Don Roberto’s Daughter: Natasha by Connor Royce is a Christian romance that will delight the reader. It is set in Mexico and America with a real cosmopolitan feel to it.
The novel is about awakenings in God and prodigals returning. “She wanted to pray like she had as a child, when God was as easy to talk to as her Papa.” When we have known God, if we drift away, we are still anchored to Him and it feels as if something is missing until we return to Him. It may surprise us to know that God misses us too. “How strange… that God could miss her.” God awaits our return.
We all need people who will help us in our Christian walk. We may need encouragement to keep walking faithfully. The greatest gift a new Christian can receive is a Bible as then we can read God’s word for ourselves. “Her spirit had awakened and it was hungry.”
Two distinct and different cultures exist in the novel. It is a joy to see them being explored.
Father figures in Mexico are revered. They are the head of the family dispensing love and wisdom. Likewise we can see God doing the same.
Prayer is powerful. When we pray we are just talking to God. We receive a peace that passes understanding in spite of our circumstances.
There were many book references given which gave a feeling of familiarity to me.
I really enjoyed Dom Roberto’s Daughter. It was a gentle read of exploration and unveiling the heart of God.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
