On 7/2 bassgiraffe wrote: The story line was a but rough to get into but after a few chapters I was hooked. I wanted to see Meghan turn back to God and to trust her beliefs, morals. I did feel the story rushed it at the end but it was still believable to me. It actually sounded a bit like my love story at the end. The Bible ... The Story brings the Bible Study into prospective
