Meet the Author

I am an accountant and a husband and father of four boys.I grew up in a small town in northern Canada where there were a large number of characters and a constantly changing population. Being able to observe and assess people was an essential skill for small town life.My mother taught me to read when I was four so she could get the housework done. My father loved to tell stories and taught me how. My wife and sons have taught me the value of love.While I grew up on a steady diet of science fiction and action adventure, it was my knowledge of small town characters and love of happy endings that steered me in the direction of writing romance.My wife is still waiting for my first science fiction book and my teens are waiting for a sword and sorcery book. It may be a while.

    Christian 710 pages

    This book is Christian fiction. It is 710 pages and all but 10 of them are story related. It is pretty preachy. Another reviewer said it was not, so I guess it depends on the reader's perspective. There are quite a few left out words and any form of the word smirk, seems to be one of the author's favorite. The storyline is good, the character's likable, the animals lovable. This story has no sex, cursing, violence or mystery. It is about an unwed mother and a Christian man finding love. Ages 16 and up.

    Beautifully written contemporary and clean romance

    What a wonderful book. The author's characters are so fully human and personable. The theme of looking past the exterior wrappings of a person stayed with me the whole time I was reading the book and it evrn inspired some great conversation with friends. This romance is clean but not sappy or sacharine. The faith of the characters is authentic, not preachy. Wonderful book, wonderful author. I look forward to reading more of his work.

    This was a very well written Christian romance. The characters were realistic and their journey towards each other and a better understanding of God's love and grace were inspiring. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a romance book with depth of characters and content.

    Need condensed version

    Decent overall story but could easily be condensed to 300 or 400 pages by doing away with all the detail about main male characters job which became quite tiresome several times in the book. I'm not big on religion and although religion theme was part of book, I didnt feel it too "preachy" as other reviews opined. Did finish book, but skimmed many pages in doing so. Once again, due to micro descriptive writing style.

    Really enjoyed

    Flipped on past this several times....boring cover, wasn't interested in the preview. Took a chance on it though (it's free, right?) and very glad I did. Loved the story, grew to love the characters, and I thoroughly enjoyed the Christian theme...nice read! CherishD

    Yes, this is Christian fiction. Since there are 67 til now reviews, I wonder what the readers who didn't care for the religious side think a Christian novel would be like? Just no cursing, sex, or violence? The purpose of Christian fiction is to weave a lifelike story around Christian values and how it affects the characters.Also, Mr. Sanderson showed a great amount of various knowledge in this story. I for one enjoyed the sidebars. Want to read more!

    Nice little love story

    This is the first of Bill Sanderson's books that I read. It was sweet, reminiscent of a Hallmark romance movie. I enjoyed watching the character developement and the overall theme.

    A Brothers Duty

    Very well written. Heart felt. I enjoyed reading this story very much. I would hope that there are brother and sister soldiers out there that would take on a promise of such magnitude with the integrity of a soldiers vow and follow through with the promise that they gave their dying friend. God bless each and every one of our men and women that serve to keep us and our coyntry safe!!

    Okay

    It's not what I expected. the book was well written and nice. I think it's better suited for a female audience.
