DARK RIVER LEGACY by B. J. Hoff
Three things I appreciated most in the story: 1) Freddi realized - "Gradually I began to realize that Christ had been my Savior for years - but I hadn't wanted Him as my Lord. He had never really been first in my life." How true that is for many of us. We all need to reach the point where we can say, and mean it, that if we lost everything we would still have Someone "at the very center of my life who would be enough".
2)Jennifer realized - "I don't have to do anything great or fantastic or newsworthy or world-changing. . . just as long as it's pleasing to you Lord... just let me be pleasing to you." and 3) I learned to really appreciate these words to a great hymn, "On Christ the solid Rock I stand; All other ground is sinking sand. . . All other ground is sinking sand."
Get ready for a suspenseful love story, with an ending that will literally "sweep you away" as the floods come and threaten the town. It was terrifying for awhile, very sad for awhile, very tense for awhile, but all ended well. Jump in and enjoy!
