Read in May, 2009

I did not know this was Christian-Fiction when I picked it up and wasn't sure what to expect since I never read a book in this genre before.

This story is about abuse and forgiveness. It seemed the authors were too busy trying to share the message of God that they didn't put too much effort into the storyline itself. I was looking for a heartwarming story and this was not it. It was depressing and dry not to mention poorly written.

I liked the characters and think the story could have been much better if they focused more on the storyline and less on the message.
