The Crossing book 1
by Carrie Daws
-From The Back Cover-
For years, Amber traipsed around the Northwest avoiding the skeletons in her closet. Job-hopping every few weeks, she refused to let anyone get close to her as she slowly made her way east. As winter firmly plants itself across the Rockies, she decides to take a chance on a job at a logging company with a family different than any she's ever known before.
Watching the family interact creates more questions than answers for Amber. Feeling like she's entered the happily-ever-after written at the end of fairytales, she watches for cracks in the facade. Surely as the days pass, the play-acting will cease and the real family will emerge.
Or could she be wrong? Could they truly be genuine? Could Faye understand the trauma from her past or Peter think of her as more than just the winter office help? Could this family really hold the key to what she's seeking?
I enjoyed this simple sweet story a lot. Crossing Values is a book full of just that, Family Values. The Yager sometimes seems a little too perfect but then you realize that they are what every Christian family SHOULD be, they are simply living what they believe. They have had their trials just like the rest of us but they went to the right place for answers.
The author doesn't hide or play down her Christianity and its importance to every part of life. So often Christian authors write a book that is just a cleaner version of any secular book on the shelf. Not here. I will say that the author does NOT spend page after page repeating sermons which would have gotten tiresome.
This Book earned a 4 Bark Rating.

One word of warning, the Yager family's practical jokes and antics will leave you in stitches and you will think twice about letting any boys in your family read about them ;)
