This book is Epic! She hit it out of the park with this one. I loved it so much! It's everything I

First of all, I have read other Colleen Coble books, and I have never been disappointed. Yes, she writes in several genres of Christian fiction, but you can always be assured that you will read a book with squeaky clean content with a bit of an edge, and you always know that the Christian faith will play a significant role in the characters' development. While ...more
