I've been putting off writing my review on this book because I'm not sure what to say. Generally, I don't especially like Christian fiction. This book is an example of why I don't like it. The story felt contrived and forced, like the author tried to imagine everything that could possibly go wrong and made it happen. I just kept feeling frustrated that the characters weren't using common sense to prevent these horrible things from happening. But worse was that I felt like the author was trying to make a political statement that I was neither going to appreciate nor agree with. In the end though, she surprised me and came to a conclusion that was better than I had given her credit for. So I ended up giving it 3 stars because the author showed a broader sense of tolerance than I thought she would. If you like Christian fiction, you will probably like this book because it's pretty much the epitome of Christian fiction. If you're not a Christian fiction fan, I would steer clear of this one...

Shannon Well, I won't be reading THIS! :-)

Davina Bell I thought it was just me. I am also not a fan of Christian fiction for the same reasons. I feel the story has to be forced into a pretty little package and that makes it hard to relate to because that is not life! I like the way your review stated it!!! I was reading and the story troubled me for this reason!!! Thanks for your review!!!

Haley I totally agree.

Rachael Yes. I agree 100%

Anne Thank you for your review. I am a Christian who generally has a hard time with most Christian fiction for the very reasons you stated.
