You have to admire 52 year old newlyweds married for the first time going on a bike riding honeymoon traveling over 10,000 miles raising money for a Hope Line for troubled teens. They seem like nice people with their hearts in the right place.
But this is painfully predictable writing, where if they encounter headwinds one day, they will find some way to pontificate about it. Then there is a scripture tacked on. Fifty-two chapters of that much formalistic repetition takes a toll.
The book needed an editor in the worst way. Their intentions were noble, but they mentioned the Hope Line so often that by the third chapter, every mention made me break out in a rash. Sometimes less is considerably more.
A good editor should have caught this:
He was clearly a lost puppy, one who looked hungry and in need of love, if not downright pathetic.
It gets worse when they talk about roadkill:
The round blob of guts, gore and raw meat lay on its side, its eyes wide open.
Object lessons such as those remind us we must look at our surroundings to stay safe no matter how much we desire a treat along the way.
The biggest issue is some painfully wrong advice. Asking your husband to blow a whistle on you every time you have a bad attitude is terrible advice; it’s just wrong. I would hate to see a young naive couple believe this would be helpful in their marriage.
The bike ride was a cool idea, but there is no wisdom here.
