Overall I really enjoyed this book. The plot was fairly predictable, but it was exciting enough and the writing was good enough for it to be a page turner. I really liked Eliza, the main character. She’s smart and stands up for herself and she knows what she wants. She has dreams and she follows them even though many obstacles in her way. She has a lot of difficulties and yet she never gives up, and I admire that. It was interesting to watch her
The faith of the main characters is tested repeatedly throughout the book, so it was interesting to read about their spiritual journey as they dealt with difficulties. I loved seeing the two main characters grow together as they were tested.
My only complaint is the ending of the book. Without giving too much away Eliza sacrifices her dreams for someone else which really frustrated me. The whole book is about all her dreams and goals and then she gives them up in the end? Why does it always have to be the women that gives up everything? Yes, sometimes we have to give up our dreams in order to get something better, but it would be nice if a man had to do that every once in a while.
Overall I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading other books by this author. I was given this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for a review.
