I love Robin Gunn's storytelling! I just wish I had known about her when I was a teen! it's so nice to show God's alternative to the worldly dating scene that is out there. Even as an adult, I'm learning and being strengthened in ny single walk with The Lord through these books.
I started reading the Christy Miller series when I was 12. Now as an adult I still like to go back and read the College years and Katie's series. These were some of the books I grew up on. They are funny, sweet, romantic, heartfelt, and Godly.
In short, they are real.
I read an earlier review which basically said these books were not at all Christian. And since these books have been my companions for a good decade, I felt the need to defend them.
So just to clarify a few things.
These books ARE Christian, and HAVE GOD IN THEM. And God just may touch you through reading them.
Are the characters like us completely? Obviously not. Are they perfect? No way! That's how we relate to them! They mess up and make huge mistakes and have some major attitude problems. They are "human." Just like us! :) But despite it all, they love God and do their humanly best to follow Him. And that's why these books are so good. It's us.
I love how the characters in this book are so real. They do relate to people in my life. I have a crazy Katie, a gentle Tracy, and a free-spirited Sierra. These are such great Christian books. Mrs. Gunn I think you did a fantastic job!! oh yeah, I love the new Katie Weldon book
Lol. these books crack me up sooooo much. Firstly, Christy, Todd, Katie, Doug, Tracy, Rick. All fake people!!!!Some of the reviews i read really make me sad. these are romance books with a little bit of Christianity thrown in. My friend who is a real and true atheist recognizes how un-christ like Christy and Todd are. We both agree that the best character is Katie because she is real. If the author did not make Christy a "christain" she would be just like Katie desperate and lonely. this book is well written, but should not be under the title of Christian book.
