Reviews - What do customers think about Purity Reigns (Laurel Shadrach Series, 1)?
Trust Jan 31, 2007
Purity Reigns is about trusting God and prayer. You have to believe God for whatever you need. Mrs. Moore also lets us know that sex is not the way to go.
Foster is a very good example of a good Christian. He is always there for Laurel whenever she is in trouble. Purity Reigns is a very good book. It touched my heart and my soul. I hope that Mrs. Moore continues to write more of these books.

Very good Nov 16, 2006
I picked up this book and read it in 3 days. It was a wonderful story of a teenagers life and the things she faces!! I couldnt wait to get home from school just so I could pick up this book again. There was only one thing that I did not enjoy and that was Laurel finds the perfect man at the end of the story. He is so perfect that no other boy could ever conpare. I think the author should have been a little more realistic and guys. I do think that this is a book that every girl should read. It reminded me that I need to stay close to God no matter what.

This book was awesome. The typical teenage life of Laurel is easy to relate to. As she struggles with her faith, you learn with her. This book taught me new things about God. Even if you are not a Christian, I definately recommend it! The plot is good, and God just might tell you something. Read it today.
I love books that promote purity!!!!! Jul 4, 2004
Laurel Shadrach is a teen who is being pressure to take her relationship with her boyfriend to the next level. Because of her strong faith and reliance on God (she prays a lot!) and relationships with other adults, she works through her struggles. The reader gets to feel Laurel's pain and uncertainty with every prayer and conversation. Another book you might want to check out is If I'd Only Known... by Edee Wilcox. The main character doesn't seek God until after her decision of moving to the next level has been made, so it offers somewhat of a different perspective. Both books are quick to read and keep you interested.
A Great Message and Story!!!! Mar 8, 2004
Purity Reigns is a wonderful story about a girl being pressured to take the next step in a relationship with a guy that she's been dating on and off for awhile. It shows how easy it is to get carried away and lose sight of your values. For girls who might've succumbed to the pressure, If I'd Only Known... by Edee Wilcox is a great story about getting your life back on track after taking a relationship a step too far. Both books share the heartache of being pressured. For Laurel, the struggle to not give in is the biggest obstacle. For the main character in If I'd Only Known..., it's getting over the mistake.
