My Review:
This book was somewhat enjoyable. I think I liked some of the supporting characters better than the main ones which was a little strange to me. The really strange part was when Seth had past away and Jane hadn't quite got the news about his death yet. And there was a vision or dream if you will where he came to her bedside. I don't want to give it away. But I didn't quite get it. I think I enjoyed Truman and Bess the most. Truman is a very ornery old man and Bess is a sassy old lady. The back and forth between the two really kind of woke me up. It was a nice ending to a semi good book. I did love that in the end God seen to it that Jane had a happy ending. The author did an excellent job of portraying the love felt between Jane and Jon Paul.


This book was given to me for free for my honest review through Bethany House Publishers.
