The Alchemy Jun 25, 2009
I enjoyed the first two books in this series but I felt this feel flat. This story revolved more around Simone's brother and his story then hers. Simone's love interest also has more of a story in this book then she does. Simone doesn't even make an appearance until the third chapter. The story about Simone's brother was well written and I enjoyed the plot behind him finding Christ. Simone's story on the other hand, was almost none existent. The story of the 4 girls that is so crucial in this series was not really discussed either. I was rather disappointed with this entire story as a whole, especially because Gilbert Morris is such an amazing author. I am hoping that the final story in this series is better then this story.
A gentle lady rewarded Sep 5, 2006
It is nice to see that, every once in a while, a woman of unknown heritage and gentle manners is rewarded by life. This sweet story of Leonie's journey to family and future is worth the read. My one disappointment was the abrupt resolution of the love story. We couldn't have developed this more than a 2 page dialogue and the assumption of happily ever after?
