BookLook Bloggers provided me with a complimentary copy of this book, and I’ve given my honest opinion.

I was intrigued by the idea of the story of Fiona Hume, a former child star who once dreamed of living the quiet life of an artist, but instead she’s been stuck in some kind of a rut for years with no art to show for it while her money’s been running out. When she becomes landlady to Josia Yeu, Josia brings a picture of happiness into Fiona’s bleak life space.

However, I’ll not be finishing this book on account of the language in it. While I do read books in which swearing may appear in moderation, depending on the subject matter, it’s not something I expect or much appreciate finding in Christian Fiction. I think it’s a misrepresentation, unfitting for the genre. No, I don’t think stories labeled as “Christian” have to be unrealistically squeaky clean reads, as life itself isn’t squeaky clean, but there are some things I find to simply be in poor taste.
