the book, and pretty much not liking it at all I don t like Christy, and I don t like the way her life and ex love interest are written about He s horrible and the dialog is awful I rarely just stop reading a bookI just can t take any.I m sure Christy s life is going to turn around when she s reunited with her sister and is treated with all the love she missed out on by abandoning Mayand she s going to find a relationship with God.I just don t want to wade through it There are too many other books that can tell basically the same thing much better Wow I m picky about fiction books but this one blew me away I absolutely loved it First thing I appreciated was the fact that they showed Christians who had problems, becoming a Christian didn t solve all the characters problems, their faith instead helped them through the problems The entire story was very believable in view of the character s faith and belief or lack thereof Second, I m a farm girl It bugs me to no end when people write
