In some places in the story, I felt it drag a bit and some details that could have been left out without affecting the storyline. In my opinion, if the story was tightened up, it would have really showed off the authors writing talent more. Also, I felt there were situations that were resolved almost too perfectly and too quickly.
In spite of that, I still felt the story was well-written, the characters were ones I came to care about, and the faith thread was very much a natural part of it. I think one of my favorite parts was at the end when Logan felt a bit like Abraham when he went to sacrifice his son on the mountain. Logan felt tested and tried. But instead of running away, he sought God even more in his heart, willing to give up what he loved the most to fulfill God's will in his life no matter the outcome. I really think that's a lesson we can all learn in our walk with the Lord. Learning to give up what we want for what God wants. Because ultimately what the Lord has for us is good, right and to our benefit!
I would recommend this to Christian historical fiction readers who like a good faith theme, characters real enough to connect with, and a good love story to follow along!
