Jessie is a big believer in love, but although she's spent her whole life fantasizing about what her marriage proposal would be like, reality has yet to match her dreams - until one day God shows up and offers to write Jessie's love story for her. There's just one catch: she must surrender all control. When she does, Jessie discovers that divine things can happen when we let go.

I really enjoyed this book. I think so many times we are looking for our own soulmates instead of letting God Write our love Story. I can not wait until they make this into a movie next year. This book was very funny and entertaining.
I loved this book. It was funny. There were some theological issues I didn't agree with but all in all I recommend this book. It made me laugh out loud and shed a few tears. Looking for other books by this writer.
This is by far one of the best books ever!!! Every single person who wishes to marry should read or listen to this book. This book really teaches you to wait on God.
I thought this was a great story. As a single women in her thirties I could relate to the sentiments of the main character Jess Stone. I thought this story did a great job in showing single women how God has our best interests at heart. I also like how it depicted the honest struggle of true surrender to God (the purple pen) as well as the rewards (Jonathan). I listen to the story in one day. :-)
The sample was hilarious! There were other laugh-out-loud moments, but the sample made me think the whole thing was going to be equally funny. The concept is interesting. Overall, I'd recommend saving the credit and getting a library copy.
I very much enjoyed the story. The main character was perfectly imperfect. The narrator's voice, however, did not match. Jesse's age needed the voice of a mature woman but this narrator sounded as if she was reading the top story of the evening news. A little too canned. However, the story took over and I was able to overlook it. I enjoyed the fun fiction with a "holy" twist. I categorize it as "Devine Comedy" ;)
Wasn't sure about this book, but after I made my way through the second chapter I was hooked. I love the back and forth between Jess and "God".
The message is awesome, and Jess' thoughts are so realistic.
I found this novel very revealing to the heart of God and the love and dreams He has for us. Anyone who desires to know how much God loves us should read this book....especially if you're getting frustrated waiting for your husband.
I will definitely listen to it again.
No other book really
No, this was my first.
God, because with the chaos of every day life it is so easy to forget to spend time with Him.
The book, was not predictable and the main character was so funny. It was a great reminder of the fact that we may have plans but God directs our steps, and also that His plan for us is greater than the plans we have for ourselves. It has reminded me to make plans in pencil but give God the eraser.
