This book was gifted to me by Hannah and it came highly recommended by her. I've never read Christian Fiction before but our beliefs are very similar so she thought I would like this. I was a little hesitant, I won't lie, but only because the time period was not super appealing to me so I wasn't sure if I would be able to get into in that sense...oh, how wrong I was...
Hannah had it right...again...and I just fell IN LOVE with this book. The characters, the story, the message, the struggle, everything! I honestly cannot put into words how much this book affected me. There were passages that had me in ugly tears and it wasn't until after I read that I realized how much I needed a book like this in my life. It shook me to my core and was just SO good. There is so much about self-acceptance and trusting in the Lord. Trusting His timing and His plan and always knowing that the love is always there.
I cannot say enough good things about this book and I truly thank Hannah for giving this to me because it was exactly what I needed.
