Oooo, boy. Now, this next book may be very popular with some people, but for me it was just too, “out there”. I have always been one to enjoy stories that feel more real—not that exciting, fun and fanciful stories are not entertaining. (Reminds me of the time my husband said to me, “You know, someone really needs to do a story about two robots falling in love. Has anyone ever done that?” I responded, “No. That’s because people don’t care about robots. What’s fun about robots falling in love?” Two months later WALL-E came out. Then my husband reminded me of that conversation. Just shows how much—or how little—I know.)
Book rating: Here a little, there a little
The Lady of Bolton Hill was certainly a fun and entertaining story, with a great Spiritual message to be sure. The main characters, Clara and Daniel were enjoyable for the most part, but I found them to be a bit predictable and I actually found myself getting frustrated with them at times.
Clara is a very “idealistic” journalist, and Daniel’s powerful business is threatened by her work and determination to defend the underprivileged. There were many times when I was reading this when I kept thinking to myself “oh, brother”. But again, please don’t let me dissuade you at all. This is a very good, clean, Christian book. I just thought it was over-the-top.
So there you have it, folks. Overall, fun clean book—just not the kind of book for me.
