Wow, I loved this book. It had lots of suspense, heart, and redemption all rolled into one book. I look forward to reading the rest of the series. This was the first time I have read any of Nancy Mehl’s books. I look forward to reading more of her books.
My only problem with this book was with Lizzie’s parents and their speech. It just seemed so unnatural. It drove me crazy. It felt like it just wasn’t normal and it made the parents seem unreal. I had a hard time when they entered in throughout the book. Other than that I could hardly put the book down! Thanks for a wonderful story that was different from other Christian authors out there.You can buy this book here.
