Note:  I received a complimentary copy for an honest review of this book from www.bookfun.org
Rose Dee is an Australian author with many books to her credit; this is the first novel of hers which is captivating.  I must say the novel is not for youth, but for adults who appreciate the romance along with the temptations that come with it prior to marriage.  Bay is a young woman who recently lost her mother, and her step-father is distant and self-absorbed.
Through navigating waters in discovering her biological father’s identity, Bay begins to grasp just how real God is even when people around her are leaving for various reasons.  When Bay begins to really look and depend on the Lord, she begins to allow His love and peace to pervade her being.  Along with now living each day, listening for His voice, she continuously is amazed at how God orchestrates life around her in answer to her prayers, what at one time Bay would have called “coincidence”.  Now on an island called Resolution, life takes many twists and turns that the audience will enjoy navigating through to the conclusion.
It was a very quick and enjoyable read, written with dangers, questions, faith and romance as just a few of the themes.  The characters capture the imagination, and the more I read, the more I knew Rose Dee is an author whose writings I will continue to enjoy for a long time.  One of the most amazing points in the novel is how God redeems some of the characters past failures while showing how it takes time to work through the residual effect it has on their lives.  The author clearly shows the battle between our thought life and choosing to believe God instead or letting go of the past to look forward to each new day with hope.
My rating is 4 stars.
