The Sentence by Elaine Cantrell

Blurb~
How could he do it!  How could her father bring the guy who burned the church into their home for six months?  Yeah, it was an accident and her dad’s a minister, but if he wanted to save this man’s soul why didn’t he go to the prison to do it?  Spoiled and slightly judgmental, Rachel has almost as much to learn as their unwilling guest. 

Tifferz Take~
I found the plot of this story different and I was pleased by how it turned out! Rachel is upset with her parents for letting the man who burned their church to the ground live with them instead of going to jail. I found Rachel to be likable and I related to her very well. I could see her point of view and how she had some things to learn. I think most people make a quick judgement before they completely understand the whole situation like Rachel does.


Clint is a rough guy who has his own set of issues. When he moves in with the Amons family he makes some changes that are hard for him at first. Clint starts to learn a of new things and sees he does have options. This is a christian romance filled with learning of forgiveness, learning to come unto Christ and learning to love. I loved seeing how people can change. This story was a good reminder to not be quick to judge and that deep down everyone has good in them! I am wondering if Ms. Cantrell is going to write Bud's story. Bud is Clint's best friend. I felt like she set it up nicely. I would love to read it if you write it Ms. Cantrell.

I have to say I loved Mrs. Jones. I think everyone needs a Mrs. Jones in their lives. A lovely romance that inspires! I will be on the hunt for more from Ms. Cantrell.

 The one thing I did find that was the time frame was not always consistent. Rachel and Clint would at different times reference an event as weeks ago when it was months ago.

FYI~ this contains one swear word and reference to sex  with no details.
