Review:

Very well written and we were impressed with the author's careful handling of historical facts. She did her homework well. . . Our judgment: a very fine novel, one we are delighted to recommend! ~ The Biblical EvangelistA 1740's historical romance novel--and a good one. . . . An intricate and tantalizing plot that brings them together, showing dramatically, yet maintaining historical accuracy of what others went through in this period of transition for Christian faith. ~ Living StreamsA fine novel . . . Of course, you must have this book! ~ Librarian's WorldGeorge Whitefield, William Law, The Wesley brothers-- impressive figures in the Christian faith. What was it like to walk in their world? . . . It's tight, rich reading Crow has captured this bygone era exceptionally well, not just in dialogue and descriptive details, but in the very tone and rhythm of the narrative... Interestingly, all the main characters, save one, are authentic. Concluding footnotes, a time line and glossary accentuate the book's accuracy. Historical fiction for the purist. It's as impressive as the lives it sketches. ~  Laura Richmond, Christian Retailing
