    ┬┐Learning to be content┬┐

    This book has 374 pages. I normally do not like a book to be over 250 pages. That is my only complaint about this book. Ruth snubbed her hometown boyfriend, Paul, at her prom, claiming that he would hold her down and keep her in her small, rural North Dakota town. She wanted room to fly. Then, along came Jack. She fell hard. She moved in with him when it was clear that he did not want to marry. They bought a radio station together. There relationship was not good. He referred to her as ¿Babe¿. I think that should have been a red flag. About 20 years after that prom night, Paul returns to his hometown. There is instantly a connection. Ruth has to heal herself before they can develop a relationship. She has to realize that the grass is not always greener on the other side. She has to start developing a relationship with Christ, and she has to rid herself of Jack the parasite. Is she capable of doing this? If you like Christian romance that is breezy, this book is for you. This is a book you read not to get to the destination, but to enjoy the ride.
