  • Another great story by Karen Witemeyer This story, for me, is special because of the great contrasts that are throughout the novel, but is made even better by the common desires of our two main characters The cover has a whimsical feel to it, like several other covers of Witemeyer s books, and there are some fun moments in the story But I took away even from the serious aspects of the novel Charlotte and Stone have suffered in their past, which causes them both to have emotional walls built up [...]

  • Wow I m proud to say that I have spent some well devoted and deserved time to a book worth reading.From the first page I was drawn into this wonderful story In any case Karen Witemeyer has been one of my favorite Christian fiction authors but lately I haven t been able to read her writing as much as I would like.In my opinion, A Most Worthy Pursuit was so vast in many areas and it was full of adventure I love it when stories include mostly the adventure in the plot The genius mix of adventure,fa [...]

  • Karen Witemeyer is one of my favourite authors This was very well written as usual but the plot was totally inconceivable The I discussed with my buddy, the we realised how weak the plot was 1 How did Charlotte s parents and Alexander s disappointments classify as evident reasons for her lack of trust These points were over flogged unnecessarily She never looked for her parents and they never looked for her She just banished herself to a marriageless, loveless life at 28 Sounds unbelievably pe [...]
