This cover art. Bethany House just keeps getting better and better with their visuals. If I were to judge books by their covers I’d be broke from buying up all the books being released by Bethany House.
As for the book itself. I went about 60 pages into the story before calling it quits. It wasn’t really the story itself – I just didn’t really click with any of the characters. There were some elements that really fascinated me, especially Martha’s job, but I just didn’t find myself empathizing with the characters and that’s a big deal for me. I’m absolutely certain that many people will love this story but for me it wasn’t a good fit.
