Rekindled is one of the most powerful redemption stories I've ever read. I kept hoping the heroine's husband would reveal himself to her, and I held my breath every time I thought the truth would come out. The emotional tension kept me reading through the end with anticipation. Of course, my throat clogged more than once, and my eyes watered. A-hem. I love a story that makes me feel something so deep and so rich that it makes me want to love my husband even more. Truth be told, there are few historical romances that I've enjoyed as much as this one. In my opinion Rekindled ranks right up there with Redeeming Love, by Francine Rivers. The villains were creepy and seemed very real to me. I loved the characters and the heroine's interactions with the ladies from the bordello, as well as her friendship with the simple-minded man. Excellent characterization. Once again I escaped to another world and loved every minute of it. I can't wait to read the sequel. Something tells me it's going to be about a teen rescued from the bordello, but I could be wrong. However, given the level of commitment the hero and heroine felt toward saving that poor girl, I'm convinced she'll have an important role in the next book in the series. Did I mention that I love this book? The ending was well-paced, and the timing and resolution was as perfect as any I've ever read. Great climax, and extremely romantic reading!

If I had not read the book description I would have enjoyed this book very much. BUT because I read the description I already knew the premise of the book and it ruined the experience. The first 60 pages were boring and predictable and the majority of the book was skippable. Don't read the description and you will enjoy the book.

    Liked the book very much, but found it a little more drawn out than it needed to be. Worth reading.

    Highly recommended

    Loved Kathryn & Larson! They were both very likable lead characters. I could empathize with both of them. This was a wonderful christian romance with a great message. It's also a real tear jerker! It was so very hard to put down! It had a perfect epilogue. I would love to see a series leading with some of the supporting characters.

    Endearing story of two people who learn how to love each other better through god

    Very enjoyable story of a husband and wife who learn through god how to love each other and be better spouses. I give it the rating I did because the book relied heavily on quoted scripture and at times seemed more about the scripture than about the actual story.

    A page turner

    I literally couldn't put this book down. I read it in a weekend and called in sick Monday so I could finish it. This author keeps things interesting throughout and keeps you wanting more. The characters are real as are their struggles and their desire to have a closer walk with God. I can't wait to read more from this author.

    really liked it

    I didnt realize this was a christian book when I "bought" it ... but I really enjoyed it! It was not overbearing & sappy like some christian books but portrayed how we should all talk to God when going through stuff.
    Kept my attention and the enjoyed the writers style.

    Ten stars

    This book is awesome. I usually would only look for romances with dirty bits to it but this book touched my heart in a way that those books never could. Well done author, well done indeed.

    Very good book

    I appreciate the love that the main characters either have or develop for Christ but it gets a bit preachy. The bad guys are Really Bad and the good guys are Really good. An interesting love story too.
