    While it is true that this is historical and it is a Christian book, I have to admit that I was quite disappointed in it. The story is very depressing--that makes it realistic, I guess. The romance is almost nonexistent. And I found absolutely no humor in it. It seems as though it was a myriad of missed opportunities that left me feeling quite unfilled.




    I will admit that I found Lucy and Bo fairly delightful characters. I enjoyed the story between the two of them quite a bit. I felt for them each time something happened to keep them apart or give them difficulties. Once in a while, Lucy turned to God on a couple of occasions, but for the most part, she left God out of her life. I cannot even say that Bo embraced the Lord.




    I felt that the message of the book was somewhat lost. God was always in the background, and I cannot even say for sure that Lucy ultimately turned to God or not--the story seems inconclusive. It made sense that Lucy would blame God for her struggles--after all, man is often guilty of that. Even Christians have been known to do that. But I would have liked a stronger message.




    I was glad that there was no sex (implied but inconclusive) or profanity, so as far as that goes, it is great. I sometimes grew tired of the constant going back and forth between the 1940's and the present time. I also wasn't sure about the author's use of point of view (back and forth between first and third person). But once everything is stripped away, I think I can say the story was solid and well-researched, and that is why it receives a 3-star rating from me.




    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
