When I started reading my latest review ebook, A Vision of Lucy, by Margaret Brownley (295 pages), I thought it was simply going to a damsel in distress type of book. I must say that though there is a damsel that is often in distress, this book turned out to be much more than that.God’s arms are around this unlikely couple as they discover the truth about long-held assumptions and the importance of forgiveness.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was a fun and interesting read. It had a lot of interesting elements and struggles that the characters faced. Learning to forgive and overcoming prejudice were huge themes in this book. Discovering God's purpose for your life and not falling into what other people believe you should do is another. seeing other people's side of the story also played a big part of the plot in this book.
Even though there are some serious topics, this book is a lot of fun to read. I really enjoyed getting to know all the different characters. Lucy is a very funny character who cannot keep quiet when she is nervous and finds herself in many different crazy situations throughout the book. There is also an element of suspense throughout the book and a mystery that has to be solved before it is too late. Even though this is the third book in the Rocky Creek Romance Series, you do not need to read the other two to understand this one. It is great as a stand alone book.
I received a complimentary ebook copy of A Vision of Lucy from Thomas Nelson for the purpose of writing a fair and honest review. I received no other compensation.
