The main character Nicole is a simple woman who likes to stay curled up at home with her pet fish or in the company of her grandmother. She is not the type of gal to go out looking for adventure, but when she was a young child a fire killed her mother in Japan. Her father wont tell her anything about her past and she wonders if she will ever know what her childhood was like. Then, unexpectedly, she starts communicating on the Internet to a man named Harrison, who claims to hold the key to the mystery of her past. One problem is that he lives in Japan, and Nicole is terrified of flying. Should she go to Japan and unlock the secrets of her past or stay at home where she is safe and sound?
Since this story has many strong ideals involving family, it is no surprise the supporting characters are mostly family members. The grandmother in this novel is a great encourager of Nicole, especially when Nicoles father is so distant. Surprisingly, the relationship I expected to be the main focus of the book was not mentioned very often and appeared quite weak. Nicoles relationship with Harrison was somewhat of a letdown. There were not many descriptions of how she felt about him, nor were there meaningful connections established between them.
Throughout the story Nicole has to remember that the Lord is always with her and that God has a plan for her. A scripture that supports the theme is Deuteronomy 31:6 : Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.
Nicole is a believable character. She has flaws, but she has strong Christian values and prays to God many times to help her through the situations she faces. Her personality is believable but not necessarily endearing to those reading the story. She tends to over complicate simple situations, which can get old when you feel like she is leading you around in circles throughout the story.
I enjoyed the ending. I thought it was cute, clever, and unexpected. I was not particularly engrossed by the book in the beginning and middle and I found it hard to stay focused on the plot, but the ending was charming. This book is directed toward women of all ages, but I feel that teenagers would not be able to get into it. Women of a mature age would be more apt to find this book to their taste. - Miss Casey Sargel, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
