The Wonder of Your Love

Beth Wiseman’s The Wonder of Your Love is a good read.  It is the second installment in the Land of Canaan series.  The main characters are Katie and Eli.  Both have reached a changing point in their lives, Katie’s change has resulted from the death of her estranged husband and Eli’s change involves his life after children following the marriage of his last child at home.  The story is not your usual Amish novel plot line and that is refreshing.  Both characters have expectations of what life has in store next for them.  The plot reveals how often times what God has in store is not what we have planned.  The characters are well written and refreshingly realistic, while still inspiring.  The growing strength revealed through Katie’s character and spiritual maturity was one of my favorite aspects of the book.  While still growing as a person she makes mature decisions that most in the world would find hard to do.  The character is an excellent example of a Christian dealing with the results of sin and being a shining example in the process.  This book is an enjoyable recreational read that will also give one some inspiration for ways to improve their walk.  So while its not the best book I've read lately, that makes it worthwhile for me.  Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com <http://BookSneeze®.com> book review bloggers program.
