mainly read romances and books for a book club that take me all over the map.
This is a great series of inspirational novellas and I really enjoyed the creative story line of this one.
Yes, I like Christian inspirational romances but this book and all the books in this a Year of Wedding Novellas that started in December with a Bride in December are touting this unrealistic idea that God has "picked out the one" and you just need to "pray" and you will somehow magically know.
Newsflash, that is not true and I do not like these myths being perpetuated in these books/
It was enjoyable as it,
Good series but I think it contributes to an unrealistic fantasy of finding the "one" that "God Picked out for Me" that will unfortunately make people miss reality and discovering the point that you become the "right" one and another "right" one whom is emotionally and mentally healthy and you get together and have a healthy marriage. It is two people who want to be together that come together by choice not because "God Made me do it" or because you "need" to but because you are whole in Christ and you love and want to be with this person. I hope people can get that difference and just enjoy the romantic parts of the story and see the virtue and value in being honest with each other that I think the author is trying to convey in this romantic scenario and working past the differences.
It is about the marriage not the fancy wedding that is over in 3 hours and then you look at the guy and go what was I thinking.
