Lonnie and Gideon are forced into marriage but neither of them are ready to be married. He makes numerous mistakes, and she tries love him while trusting that God is with her. Yet nothing seems to go the way they planned, and they must learn to forgive and trust each other.

This book was slow going for the first 200 pages. It was not character development that was slow but story development. The last 150 pages, the story took off but often went too fast. The ending was satisfying because the most interesting part of the story was the last 50 pages. I just do not enjoy having to read 300 pages to get to the good part.

This is the first book of the Cadence of Grace Series. There are few parts of the storyline I can see continuing into more books. If the pace of the story picks up, I think I might enjoy reading these books.

Waterbrook Multnomah provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
