So! why did I say I enjoyed this book ‘somewhat’? a few things. The pace of the plot was a bit too slow for my tastes. The characters are great and all, but if the plot is going nowhere, or it’s going at a snail’s pace well, there’s only so much the characters can do to capture and maintain your attention.
Then come the ‘convenient’ bits. Not going to go into much detail here to avoid spoilers, but let’s just say some people just pop up magically, while others just disappear and you’re wondering where the heck they went to. It seems like a cop out, and it’s like these characters can’t have anything wrong happen with them, and if it does, it’ll be swept under the rug conveniently. This gets tiresome and it makes the story dull and predictable possibly warding off potential readers.
I haven’t read the second or third yet, but I don’t think I’ll rush to go ahead and do so. If I find the second one, I’ll take it, otherwise I’ll take my time. Take it or leave it on this one.
This is a story of one young woman's quest to find out what she really wants from life. While she is willing to match up other people, Deborah guards her own heart for the sake of the greater good - her family's well-being. After reading the book, I had to ask myself why I do the things that I do. Do I do them because they are laid on my heart - a passion from God - or do I do them because I think that others expect it from me.
I do have to admit that the story seems to drag in spots, though the whole thing takes place in six short months. The rate in which the characters fall for each other is a little unrealistic, but putting that aside the story line is enjoyable.
I recommend this book to those who enjoy historical romance and especially fans of Tracie Peterson.
