One a verbal from a sister in the faith who was disappointed in some of the language in the book.
I wasn't sure how my more conservative friends would view it and I respect their desire not to have language they disapprove of. I wondered how a woman pastor would go over, but haven't heard anything about that.
Here is another from someone not into religion - and someone I don't know:
4.0 out of 5 stars Different from my usual fare, October 8, 2012 By Que Barbara "barbvee" - This review is from: Like Sheep (Kindle Edition)I'm not one to read books about religion but am someone up for a good mystery. It shouldn't be a surprise that this book is heavy on religious content since the main character is a pastor. All of the quoting of scriptures, questions of faith etc are woven into the story in such a way that it is all very interesting and not off-putting for someone who doesn't want to come near anything hinting of religion (at least in my opinion).
The characters are well drawn, the descriptions of Kansas are vivid, the mystery is a good one and I didn't catch on to who-dun-it until near the end.
This is a story of faith, blooming where you are planted and perseverance. It's also a really good mystery too!
I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.
I LOVE HEARING HONEST RESPONSES WHATEVER THEY ARE.
