As three friends who grew up in the same orphanage head off to college together, they each harbor a cherished dream. Libby wishes to become a famous journalist, Pete plans to study to become a minister, and Bennett wants to join a fraternity and have as much fun as possible. But as tensions rise around the world on the brink of World War I, the friends' differing aspirations and opinions begin to divide them, as well. And when Libby makes a shocking discovery about Pete's family, will it drive a final wedge between the friends or bond them in ways they never anticipated?
My take on this book:
Libby Conley, Pete Leidig, and Bennett Martin have on thing in common, the all grew up together in the same orphanage. Each one has hopes for the future as they head off to college. Libby wants to be a journalist, Pete plans on becoming a minister and Bennett just wants to have fun and find a place to belong. Can their friendships withstand the changes that they are making in their lives. When Libby realises that she loves Pete, how will Bennett fit in ?
While this book is the second in a series I had no problems of feeling lost. For me it took awhile to become interested in the story, but once I got past a certain point, the characters seemed to take off, making me want to know how things would turn out.
I am a fan of Kim Vogel Sawyer and have read several of her books, I love how she always weaves God's message into her stories. I would easily rate this book 4/5.
Even though I was provided a copy for review by Bethany House it in no way alters my opinion of this book.
