Don Searle's second novel is light and entertaining LDS fiction. It has a more or less standard plot line - less-active LDS man meets active LDS woman (why isn't it ever reversed?). She helps him return to activity, with the help of a kind and inspired Bishop who also happens to be the local LEO. Man and woman fall in love. After some "whitewater rapids" in their budding relationship, they overcome hurt feelings and misunderstandings and presumably live happily ever after. Some other secondary characters and plot lines are present also - sort of a boy and girl version of the man and woman. It gets a little strained toward the end - the female protagonist takes offense in a way that seems out of character for her given the sort of character development set-up earlier in the book. Nonetheless, Searle has a comfortable and relaxed writing style, and it makes for an undemanding read - good for a cold Sunday evening with some hot cocoa and a fire in the fireplace.
