The Thorn Keeper
by Pepper D. Basham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Writing this review is hard because what does one say about a book that touches the heart so deeply, expresses Gods message so clearly, and may bring a tear or two! This is that kind of book! It is truly beyond my ability with words to describe.
Catherine and David become family to the reader, as we struggle with them in their new found relationships. The reader feels the emotions and heartaches of the characters very strongly. Catherine has her new relationship with Christ which totally changes her. This part of the plot is so powerful and sweet! David is a wonderful hero who goes through personal changes and some incredible difficulties that only serve to make his character stronger.
The relationship between the two of them will have you sighing and your heart in knots. The romantic tension is indescribable, and the way they grow together is splendidly done. It all builds up to beautiful and breath taking crescendo!
A magnificent read that pulls the strings of one's heart, refreshes one's spirit, portrays redemption so movingly, and leaves the reader pondering the powerful message weeks after the novel is done. A must read!
I was given this book by the author for my honest opinion which I have written.
