This is a wholesome love story - no steamy sex scenes, but a warm loving relationship, that grows around the Morman faith. There was lots of referances to their beliefs, and customs. I thought that made it interesting, learned about an unfimiliar faith! Loved the characters. Books like this always make me wish the author would write another book, to include these characters and ler us watch them grow up...
Finally a love story that show people really growing together in mature love: it isn't just another romp in the hay. Each individual is growing and maturing independently until they are really fully developed characters. Bravo. Even though the story is based on character development, the pace of the story kept the reader moving comfortably forward.
I'm a huge Carla Kelly fan, but had only read the books she'd written for Harlequin. She does a beautiful job of giving you true historical background with her romances so they are great just for that, but this book is even better than that! This is a faith-based romance and even if you do not share the ideological faith of the heroes (I don't) you will come away with a better understanding of what you do believe in. It takes you till the end of the book to realize why the author chose her book title and then you will be in total agreement with her. So many of us live in "borrowed light" and we really don't shine our light until the light is one we own. I have recommended this book to our church's book club. I rarely make recommendations to others because I know I prefer my own choices, but I think those who enjoy historical romances and inspirational romances will love this book.
My mom and brother read it said it was good
