Book Review: This Quiet Sky: A Novella
Title: This Quiet Sky
Author: Joanne Bischof
Publish Date: Nov. 2014 (Mason Jar Books)
Amazon rating: 5 out of 5 stars
My Rating: 3.8 out of 5 stars
A bittersweet love story that tells the tale of 16-year-old Sarah Miller and fellow student Tucker O'Shay. When Tucker took on the task of tutoring Sarah in algebra, she had no idea it would lead to a love that would stay with her for the rest of her life. A bond quickly forms between the two, but Tucker is unwell-- just how unwell Sarah is not sure, but as her feelings for him grow so does her fear that Tucker may not live to see all of his dreams fulfilled.
I enjoyed this little novella and felt the author told her story well. There were a few instances where I had a difficult time setting it aside! My only qualm, and this is often the case in the Christian romance genre, is that I felt the characters were a little too physically affectionate for Christians of that era. But, it wasn't enough to toss the whole book out, it was still a sweet story and a pleasant read.
