CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Although an inspiration romance, author Liz Isaascon does not push faith on the reader; rather introducing it with skill and subtlety. You need not believe to enjoy this sweet emotionally filled romance. Filling her pages with prose rather than sex or fluff, Isaacson, crafts a character driven story-line with every day issues and crisis’. With issues including family dynamics, emotional insecurity, mental health, addiction, and faith, Isaacson realistically portrayed life as it really is. As a result, Isaacson, skillfully shows how we each struggle daily with insecurities and issues, yet as our faith and trust in God grows, our turmoil lessens.
Weaving the theme of romance and love, the characters grow progressively throughout the book.
