Reviewer: Valerie Jackson
The book starts out stilted and full of clichés and awkward exposition. About 1/3 into the book the conversational style abruptly improves during the job offer phone call. At the halfway point the author was really getting her feet under her and by the end I was paying less attention to the style of writing and more to the problems of the primary characters, Simone and Aaron.
I found the characters' lives a little too perfect, both spiritually and financially. I would have loved to seen their struggles on stage rather than learning about their problems almost solely through character introspection. Simone is a sweetie with a sure sense of self, by the way. Anyone would love to have her for a friend.
This is, I believe, the author's first published inspirational novel. As her storytelling develops more skill and depth of character, she is easily a writer to watch.
