My Review: 4/5
This is the second book that I have read from Halle Bridgeman and was not disappointed. What I truly enjoyed about the book was that she tackles problems that people face on a daily basis. She also highlights the stereotypes that haunt those who are struggling with addiction. What really surprised me about this novel was how the author also wrote how spiritual warfare effected the character’s lives. This astonished me because not many Christian authors are brave enough to write about that topic.
At first when I read the novel, I did think that the relationship between the main characters seemed realistic and that the author was pushing the relationship too hard. Yet by the end of the novel you could not help but become fond of them. The novel also seemed to have a complexity of characters that you could either relate or at least empathize with. Bridgeman has a gift of drawing on your heart with the various hardships that the characters are forced to face in the novel. Through this she displays how her characters are not perfect no matter how long that they may have been a Christian or even if they had fallen from grace.
I would give this book a 4 out of 5 because although at times the plot did seem unrealistic or vague, the author makes up for it with her ability to make her characters come to life.
