SusanClover, SCAge: 55-65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Not Very ChristianOctober 27, 2016SusanClover, SCAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3This book had a good plot line and the writing was pretty good, but it was quite plodding. The author describes every single little detail about everything and it moved very slowly. It would have been better had the pace been a bit faster. Also, this is a Christian fiction and there were parts of it that I thought pushed the envelope some. The main male character seemed obsessed with getting the female character in bed, saying many times, "I want you. Let me love you." This made me uncomfortable. So I cannot really like it that much. I preservered and tried my best to thoroughly enjoy it, but I just couldn't. The author's writing was good enough that she could have left out those racy parts. I don't want to hear that from a Christian book. Also, there was not that much of God in the book, either.

The whole book leads up to a faith Blessed GOD given miracle - I won't tell you what it is but it will give you the Christian goosebumps if you will. It is about a bunch of rag tag misfits moving cross country in a wagon train as it were. They went through incredible circumstances ie, Indians, weather, and the country itself. The one thing I loved the most was that the author brought faith into the whole book - I mean how could you have gone through all that they did - especially the leader of the whole thing ( are you ready everyone) Lily - yes it was a women - and she held up her own - and she kept them safe - she had help from a rancher Thorpe - now - there must be a romance a bruin mustn't there be? well I can't say but you need to get the book to find out - and I can't say if everyone makes it or not. But each one of the characters are characters and you will enjoy each one of them. You know - you will feel like part of this family when you start reading - you cannot help yourself but put yourself in the wagon train - what kind of character are you? So, what is the miracle - I can't tell you that - but you can find out.....in the book. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
