Michele asked:

Why do people talk about this as being Christian fiction? I saw zero Christian elements at all, anywhere.

Reagan Excellent question. I thought it was infused with a love, a longing, and an ache of creation/creativity, to my eyes the embodiment of Christ, Creator and Lover of the world and everything in it. I need to reread it to give more specific examples, but I mostly remember Auralia's love for colors and bringing others joy, comfort, and fulfillment.
Joel Bradshaw Most likely because the author's other endeavors are largely in the Christian sphere - he writes for Christianity Today and Image, and works for Seattle Pacific University. His own movie review site comes from a Christian background, and the first book won a couple of Christy Awards, which are for Christian Fiction.

All that being said, Overstreet himself doesn't categorize it as Christian Fiction, but that hasn't kept others from doing so.
