Publisher's Description

Opposites attract? Maybe not.

Emilie Getz and Jonas Fielding are as different as two people—of the same age, with the same faith, living in the same charming Pennsylvania town—could be.

She loves history; he loves new ideas. She sticks to the rules; he likes to break them. She’s into saving relics; he’s into saving souls. The one trait they share is a penchant for controlling every aspect of their lives, including their stubborn hearts.

When Emilie’s search for an archaeological treasure leads her to the one piece of land she can’t have (thanks to Jonas), they choose opposing sides in an engaging battle of wits. Emilie, a no-nonsense sort of woman, is determined to have her way. But Jonas is on a mission as well: He wants to hear Emilie laugh. Often.

Story Behind the Book

Though she has traveled the world, Liz Curtis Higgs is a small-town girl at heart. In Bookends, Liz invites readers to visit a place she knows well: her hometown of Lititz, nestled in the rolling hills of historic Lancaster County , Pennsylvania . Fond memories of her childhood years in the Moravian church—one of the oldest of the Protestant denominations—and her love for Lititz history and traditions serve as a solid underpinning for this lively contemporary tale. Like many couples, Emilie and Jonas resemble human bookends—opposites in every way—until Emilie’s joy-filled spiritual awakening turns their stubborn hearts in the same happy direction.

    This ranks with some of my favorite books. I had the book format, not the ebook. I couldn't stop reading, but I didn't want it to end.

    The only downside was that the couple got a bit heavy with their kissing. I think if they were a real couple, things could have gotten out of hand. It wasn't a good example of how an unmarried, Christian, couple should behave. There wasn't any disappointing behavior beyond all of the kisses, however. This was the only reason I gave it a 4 on "meets expectations."

    After reading Bookends, I knew that most other books would be a disappointment. Few could measure up.

    The characters in the book are a delight except for Nate. He provided a balance to show how different children of the same family can turn out. He showed the struggles of one without a Savior.

    The Spiritual teaching was solid and illustrated the differences between Christians and those who are religious and following traditions and rituals. I think there was a lot there to cause most of us to stop and look at our own hearts.

    The highpoint of the book was the humor. It helped keep the characters from taking themselves too seriously and showed how we can get so wrapped up in our ideas of fun that we forget not everyone has the same "likes." Of course, that can apply to books, as well, but I can't imagine anyone not enjoying Bookends--even if it doesn't make it to their favorites list.
