I loved this book! January 29, 2013
I am still fairly new to the Christian Fiction genre but I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. I had my suspicions throughout it that it had been loosely based on the Book of Ruth in the Bible. As I turned to the Reading Group Guide in the back, that suspicion was confirmed. Ruth is one of my favorite stories in the Bible and to see it presented in such a way...Natalia leaving her home and her family to follow her heartbroken stepmother to America. It was so beautiful. And I loved the little almost romance going on between her and Brian. She fought her feelings for him in the beginning of the book because she was afraid of ending up like her dad and Maureen (her stepmother). How the book ends, I can't tell you. But I enjoyed all of it! Wonderful book!
Review by Megan
Natalia’s about to discover her place in the world . . . and it’s not following in her father’s footsteps.
After watching her father jump from one marriage to the next, Natalia has completely written off love. And when her father divorces his third wife—the only one who has been a mother to her—Natalia is ready to write him off too.
Needing a change of scenery, Natalia leaves her home in Spain and relocates with her stepmother to sun-soaked Florida. But she didn’t realize just how far a new school, a new culture, and a new lifestyle would push her out of her comfort zone.
One of her biggest surprises comes from Brian, a pastor’s son with an adorable smile, who loves God with a sincerity that astounds Natalia. She doesn’t want to fall for him, but she can’t seem to avoid him long enough to get him out of her mind.
Love is the last thing Natalia wants. Even so, God has her right where she belongs.
