    Good But Nor Fantastic

    I read alot of Christian Fiction and was really looking forward to The Fire in Ember by DiAnn Mills. I enjoyed the plot and messages of forgiveness and trust in the novel; I enjoyed watching the relationships and friendships grow as the novel progressed. However,the novel just didn't didn't draw me in as much as I had been hoping. I finshed reading Franz's Courting Morrow Little (EXCELLENT book) several hours before I began reading the Fire in Ember, and I just didn't find the story to be as intersting. To me, there were sections of the novel that I found predictable and parts that I thought were too repetative (for example: I felt Bert's secret was brought up too many times before she finally shared it; it was over played and that annoyed me). The book wasn't bad, it just didn't meet my expectations.

    For Christian Fiction, I Highyly Recommend Books by: Francine Rivers (she is AMAZING: Redeeming Love, Mark of the Lion Series, Atonment Child, and th Scarlet Thread are all mustreads), Tamera Alexander, Julie Lessman, Deeanne Gist, Denise Hunter, Robin Jones Gunn, and Laura Franz

    However the fact that John and Ember never trusted each other until the last twenty pages or so  became annoying.  How much in love were they if they had no faith in each other.  The other characters in the book developed nicely.   Though  I would have passed on this book  if I had known incest was a plot point.  Just not a personal favorite when I read .
