jsrn185 Stars Out Of 5Unconditional loveJune 12, 2016jsrn18Quality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Amazing story with so many layers! At first it appears as if it will be just another romance story but this one is different. Sam has been dealt so many hardships that she has lost hope and trust in everyone and the devil uses this to his advantage to make her think she isn't worthy and to put hateful messages into to her subconscious. Sam has buried many hurts in her life and kept them locked away in order to not feel anything. When she returns to her childhood home she is forced to come to terms with these internalized struggles and face the truth no matter how much hurt it creates. Such a relatable story!
Cookie703Marksville,LAAge: Under 18Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5I realized how much Jesus loves me...January 21, 2012Cookie703Marksville,LAAge: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5After reading The Convenient Groom by Denise I KNEW I had to read more of her books. So I randomly picked one and Surrender Bay was it. And even today I'm happy about that choice. Why? Well because Sam-the main character-messed up SO much. I mean, honestly, I cringed at some of the things she did to Landon-the guy who is modeling as Jesus. She couldn't have hurt him more if she...well she did. And even though she hurt him, lied to him, though she rejected even the thought of him, he loved her still.
He loved her still.
We rejected Jesus. We hurt him. I know I did. But the amazing part of it all is he went on the cross, wore the crown of thorns, got whipped to the point of probably not even being able to think straight but he still loved us. He still loves us. Isn't that just amazing? It so is.
And this book made me realize how amazing...and it made me realize how much Jesus loved me. How much he still does...
