    This is the first book I have read by Chris Fabry. His writing style is easy and puts you immediately into the setting as if you actually live there, too. The structure of his novel is similar to others books that have proven effective, such as "The Help" ( by Kathryn Stockard), where the story is told in the first person by the key characters. Each chapter is one of these characters speaking and is an enjoyable way to read as opposed to a third person's narrative.

    That being said, I stuggle with the play of emotions the author puts on the reader. I understand this book has received great reviews- the story line is weaved with various threads and it all comes together nicely in the end, but it is all emotional. The story is basically one man's sacrifical devotion and protection of the woman he loves but the end does not justify the means. Peeling away the noble, sacrifical, and love-driven act of this man we have that he needed to lie in order to demonstrate his love.

    Good literature should elevate and edify me, especially Christian literature. This book does neither for me. It makes me wonder how far we have come from the simple, fundamental truth that God cannot bless a lie. I wish Fabry would have written a story where the truth was revealed at the onset and yet still had his main character take the girl's just punishment as an act of love.

    This plot reminds me of a beautifully colored tapestry. Chapters are written in the voices of the different characters, allowing the reader a glimpse. This is one of those novels that by the time the last page has been turned, I find myself a bit frustrated that I had no more to read.

    I recommend this one! Discussion questions are included.

    As I was reading the book, I thought I had it all figured out...but the ending is nothing that I expected!! I loved the interesting spin that it took. I gave this to two other friends to read after me, and we all experienced the same thing---hang in there with it till the VERY END!!

    I don't enjoy reading books that I have all figured out by the middle of the book. Loved this book because the author gives you information and you "think" you have it figured out. Then the ending is totally unexpected!! The book was a most enjoyable read for me.

    I absolutely LOVED this book! There are so many twists and turns. Once I got started I couldn't put it down. The characters were so compelling and captured my heart and the story kept me glued to the book until the end! I highly recommend this book!
