I enjoyed reading this book, it was a lovely romance. However, I have a problem with so called 'christian' authors who imply that unequally yoked relationships are initially okay to start or somehow God's will. Of course when you are the author, you can pen all sorts of sillyness while in real life it is quite different. You can't just get in a relationship with anyone because it may not be right for you at that time, Yes even if you 'love' them. I would have enjoyed this book better if landmark values were communicated more clearly for a christian audience.

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.

"Sometimes if a man finds the rhythm that speak to his heart, and if he can dance the right steps, if he can find a way to pull hope out of thin air and not let doubt steal his dream or cause him to whittle it down too small, maybe he can grab hold of that dream and hang on for dear life. That kind of dream can make the sunrise brighter every morning"
