2 Stars Out Of 5
May 21, 2013
I don't like to write negative reviews, but sometimes it can't be helped.
The main problem I had with the book was the use of the name of a real, living person who became well known only through some terrible times she went through. Even though the media has never left her name out of any story about her and her sad predicament, I don't think any novelist, especially a Christian one, should add to that number. The story here wasn't at all furthered by referring to her. It was almost in a frivolous way.
Also, the characters were undeveloped and shallow. The love of one character for another was lacking. Brenda was flighty. Her friend Jill seemed uncaring and Marge's character changed her allegiance quickly.
The brief Spiritual contribution was unconvincing to me and showed little growth.
This wasn't the worst book I've read, but it was a disappointment.
