Pequena biografia
Lori Copeland was born on 12 June 1941. She had a relatively late start in writing, breaking into publishing in 1982 when she was already forty years old. Over the next dozen years, her romance novels achieved much success, as was evidenced by her winning the Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Award, The Holt Medallion, and Walden Books' Best Seller award. She has been inducted into the Missouri Writers Hall of Fame.

Despite her success in more mainstream romantic fiction, in 1995, she decided to switch focus. Her subsequent books have been in the relatively new subgenre of Christian romance. She has also collaborated with authors Angela Elwell Hunt or Virginia Smith on a series of Christian romance novels.

Lori and her husband of over forty years, Lance, live in Springfield, Missouri. They have three grown sons, three daughter-in-laws, and six grandchildren, and two great-granddaughters. She and her husband are very involved in their church, and active in supporting mission work in Mali, West Africa.

Book 1 of 3.

When I picked up the book, I assumed it was a Christian Romance. I was wrong. It is a modern Christian mystery without any crime. There is no murder, not robbery, no crime. Someone is entering unlocked homes and rearranging the furniture!

I just gave another one-star rating so you know what that means. It's review time.
I had seen this book around on Hoopla quite often and borrowed it while it was a bonus borrow. It started out decent but then went down from there.
I felt that the time period was completely wrong for this book. The protagonist seemed to think that she lived in today's society as opposed to sometime in the 1800s. She wore boys clothes and tried to do the tasks of a male.
Another thing that bugged me was that she was engaged. She lived under the same roof as her fiancé for weeks and they never get married until the very end. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this was a huge no-no back in the day.
And speaking of Nicholas, there was no way they could ever be a couple. They did not talk the whole book and when they did, he was acting as a father would (Nicholas is old enough to be her father by the way) by correcting Faith's behavior. And then suddenly Faith and Nicholas realized that they were IN LOVE. Nope. Not buying it.
Nicholas's mother drove me insane. There comes a point when someone has to stand up for themselves. This book basically had the message that God wants you to be a good Christian and lay down and take what others throw at you. Nicholas and Faith did whatever Liza asked, no matter how unreasonable. Nicholas is in his 30s and his mother still controls his life as if he were 10 years old. Nicholas rarely stood up for Faith when his mother was being a jerk to Faith. And someone please tell me when you can honestly threaten to tan the hide of grown adults. And then tell Liza the same answer.
I admire Faith for wanting to open a school for the blind, however, once a woman was married, she was expected to stay at home during this time period. I highly doubt everyone would have been fine with her starting up her own school.

I know this review is a bit of a jumbled mess, but so was the book.
