Wow! This was a first novel for the author, Joanne Bischof. Lonnie and Gideon, at the young ages of 17 and 22, start their married life with many obstacles. The reader should be prepared for poignant scenes where each character struggles mightily to figure out the reasons for their God-given paths. I found myself angry with Gideon but later giving him credit for learning how to handle being a new man. Give this book a try – you will react to it and remember it.
