I really recommend this book, because it's a story of survival.

This is the most insipid romance I've read yet. Teenage sweethearts reunite after a decade plus, but one has completely lost faith. Thrown together as camp counselors again, they face the wrath of nature and, expectedly, the prodigal son comes home.

The biggest problem I had with this book is that the author makes reference to situations that are referred to by the characters as miracles. A miracle is an act of God; by definition, a miracle has characteristics that cannot be explained by natural laws, natural forces, or anything else in the physical universe. The problem is that the situations themselves aren't miraculous; they could be classified as divine providence or amazing coincidence, but they're nothing like the miracles of the Bible.

The second problem I had with this book is the introduction of a juvenile delinquent named Randy, who is an accomplished lock picker and thief, despite being only 10 years old. He is easily the most annoying character in the book and I fervently wished someone would have not spared the rod and spoiled the child. This kid needed a good smack or two.

The ending is more sadly predictable than those of the other Love Inspired books I've read.
