The other day, I was looking for something good to read and so I was browsing Amazon for Christian Fiction. Anyways, low and behold, this is the book I came across.
I scrolled down the page to read the reviews and I liked what I saw. Seems like this story is getting some good press (for a good reason). Considering I haven’t read anything by Regina Jennings before, I might just have to keep an eye on any new books she puts out.
Anyways – why was this book so good? I laughed a lot and I couldn’t put it down once I picked it up. Not to say that this book is entirely comical in content! By no means! My heart ached for Abigail, but sometimes I wanted to smack her for the stunts she pulled. She’s a fantastic heroine. And Jeremiah – my oh my. That boy. Equally well characterized.
There is a point in books where you place yourself in the shoes of one of the characters, and you feel the plot the way they experience it. Every scene between Abigail and Jeremiah turned me red as a tomato at times, but I’m also a sucker for medical history, I loved the bits about massage therapy during the Civil War. I’m not even sure if it was massage therapy – but something along those lines (I ought to know since I tuck medical history into my own manuscripts, but I don’t. Oh well).
I’m such a picky reader. But the friendship between these two, fighting against horse thieves and trying to help Jeremiah’s sister, is so fun to read.
Pick up a copy of this book if you enjoy a good Civil War/Reconstruction Era Christian Romance.
