This is the first Janette Oke book I've ever read that's disappointed me. Perhaps Davis Bunn is the problem. As I read the story I just wanted it to end.
The premise of two grown men becoming obsessed with a woman they hardly glanced was unbelievable. The connection between the Bible and fictional characters was flimsy.
Sad, but true
With ethics crumbling around us, the story shows that believers can still live for God.
I identified with Eunice and what she was going through.
Modern church in crisis
I got this book because I had enjoyed three historical Christian books by Francine Rivers. So when this book took place 'now' I was surprised. But then I started reading and I was really amazed because I've lived through this sort of thing twice in the last thirty years in my small town church. Francine put into words many things that I had experienced. I especially appreciated her message of hope.
