I didn't realize that Courage of Fear was a faith oriented book. The last few years of my life, I haven't really had the best relationship with God. I lost my father five years ago and I'm still struggling to deal with the fact that he's gone. I don't understand why and yes, I will admit that I blame him (God)for my loss. Some say that's ridiculous, but I believe what I believe. One thing I did appreciate was even though faith was predominant in the book, it wasn't shoved down your throat.

That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed the story. The characters were real and honest. I really liked how the story changed from past to present and back again and even though I was confused at the beginning of the book, it was nice to see how everything slowly came together. A rather bittersweet ending, but honestly - I liked that, simply because life doesn't always have a happy ending. Sometimes it will break you... but that's no reason to stop living it.
