Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.
A delightful surprise!!! I picked this book during one of the $4.95 deals and did not know what to expect. I loved it! This is an inspirational romance and mystery. It is actually two stories about two different women (one from 1912 and one from today). The story goes back and forth between the two stories, eventurally connecting these two women. I will definitely look for more books from this author. Jennifer
This is an excellent, well-written story of a 33 year old trying desperately to embrace "singleness" (oh, how I remember those days!) Kate is trying to be patient and accept God's timeline and plan for her life. I felt like I could so relate to her "operation perfect faith" where she tries to make time for God each day but so often got caught up in work, life . . . that the quiet time made it to the bottom of the "to-do"list.
The other big part of this book was on self improvement. I am a big fan of doing the most with what you have, so I enjoyed the part about her makeover. However, this book shows how easy it is to get caught up in outward appearances and "self-improvements". Once again, I could totally relate to the desire to fix all those imperfections we see in the mirror. This book was enjoyable and insightful. Highly recommend. Jennifer
This is an amazing, moving story that takes place during the Roman Empire, after the death of Jesus. Although fiction, the author gives a very interesting and insightful glimpse into this famous era of history. This is a Christian novel, but do not think this is a light read. There is violence, audultery, deceit and greed throughout the story. Francine Rivers does not sugar coat anything. She tells it like it is. I loved it!
