    Very disappointed.

    Stopped reading on page 33. Was very excited to discover another Christian author and to begin her series.

    1. You can't add scripture and testimony to horrible words and obscenity and call it good Christian fiction. This story could be told in a clean manner and be even more effective. The obscenity was a major turn off. Parents beware.

    2. Much of the language and characteristics off the characters was corny and unbelievable.

    3. The storyline was very fragmented and hard to follow.

    4. Extreme gramattical errors, including left behind editors notes.

    Overall dissapointed in everything, especially this being marketed as Christian fiction as it is a very dirty read.

    Modern Day Hosea

    Sweet and entertaining story of a young woman's redemption from a life of abuse and sin. This would be a good read for young teens coming of age and making life decisions. It was just okay for me.

    Ok

    I liked the story line but i was very disappointed in the gramatical errors and the spelling. The editors corrections were included in the story line all thru the book. This book is meant to save lives and heal. It should have been read over better. The story had some gaps in it that should have been filled in better (as far as the storytelling). I skipped thru many pages because the story line was not more in depth.

    Didn't care for this book much. The writing was cheesy. The story line was predictable. I couldn't get connected to the characters. Read the entire book but was glad when I was done so i could move on to something better.

    Another great read...

    Vanessa does it again! This is a wonderful series to tap into to help you understand God's words. I love the way she shows enlightment with some of the simplest situations that we come in contact with on a periodic basis, especially when it comes to judgment of others and God's unconditional love. Can't wait to start the next one!!!

    I consider this book a part of the Rain series. I loved it!! It was my favorite of the books in this series. I couldn't stop reading and enjoyed it immensely. I would suggest reading the other books in this series because they all tie in together. I am on my way to purchasing the "Praise series" books. Vanessa Miller is now one of my favorite authors to follow. :-)

    Great book

    I absolutely enjoyed reading this book. It absolutely embodies the principles on allowing our light to shine so others may see the love of God. It really sheds light on how God continues to love us despite our short comings. Vanessa please dont ever stop allowing The Almighty to use you. Glory be to our awesome and wonderful Jehovah God forever and ever
