Book Review of The Covering by Dana Pratola


Getting It Real!


The Covering is unabashedly a Christian novel with a clear salvation message, but without excessive jargon and preachiness. Ms Pratola found fresh and natural ways to present the message all wrapped up in an exciting romance. Gunnar is the perfect mysterious and dangerous hero, and Tessa’s love (and God’s) breaks through his hard shell to the love-starved man inside in delicious romance novel fashion.


Tessa and Gunnar are realistic and appealing characters, but I was surprised how much I liked the minor character of the pastor. He was particularly interesting, not at all the sappy stereotype of so many novels. My eyes popped open wide when he related his past to Gunnar. Now, that’s getting real with people!


Ms Pratola entertained me and also inspired me. I’ll be praying to be more like Tessa, sensitive to the pain in others, and like the pastor, willing to be totally transparent.
