Emilie Getz and Jonas Fielding are as different as two peopleof the same age, with the same faith, living in the same charming Pennsylvania towncould be.
She loves history; he loves new ideas. She sticks to the rules; he likes to break them. Shes into saving relics; hes into saving souls. The one trait they share is a penchant for controlling every aspect of their lives, including their stubborn hearts.
When Emilies search for an archaeological treasure leads her to the one piece of land she cant 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.

lindaStarkville, MSAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful bookJanuary 18, 2012lindaStarkville, MSAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This 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.

Jody4 Stars Out Of 5June 4, 2008JodyLiz Curtis Higgs is an excellent writer, but this wasn't my favorite book of hers. It was good, though and worth reading. The main characters didn't seem to have any chemistry at first and it was a little unbelievable (for me)that they could so drastically change. I'm still glad I read it. I enjoyed her book "Mixed Signals" a lot! I think that's why my expectations were so high for this book.
