This is the first book I've read from Liz Curtis Higgs, but it won't be the last! I love her style of writing. She writes in such a way that I felt as if I was standing on the sidelines as the story unfolded before me. It was also a fast read that would be perfect for reading on a cold winter's day snuggled up under the covers!
