Reviews - What do customers think about A Steadfast Surrender?
Frustrating Feb 9, 2007
Mrs. Moser's style is fun, fast, interesting. But the theology seemed forced and unreal. And I was irritated (that's not really a strong enough word) that men were written out of the lives of these women, all the way to the end. I understand life's difficulties and bad men, but they were truly inconsequential in this novel. Bailey was redeemed, I guess, but he was still irrelevant in the long run. This book was very frustrating and unreal in the end.
A Steadfast Surrender Apr 11, 2004
Although I liked the story I didn't like the way it ended, it had me lost the way it ended.
Steadfast Surrender Jul 30, 2003
The title is exactly the basis of the book; it's hard to state it any more clearly than that! Nancy Moser is so good at bringing every character so fully to life you may even catch yourself talking back to them. The premise of the book, "totally surrendering your ALL to God, no matter what your ALL may be" is a tough subject that Ms. Moser not only meets head on, but also gives wise counsel to throughout the book. As usual, I become totally caught up in reading one of Ms. Moser's books and cannot put it down; the details of every plot twist keep you locked in to the whole story. So many nice little twists and turns keep you turning pages long after the rest of the house is shut down for the night. And even once you've closed the cover there's the questions that this inspired writing has raised into your own consciousness. Could you do what Claire has done? Would you be able to surrender all to God? Shouldn't you be more able to give up everything to one who gave His life for you? Thank you Nancy Moser for another terrific book, and characters that will continue on again, we hope, just as Merry did.
Eating the Middle First Jun 25, 2003
You know how often the middle of a novel languishes? Just kind of sits there doing nothing, as if the author is just biding her time between the kicking beginning and the strong finish? You won't have that problem with A Steadfast Surrender. The characters Nancy Moser introduces once her main lady, Claire, arrives in Steadfast, are memorable, to say the least. My favorites are senior citizens Blanche and Ivan, a crotchity widow and widower who can't deny their attraction to each other--but will have you in stitches trying.
There are teenagers in trouble, middle-agers in conflict, and everything in between--all being challenged through Claire's bold actions to ask themselves whether they, too, are willing to say "yes" to God.
I highly recommend this book. In my opinion, it is Moser's best to date.
