Never Look Back
Love Among The Lilacs by Jenna Victoria is a sweet contemporary Christian romance that just spoke to my heart.
There were many themes and one of the main ones was family. Families come in different shapes and sizes. Within the novel there were certainly some contrasting families. Loving families radiated out of the novel, as they took the less fortunate under their wing. The reader could ‘feel’ the love.
Upbringing makes a difference in how we live our adult lives. A poor upbringing may motivate one to break the cycle of poor choices or one may fall in the same trap of repeating parental mistakes. Past baggage may affect present life. It needs to be dropped and trust picked up.
A Final Wish
War Of The Heart by Jenna Victoria is the most delightful Christian romance that really spoke to my heart.
Two time settings – present day and London 1940 and a rift to heal, make for exciting reading. The atmosphere of the blitz has been perfectly captured – the devastation, the fear, the bulldog spirit and even the hope. “The battlefield had become in one sense their mission field.” Everyone, everywhere needs to hear of the hope that is found in Jesus. The wartime spirit bounced off the pages as people banded together. They gave out of their poverty.
Dreams were a theme. Sometimes we take on the pressure of other people’s dreams in order to not disappoint. We need to identify our God given dreams and live them out.
