Four out of Five Stars. Highly recommended Romantic Women’s Fiction
If you like romances where opposites attract this is the book for you. What a tapestry of conflict and connection this book is. The ways in which Stone and Abigail turn out to be connected are stunning. It’s like that bedraggled bush in her father’s greenhouse. Layer by layer, as these two people intertwine on the outside, their pasts and inner lives open up like that mysterious plant. Don’t skip over the bush or the chats or the other clues that this book is deep and rich with threads of wonderful, surprising detail. sniff the air and find something extraordinary. This is a sweet incense offering to God.
The book also has sage and sweet and tough advice on how to deal with abuse and all kinds of relationships. It’s a strong metaphor of how in all walks of life humans need to listen to counsel and rely on others. In ourselves we make wrong decisions. When we get isolated we lose hope or lash out.
God is there, however, waiting for us to realize we can’t do any of this alone. Those who want to isolate themselves or control others have to step toward the light or they will never leave the darkness behind.
I received this book in exchange for my unbiased review.
