World Of The Innocent by Nadine C Keels is a Christian contemporary YA novel about awakening – an awakening to the world around us, to talents and to love. I got completely engrossed in it, so much so that I literally gasped out loud at one point.
Nadine Keels writes with sensitivity, with knowledge and with love. The novel is about love that never dies – the great love of God for His children. And about the love of friends and a blossoming young love. The story is beautifully written.
We need to tell people about Jesus, or how will they know? “People listen because you have something to say.” We do not need to be loud. It’s about the message not the volume.
Having the keys to a friend’s house speaks of trust. This is a motif for the keys to God’s kingdom. He freely gives us His keys. Do we trust Him enough to accept them?
There is the theme of learning – not just education but life. The young need to learn from the old and from each other.
World Of The Innocent was beautifully written. It spoke to my soul. The ending brought tears to my eyes with its simplicity, beauty and love. World Of The Innocent is not just for YA, it’s a novel for anyone who loves.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
