Why is it that I always love the wounded character?
I loved David, scars and all. He made my heart sing because I knew a huge blessing was in store for him. David struggled with his addiction, but it was wonderful to see how his family rallied around him and helped. The way Brother Johnny took him under his wing and counseled him was beautiful. Isn’t this how we as Christian are supposed to act?
This author tapped into something that most Christian authors won’t do or aren’t able to do and that is being able to show the raw emotions of the characters without being graphic. She was able to show the passion and strong sexual attraction between David and Maggie in a very classy way. Also, her characters used obscene language, but it was done it in away that was not offensive. This story was a real “in your face” experience. No sugar coating anything, but done respectfully.
What can I say about Maggie? She was able to see what God saw in David. Most women would not have bothered to stick it out with someone they were not married to, but she was not only concerned about him as a boyfriend, but as a friend who looked beyond his faults and saw his needs. She will make an excellent wife and I would love to see another story with her and David.
Mississippi Nights is an exceptional story. It kept me on the edge of my seat and I loved how God worked to bring healing, reconciliation and forgiveness into the lives of the characters.
