      This review was written for The Face of the Earth Large Print.
      Oh my goodness! This novel was absolutely compelling and one that I could not set down. Even though it was fiction, I felt myself following the story and waiting for leads as breathlessly as the characters in this book.

      I had this book on my shelf for a couple of years and finally worked up the courage to read it. I have enjoyed other stories written by this author, but was not sure if I could handle this very grave subject matter. I'm glad I waited and read it when I was really in the right place to give it all of my focus. It was an amazing story, written very skillfully. I highly recommend it.

      Easily the Perfect Book

      When I call this the "perfect" book, I am not joking. This is a book that kept my entire attention from the very beginning until the end, and not many books can do that. This has something in it for everyone: mystery, romance, contemporary concerns, and true faith. This is a book that is clean and well-written.

      In light of current media stories where people go missing far too often, this was a smart topic to cover in this book. The author kept me guessing almost until the very end. At one point, I said to myself that she could steer the book at least fifty different ways. I had to force myself to stop and eat lunch and do other things that were necessary. I actually forgot that this was a fiction book.

      In addition to this, there is a very inconvenient romance, and I was greatly touched and conflicted as I read about it. I was so glad that those involved turned to the Lord. While the gospel message is not expressly stated in the book, it is clear that a foundation based on a relationship with God is absolutely key.

      I can't recommend this book highly enough. It should be a joy for anyone who enjoys mysteries and romances.

      I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

      Disappointed, and bothered

      I did not like this book. I have read several books by Mrs. Raney. I have enjoyed all the other books I have read. I didn't like this one. I did a lot of skimming after about 40 pages. It bothered me that Shelly spent so much time with Mitch. Yes, I can see this happening for the first day or so. But, not afterwards. I am a single parent. I am extremely careful about how I interact with married men. I don't have phone conversations back and forth. I don't send e-mails back and forth. I don't go with them in a car, unless it's an emergency. Then, it's a one-time thing. I am extremely cautious, because it's what my church preaches. I am never going to be a temptation to another man's marriage. I'm never going to put myself in a position where I can't ask God's blessing on my life.

      Shelly spent too much alone time with Mitch - if she ever wanted to have a relationship with him later on down the road. How would she trust him - later on?

      I did not like this book.

      Deb Raney isn't afraid to plumb the depths of relationships. The Face of the Earth is more than a good story. More than a good read, it's an emotional experience. Novel Rocket and I give it a very high recommendation.

      Another Great Read about a Tough Topic

      I finished reading The Face of the Earth by Deborah Raney about two weeks ago. I became a fan of hers probably five to seven years ago. Every time she has a new book or series out, I can't wait to read it because I know I will fall in love all over again with her characters and the situations they find themselves in. I absolutely loved this story from beginning to end_in fact, I can't stop thinking about Mitch and Jill and Shelley. While I was reading I couldn't decide which ending I would be happier with as there were definitely two possibilities. This book moved me to tears as I considered the sadness and happiness that each ending would give. I definitely was living the story, not just reading about someone else's life.

      I love how Ms. Raney writes about realistic situations for modern day America. I love how she weaves spiritual elements throughout the book, not hitting anyone over the head but a quiet faith, the type I live out on a daily basis. She shows when there is a time to take a stand morally and also a time to just quietly go about living without worrying about others opinions. I loved the commentary in the back of the book too, where she described a little bit about the background behind the story. It made the story itself, which was incredible, have even more impact on a spiritual level.

      I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great romance, loves reading about present day situations, and who enjoy growing a little more in their spiritual walk. I can't wait to read the next book that Ms. Raney chooses to write. Hope we don't have to wait too long.
