Product Description

For years, Amber traipsed around the Northwest avoiding the skeletons in her closet. Job-hopping every few weeks, she refused to let anyone get close to her as she slowly made her way east. As winter plants itself firmly across the Rockies, she decides to take a chance on a job at a logging company with a family different from any she's ever known before. Watching the family interact creates more questions than answers for Amber. Feeling like she's entered the happily-ever-after written at the end of fairytales, she watches for cracks in the facade. Surely as the days pass, the play-acting will cease and the real family will emerge. Or could she be wrong? Could they truly be genuine? Could Faye understand the trauma from her past or Peter think of her as more than just the winter office help? Could this family really hold the key to what she's seeking?

    This review was written for Crossing Values - eBook.
    After years of wandering, Amber Griffin happens upon the little town of Crossing, Oregon and decides to look for a job and a place to stay. She finds herself living and working in the home of Frank and Faye Yager, but she can't believe this Walton-type family is for real.

    When she realizes the authenticity of the Yager family and their firm faith in God, she gradually begins to trust them—even to love them, but as Amber's story unravels, so does her life. Someone is looking for her. What do they want and are they going to take from her the best thing that's happened to her in sixteen years?

    Author Carrie Daws places her characters in realistic small town America. The setting supports and warms the story. The characters are clearly defined. The plot moves along steadily, with a few nice twists and relational interests to increase suspense.

    But for me, the best parts of the story are the positive traits of the characters, the confirmation that there are still functional families in this world, good people who really care about others, even strangers, but that their goodness comes not from themselves but from the forgiving God who sustains them.

    I can't say enough about how wonderful this book is, I knew in jut the first chapter I was going to enjoy this book. I felt so much comfort, love and understanding of God. I felt a part of the family and was happy when they were happy and sad when they were. I've lived in most of the places in the book so it was wonderful to read a book and know just where Carrie was talking about. I came from a family of loggers and felt like it was old home week reading about it. I can't wait to get into the next book "Ryan's Crossing".

    Carrie, your writing style is so warm and comforting. Thank you for writing these books. I needed the love and comfort

    Crossing Values brought me right in & never let go. I loved the characters, they felt like friends, going through tough times & joys with some twists, turns & uncertainty. A story of learning to trust & forgive written wonderfully & believably. I was sad to come to the end until realizing I the second book in the series, Ryan's Crossing, was waiting for me to continue with these lovable characters. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I'm so glad because it introduced me to Carrie Daws whom I have happily added to my list of favorite Christian authors!

    This was a short yet fulfilling story. I really enjoyed meeting this family and how they took in Amber and loved on her even though they had their own lives. The romance between Amber and Peter was slow building but beautiful by the end. There was some issues both had to work through, and they were not easy ones. The hurt that Amber carried with her made me hurt for her. I look forward to Ryan's Crossing and meeting up with this family again.

    I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

    It is so wonderful to read a good, clean book that makes you look at your own life, and consider how you stand on the issue or issues written about. Amber has trouble with trust, in God, in people and in life. Where do you stand with the trust issue? This very well written story uses some suspense, lots of learning and a little romance to bring trust about in Amber's life. It certainly reminded me of how important it is to trust the Lord in everything.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Carrie Daws
Located in: Raeford, NC
Submitted: December 16, 2011

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Me? A writer? That's what I would have said before God pushed the issue. I just liked to write devotions and post them online for women to read. But then God introduced me to the Christian Writer's Guild and I discovered that writing fiction wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. With the help of an encouraging mentor and friends with a voracious fiction appetite, Crossing Values was completed, shortly followed by it's sequel, Ryan's Crossing (coming soon!). Along the way, my husband medically retired from the United States Air Force. After years of constant moving, we settled in central North Carolina with our three children. Besides writing novels, I stay busy with homeschooling, working part time, and volunteering within two military ministries.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I strive to write clean fiction. I love happily-ever-after stories that gently advocate Biblical values and I believe in advocating healing from past hurts and families uniting in difficult circumstances. More than anything, I want the hope of Christ to permeate each of my books. With Crossing Values, I wondered what would happen if a woman running from love was surrounded by unconditional, no-strings-attached love.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  One of my favorite lines from the novel is this: "God made you for more than running from your past." I want people to understand that God doesn't want us to just cope. He offers healing. He doesn't want us to merely survive. He longs for us to thrive.
