After I heard the genre of the book, I was expecting to be bored by chapter 3 but with great delight, I say I was mistaken. By chapter 1, I was already impressed with the interesting plot and the characters were believable unlike other books in its genre. The story carried me to places I hadn't had the honor of visiting before in other books. Looking forward to book two.

I absolutely loved the story. I loved it because the characters had depth. They became real to me as I read the book. I felt myself connecting and identifying with them. I returned to my old stomping grounds in Scotland and England as I moved through the pages. I came back across The Pond to my adopted home country of America as the characters did. I identified with their struggles and pain. I went with Michael, one of the main characters, into Buckingham Palace. I rode with him in the Olympics. I sat and listened as he ministered in America. I felt his pain, his joy, his doubt, his assurance. I was surprised by my own emotional reaction to the events as they unfolded, and how I had to fight to keep those emotions in check. (Being British, it's just not proper for a grown man to cry over a book. But boy was it hard not to.) I was inspired. I was challenged. The story came to life within my own head, and I finished the book wishing I could actually meet these people who came to life in the pages of Glynn's book.
