Another thing I really liked about this book was how the gospel was so intertwined with the story and in the lives of the characters. And I liked how she tactfully handles difficult subjects, like rape. She is also a very good writer. Sometimes as I read, a sentence would stand out to me because it was so beautifully written, because a sentiment was so perfectly expressed. I am grateful I finally got around to reading this book. It has been on my shelf for a long time, but I am glad a read it now.
