Could anyone POSSIBLY take this book seriously? Honestly, the characters are annoying and whiny, not to mention upsettingly unrealistic! I laughed through sections I'm sure were meant to be emotional, sensitive scenes. They certainly didn't come across as touching scenes! I hope to heaven that anyone who finds this book puts it right back where they found it, without wasting an hour on it like I did. Although, at least with fluff like this you haven't wasted a LOT of time. It only takes but a few minutes to skim through this book. Even so, it probably took less time to write it. There was obviously no effort put forth. Is there really a Janette Oke, or is that the name of a junior high writers club that has a connection to a publishing house? I almost hope it's the latter, because if it isn't, Janette Oke DEFINITELY missed her calling- maybe she should take up gardening, or painting and leave writing to true Christian romance novelists, like Lori Wick or Lauraine Snelling. I recommend these writers to anyone who is looking for a good book with substance. You definitely won't find that here!!

I didn't get very far reading this book. I didn't read about Kathleen's relationship with Donnigan because I was throughly disgusted with her character by Chapter 3. Kathleen is so timid it's revolting. She does the housework for her stepmother "Madame" for years, including bringing her breakfast on a tray. Never mind the fact that "Madame" has got two good legs and Kathleen limps. Never think about that, Katie, me darlin'! Never speak up for yourself! Just do like "Madame" says. Maybe she gets better as the book goes along, but I didn't really care. I'd have liked to see "Madame" get hers a little ways down the road. I guess if you've got that attitude, however, then Christian fiction is not for you.

That's about all I'll say- just don't bother. It'd be a waste for this to sit on your shelf. It's kind of like a trashy beach romance novel without the trashy part. So, to reiterate an earlier review, if that's your only criteria, you'll love it.
