Reviews “I do thank you for letting me read this story. I especially like the fact that though there's considerable violence, with a man who abuses women, and repeated acts of vandalism, the biblical teaching it presents is even more compelling.”
Elizabeth Sherrill, writer and editor for “Guideposts Magazine” for fifty-six years.
Co-author of The Hiding Place, The Cross and the Switchblade and God's Smuggler. Author of All the Way to Heaven, her story.
"...for those who enjoy Christian or sweet romance, this story of an
alpha male pursuing a reluctant lady should fill the bill."
When I started reading this newest book of Gail Pollotta’s I didn’t stop till I had it finished. [...] It was interesting and a real pleasure to read.
Suddenly Cammie noticed that the bright red sun sat on the surface of the water melting into the sea like butter. Soon the boat turned, probably to head back to dock.
But Cammie didn’t want the cruise to end. She wondered if the other passengers were thinking the same thing, because the deck grew so quiet she could hear the sea sloshing as a boat pulled alongside them. It was a gondola with a young couple and a gondolier, who wore black pants, a white shirt with blousy sleeves, and a big red cummerbund.
Cammie got up and rushed to the side of The Shrimp Boat.
"Oh my, look at that," she said.
The boy and girl seated at the end of the boat underneath the soft glow of a lantern waved at her. When she threw up her hand to return the gesture, she leaned across the rail, sliding forward.
But Vic pulled her back with his strong arms. For a few moments he held her close to him. "Whoa, take it easy."
She felt safe and comfortable being next to him, but pain from the depths of her soul screamed that she couldn’t be hurt again. She jerked away and smoothed the wrinkles in her brown pants. "I don’t know how that happened."
Vic laughed. "I do. You just bent over and started to fall into the ocean until I caught you."
There was his big ego again. Not only that, he was being sarcastic. Well, she didn’t have to put up with his superior attitude much longer. "All right, go ahead and enjoy yourself, make fun of me."
Vic chortled, but before she could add that she hadn’t taken any pleasure out of entertaining him by putting herself in harm's way the boat pulled up to dock. It was just as well.
