AND NOW…THE FIRST CHAPTER:
This was an extremely quick read for me. I had it finished in one afternoon. Ms. Warren has a terrific talenting in writing a novel that really captures the reader and holds them to the very end. I found this book hard to put down once I started! Zenovia “Zee” Sinclair is a character that will tug at your heart. She’s a young teenager struggling with taking care of a mother who has a mental issue and she just wants to be normal. I could truly feel as if I was a friend rooting for her and praying for her.
This book was well written with a powerful message of forgiveness, betrayal and God’s love. While I enjoyed this read there is one minor detail that I would have left out of this book, had I been the author, and that was the sex before marriage issue. At the same time that I feel that should have been left out, it does have a message of what’s right and what’s wrong.
I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a quick, thought provoking read. Five star praises!!!
