Faithful in Love (Cliff Walk Cousins)
The love story of Faith Davenport, the wealthy daughter of a New England charity family, and Nico d’Amici, a child of Italian immigrants, isn’t just a story of star-crossed lovers. It isn’t just a mystery. It isn’t just a Christian romance. It’s all of these things and a little more, one of those rare books that become more than the sum of its parts.
And I loved it.
I have to confess that Christian romances aren’t usually my cup of tea, but this one hit the balance between the two genres perfectly. There wasn’t so much focus on Faith and Nico’s love for one another that God was all but forgotten, but neither did the story become little more than an attempt to moralize to the readers. Instead, the faith of all the characters gave them depth and maturity often lost in other books. Even innocent Faith was clearly a woman rather than just a hapless girl in the grip of her first affection.
My one complaint is that I wish the secondary characters could have had a little more depth. As it was, they felt like caricatures rather than people in their own right.
