I received a copy of this book for free through Goodreads first reads.

As a believer and Christian myself I so wanted to love this book. Truthfully I did love the concept of the story. I loved the idea behind it and the teachings it sought for the reader to pick up.

I received a copy of this book from a goodreads giveaway.

The Crimson Purpose : The Calling of Casey Evand is an excellent read for anyone who wants a good, clean, thought-provoking read. I have this book in my classroom as a free read on my personal bookshelf, my female students enjoy it immensely. Lots of well-rounded characters any reader can identify with - hope there is a follow up book, seems like a great series piece.

I may be a little biased (: but I think it's a great read for women of dating age and beyond! It's a work of faith-based fiction, it's contemporary, and it's realistic.
