As an avid romance-genre enthusiast, this was honestly one of the more engaging books I have read! Alice Magro does an outstanding job at illustrating the book’s contrast of light and heavy topics, characters' moods, and setting and overall atmosphere, allowing for a clear picture and understanding of the plot. All the characters are well-written and enthralling as they each go through their own personal tribulations, providing a gratifying finish to their stories. I would definitely recommend the book to others who enjoy a mix of romance and thought-provoking themes of faith and morals. Expect to have a compelling read when picking it up!
