Words spoken in season is like a fresh rain.
Joe... Awesome man of GOD.
Great story. Loved Dina's stand and loved how GOD used Dina to be a huge blessing to her family in the face of great turmoil. Loved how GOD provided for her as she kept her heart in His hands. Only wished Joe's character would have been more open re: his love for Dina and the baby. It was obvious, but it still came as a great mystery when it didn't need to be. I greatly understood the feelings of the parents, however, I was more than hurt by Dina's mother's behavior, (though I understood her hurt and pain). When Dina's mother could have contacted Dina's father and inform him what was going on at the hospital, I was pained by Hannah's actions. I just thought the way she made her husband suffer was selfish. I also wished Mrs. Wyatt became more clearer of that which she so desperately needed. Good book.
I love all things Francine Rivers. This was my 9th book of hers to read, and I couldn't finish it fast enough. There were so many places it seemed false and not good in story telling...just to talk about how terrible abortion is. Bringing in a grandmother who had had one early in life...and giving her breast cancer??? I know that there are increased risk of breast cancer if one has an abortion, but one is also increased chance if she doesn't nurse a baby. I was annoyed, frustrated and completely turned off by this book. What I have loved about Rivers's books in the past...the lack of judging, the love of God.....was completely lacking in this book!
the narrator's voice was much too old sounding for these characters, if I didn't love Francine Rivers so much I would have stopped listening after the first chapter but I knew the story would be great!
This is one of the most valuable apps on our phones. My kids get car sick if they read. Books keep them quiet. No fighting!
Kudos to F. R. for tackling an extremely sensitive topic. I believe she did an excellent job of addressing the complexity on the subject. It is not an "easy read". I found a few of the narrator's character voices to be irritating. That said, I would still read it again.
I highly reccommend this book. Prolife or pro abortion, it will open your eyes and hopefully your heart as the author offers her interpretation of God's will on abortion. I love how she didn't condemn, and neither does God. He offers redemption. Beautiful story.
painful storyline, awesome speaker, brings light+grace in every turmoil.love Francine Rivers, always uplifting during all seasons♡♡♡♡♡
I love to read Francine Rivers books! There is so much more to them than just entertainment. The rich spiritual threads running through stimulate deep thinking and introspection into matters that have relevance for us today. So much Truth woven into fiction!
Overall a good read. I felt the abortion issue was pushed then shoved in our faces and it was secondary in the story. It was a wonderful story just too pushy.
