Ope’s Opinion:  If you enjoy Christian Fiction you will like this book.  The story is very God centered. Not preachy at all.  This is one of the first books Rachel Hauck wrote.  Her newer books are still God centered, but not as blunt.

This book has wonderful characters with flaws.  It was great to read about a marriage as a work in progress.  Ethan and Julie have difficulties to overcome and work out.  They weren’t always being mature and communicative.  This is so real and awesome to read about.  It was nice to see the people who surrounded Ethan and Julie wanted their marriage to succeed.  So many books are written as though a marriage is disposable.

This book is very uplifting and encouraging.  I will be reading more of Rachel Hauck.

Rating:  Three Chairs – I like the book enough to to suggest it to a friend or two.
