Overview

How do you know, at fifteen, what love and affection really mean?  Ruth learned all too soon that love is commitment, and affection has a price.  But who will ultimately make the commitment, and who will pay the price?

 

At fifteen, Ruth thought she had her life planned out. That is until she met Luke, a charming new cadet from the local military school.  After entering into a seemingly harmless teenage romance, Luke’s possessive attitude and subtle remarks begin to undermine Ruth’s confidence, sending her into an emotional tailspin.

 

A beautiful young girl is suddenly lost in a grown-up world, trying desperately to hang on to a love she thought would last forever.  Shattered dreams and hopeless tears become the bricks that build walls around Ruth; yet just below her broken heart, a beautiful vessel is being formed. 

 

Join Ruth on her wedding day, five years later, as her childhood friend helps her journey back to face the demons of her past.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Every teenage girl needs to grab a copy of this book. "Do not awaken love until the time is right" is the underlying theme of this book, however, it also shows how there is still hope and redemption when our human druthers get in the way of this principal. You will be given a fresh perspective on the reality and consequences of our choices in life, along with the struggles and the strength that comes from them. There is no sugar-coating for Kathryn, and you can sense her passion for her audience in the pages. She tackles the issues of abortion, teenage pregnancy, and premarital sex in a way that is real, but palatable. She opens you to the option of waiting or being born-again, and the beauty that can come from your ashes.  I am so glad to see a book like this. We need a present-day role model who writes about present-day realities that young girls face and are unsure where to turn in order to face them. This is definitely a book I'm keeping on my shelf for my future daughter(s)!See full review @ The Indigo Quill . blogspot . com

Read this book if you have a daughter approaching teenage years and dating. It is a realistic account (based on real life events) of dating, peer pressure, sex and religion.

Kathryn Hewitt has presented a look into the mind of a young girl and facing pressure of joining womanhood. This young woman has committed her life to Christ and vowed to remain a virgin until married. When evil lurks in the body of a young man named Luke who has made it his mission to seduce 15 year old Ruth. We see such plotting...what a journey we are on! Will Ruth be able to resist the pressure of this pro, as we soon discover? Will his friends and her family be able to see through him? The choices that this young girl has to make, beyond her years. Will God answer her prayers? Will she go through years later with her wedding...you have to read this book to get these answers. I received this book from the Author and First Wild Card Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.

I enjoyed the book and was excited to find out the author is from Camden. The book is so true for so many people, I loved the ending.
