It was a very sweet book and was fun to be reminded of the other O'Malley Books I read years ago. I just may read them again. Life has a lot of ups and downs that we will never understand the "why" of God allowing bad things to happen to good people, but we can allow God to carry us through and become better or blame God and become bitter.
I read several reviews of this book that say it is not really good. This is not the case. While this book is not suspenseful like Dee Henderson's other books, it is still interesting. Since this book is only 154 pages it does not really have time to get too boring. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction.
If you've read the entire O'Malley series, you need to read Jennifer to complete the circle. However, if you haven't, definitely read the series, but start with Jennifer. It is written as a prequel, and if you've read the rest of the series, then you know how it ends, and you will have to struggle to read the book. If you are just looking for a beautiful love story, along with a good cry, read Jennifer for a nice weepy afternoon. Dee Henderson writes quick, easily read novels, but Jennifer is definitely a novella.
The theme of Christianity and the desire to know and love God runs through them all. Each one I've read has encouraged me to be a stronger Christian, and lead a better life. I would recommend it to Christian women of any age, or as a gift to someone, you think might be thinking of becoming a Christian.
