I wanted to give this book five stars purely because of the importance of its subject matter fighting sex trafficking and forced prostitution I saw the book recommended on a blog that I enjoy so I figured I d read it although these days I do generally try to avoid romantic fiction Christian or not It s set in the late 1800s in Michigan and I did find the historical background of the story uite interestingI ve been trying to figure out what was wrong with the writing and I think it comes down to this There s no subtlety The characters are predictable the very very very bad villian the heroine who happens to be gorgeous with long flowing hair who is determined to solve the problem and protect her purity and chastity at the same time the hero who isn t such a hero at the beginning but begins to see the light and takes his place in changing the world etc etc There was too much of the I really find her sexually attractive but my mama taught me better so I m going to wrench my eyes away from her bosom even though I want to look longer kind of talk for my taste I m really not exaggerating here either that kind of blatant talk is all through the book It s telling when even though I agreed with everything the characters were saying in terms of chastity and integrity I still was annoyed at them and just wanted them to be a little real and nuanced I recently read an Alexander McCall Smith book who is NOT a Christian writer In it one of the characters who is happily married sees an old girlfriend of his and fights to push back down images of their lovemaking Then McCall Smith writes It was a vision sent by Eros who does not ask our permission for his whisperings This entire passage is far effective at advancing the cause of chastity than the full on assault of Unending Devotion I doubt that was McCall Smith s agenda when writing the book but it s the lesson I learned from it none the lessGood fiction doesn t have to sermonize to teach This book tries too hard to teach and conseuently fails both in teaching and even in being than a moderately enjoyable story to read
