As a young girl, I loved Lori Wick, Janette Oke and Jane Austen.They were wholesome and lighthearted. In writing my own books, I realized how much they influence my own writing style. So I picked one up. Researching similar writers is one of the best ways to improve yourself and understand the market.
Written in a time around the turn of the century in Wisconsin, a young woman escapes her hometown because her life is in danger. With her grandfather’s recent death, she inherits a small place but someone else wants it. Although it sounds drastic, Ms. Wick does not make it the main plot in the story. It is a story of Christine finding God, a family and a husband. It is a lite weekend read and written in simple form for YA.
The only issue is it is full of a preacher’s sermons that don’t necessarily apply to the story. It slowed the pace of the story more than added to it. That being said, I would recommend to any young Christian girl.
