Blog Tour of Love Lifted Me by Faith Blum!

About the book:

Elaheh’s brothers are lazy and controlling …

When Elaheh’s parents die, she is devastated, especially when her brothers seem to not care at all. They slowly make her help them more and more in the vineyard until she is finally forced to do all of the work plus keeping the house clean and food ready.

When Prince Solomon comes to town to hear from the people, Elaheh talks to him to see if there is anything they can do. Solomon feels bad for Elaheh and searches for weeks to find something, but can’t. So he comes up with a plan.

Will Solomon be able to rescue Elaheh from her lazy brothers? Will Elaheh survive all the work she is forced to do? Can true love come to a humble foreigner like Elaheh?

Inspired by Cinderella and Song of Solomon

My review:

I enjoyed the other books in this series, The Tales of The East, but this one? It felt like it was lacking in development, in the writing, the characters, and somewhat in the plot, I still liked it though I wonder if the author was rushing since she was due to have a baby very soon and wanted to have her book wrapped up and ready to be published on time.

I liked the story, it was just somewhat weak, lacking the conviction (yes, conviction.) of her former books. The story felt tired, and like it needed more work.

I liked the lesson in Love Lifted Me. It is a sweet, lovable, even cute book, it just needed more polishing even for an advanced reader copy as I was given for my review.

The stories following the children of King David are intriguing, interesting, and informative without being boring, this one was the same it only lacked a feeling of finesse.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
