One of the best Christian fiction books I have ever read. Heitzmann is one of my favorite authors. I have read all of her most recent books, but I have not read the first series. This book deals with painful issues regarding wounds we recieve from our parents, even well-meaning ones. The author brings out these issues not to lay blame, but to demonstrate that knowing who you are in Christ is the only way to abundant life on earth, just as accepting Him as Savior is the only way to eternal life.
I started off liking this book, but it got so-so towards the end. I should preface by saying that this is only the 2nd Christian fiction I've ever read, so maybe it's just not my thing, but I thought it took too long after the climactic moment for things to start rolling again for the characters. The plot involving the husband was surprising and suspenseful, and the kids in it were adorable, so it wasn't a bad read, but it just seemed to drag at the end.
I liked the book. I especially like the hero Cal because he wasn't your run of the mill romance hero. He was funny and had a lot of rapport with children. I thought the author spent a little too much time re-thinking and going over and over each issue of each character. Otherwise a good story.

Very interesting and well written book! I love all of Kristen Heitzmann's books. She develops her characters very realistically and adds enough suspense and a little touch of spirituality to make her books very enjoyable.
