“Sarah McLean is a nineteen year-old girl who longs to become a wife and mother. The book chronicles a period of two years, in which she has to learn to trust her parents and God fully in their decisions for her future.”
Title: The Courtship of Sarah McLean
Author: Mr. and Mrs. Steven Castlebury
Genre(s): Christian Fiction
Romance Content: Nothing inappropriate; the main theme of the story is courtship and marriage, but it is portrayed in a Biblical and God-honoring way (no kissing, holding hands, hugging, etc between un-married couples).
Recommended age range: 10-100! 🙂
Okay, can I just say that this is an AMAZING book? It was sooo good, and had an accurate portrayal of Biblical courtship.
My parents have decided that courtship is the best way of action for us (their children) and I was happily amazed to find a good, sound book that shows this. It showed Sarah’s struggles and triumphs, which I thought was a great thing. I would not say that it was un-realistic in any way at all; I know many people who have the same standards as Sarah and her family. It was a blessing to see how Sarah and her siblings helped out around the house with a good attitude.
I appreciate the good message that this book gives; I have to say that it is the first book I have found like it (which is pretty sad).
