The most significant relationship of the book is the relentlessly loyal friendship between Friedrich and Matthias. Since the Inspirationists are a group dedicated to peace and God, they support the biblical values of faithfulness, sacrificial love, and self-control. Dobson constantly alludes to sacrificial love as exemplified by Christ and the importance of living sacrificially for our neighbors, supporting John 15:13, Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends (NIV). While Friedrich is away fighting, Amalie is forced to adapt to life in the new community and decipher Matthias strange behavior. She attempts not to let his cold manner affect her.
Detached from her parents and having only one friend to confide in, Amalie is focused on being a hard-working laborer in her kitchen and staying unresponsive to her true worries. It is hard to feel sympathetic toward her since her personality is almost unrealistically tough. Yet, her faithfulness is held in high regard by Matthias.
Just as the plot holds no real promise of adventure or excitement, the ending is peacefully predictable. Readers who enjoy the Love Finds You series or other novels of the same genre will enjoy it, but it is not a story that I related to with a modern womans emotions or experiences.
