My Perspective

This was an interesting book. The characters were realistic to me, as was the setting and the circumstances. What I enjoyed about the book was that it showed how human we can be. Not one of us is perfect. Not one. And as much as we do not deserve it, Jesus loves us anyway. That was shown throughout this book, weaved into several parts of the story line. It was a beautiful theme and one that needs to be read.

It was a difficult storyline in that the problem the main character had is very controversial, but it is real. This really happens, both today and in the past. And I think that sometimes we feel that Christians wouldn’t make this type of “mistake”, however I think that is false. And by saying this I am in no way supporting this issue, I am simply stating that there is a chance that it’s happened, and bravo to the authors for writing about it. I love seeing real life in Christian fiction, because it feels more real to me.

There were times where I found myself speed reading through. The characters acted a little bit too predictable for my liking, however the overall theme made up for that. I encourage you to read this and learn from it. Understand that none of us are perfect. We all make mistakes, and we all seek redemption and forgiveness. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Guest Post from Michelynn Christy & Brandi Gabriel

Take a step back in time…

If He Only Knew is a novel set in the late 1960s. The book deals with family relationships, loyalty, friendship, love, and loss. The main topic is somewhat controversial in nature, but we won’t mention what it is lest we spoil the story for readers. A similar book was written in a different genre under another name and the story really resonated with readers. We felt compelled to share this story with others who perhaps wouldn’t pick up that particular genre, and that is how this book came about. It may be set in the sixties, but the message is as relevant today as ever. Our prayer is that God will touch readers’ hearts and draw them closer to Him.
