My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Overview

This lovely 4th book of the Miller’s Creek Series gives the back story to the lives of Mona Beth and Bo Miller that begin in book 1 and are mentioned in books 2 and 3. Any of these books can be read stand alone, but you will appreciate them more if you read all of them. Cathy Bryant once again hits the ball out the park with her amazing ability to write a story that is wholesome, spiritually challenging, entertaining and relaxing, all while addressing hard issues in a God-glorifying approach. This story was hard to read because it didn’t have the fairy tale ending I wanted. However, it was a story that could be real – one that grabs the heart of the reader and shows them how God redeems everything in our lives for His glory.

The Readability

The beauty of Cathy’s writing is that she is able to write about hard things in a very easy to read format. The story sucks you in so fast that you don’t even realize your heart is being challenged with theological questions through out the story line. I was able to read this story in 3 hours sprinkled with plenty of interruptions…er, I mean breaks! *giggle*

The Highlights

As I have already mentioned above, the highlight for me is that Cathy writes a story that could happen (mostly like has happened!) and doesn’t try to sugar coat life in general. There is raw honesty in the characters but presented in a way that does not require the reader to read raunchy scenes to get the whole picture. You are able to get the depth of pain without having to read it in detail. I have read this whole series without feeling guilty for what I have read or walked away discontent with my own life.

The Downside

The downside is that the books ends! However, it sounds like there are more to come…so I’m okay with it! Oh, and you’ll need a tissue box close by as you read this book. So the downside is that it’s not a good book to read with mascara on.

The Recommendation

Pilgrimage of Promise is a great novel for those moments when you need a “light” read that doesn’t require much thinking. It’s a good fiction book that would be appropriate for an older teen to a woman of any age.
