When I started reading this book, I really didn't think it would be my type of story.
By the first chapter I was like, ok, this isn't as bad as I thought...
And by chapter two, I was hooked!
Really, really, loved this book!
Everything about this book was amazing! From the Biblical aspects, the drama, the suspense, the characters, the setting, the heartache....everything was above super.
The story moves at a perfect pace. I am a very fast reader and I get easily discouraged when a book moves slowly. I tend to be attracted to fast paced books, but I liked the middle road Alicia took here. It was fast enough that it didn't lose me, yet slow enough that I don't think other readers would have a hard time keeping up.
Definitely a five star book for me.
I can't say enough about this book, but now the bad news...she stopped too soon! I could have read about Grace and her fellow characters for two or three more books the same size and not get tired of them!
But, thankfully, Alicia is in the midst of writing a sequel! I am so excited!
Alicia handles some tough subjects in this book and because of some of the content, I recommended this to ages 15+.
