"This story had everything I look for: historical fiction about a time period I don’t know much about, mystery, good twists, charming/immersive setting. It also had wisdom about faith delivered in a way that wasn’t overt or preachy. It was perfectly done! This is Christian fiction at its best."

"Second time through this one and it held up! I love that. The first time I read it was probably 7th or 8th grade, so I wasn't sure what to expect. This author is actually really good at telling historical stories in an interesting and informative way - which is what I enjoy about historical fiction. This is a story about the struggles of Bible translators (and readers) during the time of Henry VIII. Overall it was well-written and didn't simplify complex issues. I walk away with a greater appreciation of my religious freedoms and gratitude for the sacrifices of others that have given me these freedoms. The ending was a little trite, but the rest of the book was great."

"I've swung and missed so often the last few years with Christian fiction that I've come to have really low expectations. But not here! This was well-written and absorbing. I felt fully immersed in the ancient time period and wrapped up in the trials of the heroine. I felt edified and challenged by the faith elements of the story - it's been so long since I've gotten that from fiction!

There were definitely some corn-ball moments. I could've done with less of the romance. Oh how the times have changed!"

"This book was somewhat nostalgic for me - this is exactly the sort of novel I read all the time growing up. I definitely still enjoyed it! I read it super fast compared to other books lately - so I feel like it lacked a little depth. But it was a great story - heartwarming and interesting. I think I enjoyed it a lot more now than I would've before having a baby. "

It's a beautiful portrait of how to approach marriage and general trials of life. It also really makes you think about the story of Esther and all that she went through and how faithful God is! "

"Another book about the Salem witch trials - that's two since January! This one was very thoughtful and a little more wrenching than the YA one I read earlier this year. The author really put you in the mindset of the Puritan girl. The modern story was interesting, but I had trouble relating to the main character's struggles. There was some kitschy-ness but overall, I had fun listening to it."

Dear Mr. Knightley

"This makes the third book in the last year that I've read with the same basic premise. Can we all just wake up and realize we're trying to remake You've Got Mail? Nothing will ever be as good - let's just let it rest.

This one had some sweet and insightful moments and it certainly held my interest. But the cheese factor and the predictability of the plot dropped it way down in my estimation. Also it is completely unbelievable that someone would write letters like this. Not just in our modern era, but ever! Definitely had to suspend reality a lot on this one."
