    Story

    When I purchased this book, I thought I would get a good murder mystery with Christian overtones. I was wrong. I did force myself to read the complete book but really it was far too long. The short murder plot was submerged under masses of padding in the form of "feelings", especially love, weeping, wailing and long, long, long conversations trying to convert the unbelieving sister who naturally also has a physical flaw. As a Christian, I am not afraid of Christian literature, but in this book the characters are too good to be true and so they are hardly human. In fact the only mistakes they seem to have made are those done before they became Christians. Despite the endless hours devoted to the feelings of the main characters, the bad ones are just regarded as greedy and evil and there is no effort spent trying to show these people also as human, albeit as inadequate ones. But all ends well, of course. What else would I have expected? I should have saved my money and bought another CS Lewis book.
