This book was given to me by a friend who had been married for about 15 years as a wedding gift. I had no experience whatsoever, and it gave me a beautiful and thoughtful perspective on the subject, and some ideas that have kept my husband a very happy man! I purchased this book as a gift for another friend who will be getting married who also comes from a conservative home school background, where this topic tends to be hush-hush. This is an excellent book for young women who are engaged or just married, as it helps to form a positive perspective on intimacy before there has been damage in the relationship from a misunderstanding of God's intended purpose for this area of marriage. I highly recommend this book to women who are serious about maintaining a healthy marriage.
Note: One would be wise to proof-read this book if they are considering giving it to a teenage girl or someone who does not have marriage in view very soon; I don't think this is a good manual for teaching younger girls about 'the birds and the bees' UNLESS there is a discerning older woman to guide, edit, and teach. This is directed more toward women who are married or will be married soon.
This book is an amazing book and helped me learn my role as a wife early in our marriage. It's a no nonsense approach to God's true desire for us to understand that even though we are Christians, intimacy is to be enjoyed and respected in our marriages. Such a life changing book.
This book is a revelation and saved my marriage. It is worth every penny and changed the intimacy with my husband from 3x/month to 4-5x/week! We are happier than we've been in 16 years and we have two small children under the age of 5!
