian writer (which I didn't realize when I picked up the book). Sometimes the character's search for the truth in religion didn't seem to flow, but it was nice to have a clean story.
