A Sweet Read
Love’s Journey by Emily Murdoch is a Christian historical novella and a fabulous story to kick off a new series. It was a sweet, gentle read which I enjoyed.
There was the theme of searching. The tenacity of which reminded me of the Bible story of searching for the lost sheep.
There was also the theme of priorities. Our priorities should be for people rather than land or possessions.
The reader was enchanted by the blossoming of the leading lady. For 1840, she was a modern woman of her time, preferring to rely on no one but herself. Life should not be done in isolation. Sooner or later, pride needs to be swallowed and help accepted.
