Additional Comments:

  • I’m used to these sorts of stories being Christian, so the sex scenes was a bit of a surprise. I don’t usually read the blurbs to books, but it’s nice to see that it mentions some language and sensual love scenes. Personally, it seems out of place in the genre. Closed door you know they’re doing it just fits better.
  • There’s quite a bit of drama for a relatively short book.
  • Part made me cry. I suppose that’s a triumph for the story.
  • Parts meandered to nowhere. Brant wasn’t even remotely tempted with the other possible love interest. That would have added some tension and competition for Abby.
  • The kid’s anger seemed disproportionate and misplaced, but I guess nobody ever accused kids of being completely rational beings.
  • Character were pretty stereotypical, but I feel like that is what’s expected for the genre. The jealous girl one didn’t go far. The school teacher is infinitely patient and finds her way as the wife. The guy is ridiculously handsome. The little kids are cute. Older kiddos a handful- resentful and sullen.
  • There was one twist that caught me by surprise.


I’m probably going to stick with the Christian Fiction versions of such tales from now on, but it was interesting to hear this.
