What People Are Saying:

"Some books only merit a quick read, others should be slowly savored, and a select few are so good you just have to read them out loud to your wife. This is that third sort!" ~John Dykstra, Reformed Perspective

Breath of fresh air

Though a woman of 33 years, I am never inclined to read romance novels as they always follow the same format Hallmark uses for all of their films- mushy, gushy & empty. DW did not, of course, download the Christian romance novel template and proceed. Instead, what we have here is a delightful, charming gospel-centered story that I enjoyed throughly at every turn. Laughter & intrigue mingle with a handful of scenarios giving me pause for sanctification in my own heart. Loved it. Have given copies to friends and relatives.

Great fun read!

I can honestly say that I never expected a romance book to include supralapsarianism in it! Great book full of mystery and clean romance.

Michelle A.
Great novel!

I’m not usually a fan of fiction, but Doug Wilson has won me over with this one. It was engaging to the end. I’ve read three more of his novels since.


This book was captivating and engaging the entire time! Definitely would recommend.
