I have been doing a lot of reading lately. I do seem to do this in spurts.
I just finished "Grace", by Richard Paul Evans. He also wrote "The Christmas Box", and "The Gift".
It is a book that is written very simply. You are reading along, and don't realize that the story and characters have grabbed your heart. The story line is a teenage boy harbours a young girl who has run away from home. They fall in love, but it is an innocent love of youth. She hides in his "clubhouse" in his backyard, and he has quite a time trying to feed her and keep her warm through the cold weather.
It sounds simple, and yes, it is. But it is the simplicity of the story and the writing of the story that suddenly creeps into your soul.
I do highly recommend this book. It is a good read.
