I am first intrigued by the title and it keeps me wondering why is it titled Mocked by Faith? Is this a pro-faith or anti-faith book?
At first glance, I would never have read this book, but when I open it and started reading, I find myself engross in the story and I read every word in it.
This book is masterpiece of Michele Richard and is a story about alexia, who taught she’s a failure in her family when at the age of 18, she still doesn’t find a fiancé when other girls in town, even her best friends Madison and Ginger are betrothed at the age of 16.
Everything changes when a couple from England, Mr. and Mrs. MacNear came and ask her parents for her, they agreed but Alexia became flabbergasted when she knew that Justin (groom-to-be) disobeyed their rules and tried to find love outside their community and he’s currently in a revirgining retreat. And they’re married not having the chance to see each other first, and just then they realize that the very thing they’re searching for is the person they’re marrying.
This book is definitely a love story with emphasis on faith, husband and wife, family and friends.
The plot is unique, I just don’t know if there’s really a so called community like this that exist or just a product of the author’s wide imagination.
Mrs. Richard writes fluently making her work engaging and a fast-read. I hadn’t put this book down since reading it. I love how she presents the characters and develops them. I appreciate the proper timing when and adversaries come, and the right twist and turns.
I’m just a lil bit stunned at the end, when the story ends, or the right term, I guess, is another chapter or series should start. It’s a cliff-hanger..:O
I must admit though, that I enjoyed reading the marriage theme. For it opened up a lot of things for me, like what it would be like and the consequential responsibilities.
I recommend this book to everyone who have lost a child, having family problems, and enjoyed reading books of true love and base on faith. Enjoy!
