I admire Karen's writing AND her Christian theme running entirely through the book. Her characters were believable for the most part and her story was good. However somehow for me it just didn't 'hold together' as far as a novel goes. I would recommend it especially for readers who like a girly romantic novel. Don't plan to read her again.
I love the way this author crafts her words. Her writing is fresh,her story enchanting. She hits on all senses and emotions. I expect to see 'Karen Harter' on many books to come!
