If you can get through the first 4-5 chapters you will be drawn into this book. The beginning is a little too religious for my taste and seems melodramatic.

Like many of the religious fiction that's free on Amazon, this author places her heroine in extraordinary circumstances. Astrid is training to be a doctor and goes through all of the gnashing anbd wailing of whether she can deal with moving away from home for 6 months for her medical training. While the characters, even Astrid, are engaging, her naivite just gets to be too much as we watch her make a bad life-chainging choice because she does not know herself.

The author does a good service by stoppig in the midst of a mjor plot point so that you will want to go on to the next title in the series.
