My Rating: 3 and 1/2 stars because of slightly mature topics.
My Recommendation: 16 up for several reasons.
I know it doesn’t sound like much but it is the sweetest line ever!
Favorite Character: Isobel, I enjoyed reading about Isobel and how she learned how to trust more in God throughout the whole book.
My Verse for Isobel is 1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. (King James Verision.)
Least Favorite Character: Roric, who needs serious help!
My Thoughts: Only in the 1st chapter and it has sucked me in! I’m already intrigued and wonder where the book will go next! *back to reading*
*finished reading* This book is very attention holding! I was sucked in in the first sentence. Each of the descriptions were wonderful, I loved each of the characters and can’t wait to read more by the author! The book did touch on hard subjects like suicide, human-trafficking, abortion, kidnapping, and unwed pregnancies so, it is better for 16 up preferable 17 or even 18, since the subjects were mentioned though with care while still showing how hard, sad, and hurtful each of the subjects truthfully are, without glorifying the sin.
The end was slightly abrupt and a little too fast for me, but it won’t stop me from reading more from the author.
