Book Review: Wildwood Creek by Lisa Wingate

Wildwood Creek

Wildwood Creek

I read Wildwood Creek faster than I thought. This book captured my attention right from the start. Usually, it takes me 2-3 chapters to get into it and get my bearings with knowing the characters and getting excited about the plot.

The book switches between two plots: one found in 1861 and one present day. Both heroines have love interests and their own personal demons holding them back. The present day character is drawn to the truth about the other’s true story.

As the plot continues throughout the book, finding out what the author would reveal next compelled me to read another chapter. I was especially curious about the character from the past.

While I cannot personally relate to the plights of either characters, I did find them interesting and wanted them both to find their hearts’ desires.

Is Wildwood Creek for you?

While this was written by a Christian author, the style of the book only lightly touches on issues of faith. If you want a book that is overtly Christian in content (or evangelistic), this might not be the book for you. If you want a positive, suspense-filled romance novel, give this book a try.

As a mom, I wouldn’t recommend this book to my middle-school-aged daughter. She is a voracious reader and wouldn’t have a problem with zipping through a book like this much faster than I, but some of the themes (from realities of the 1861 character) are too intense for my daughter. The author doesn’t go into great detail (which, for me, is a relief), but I will wait before recommend it to her.

Note: I was given a free copy of this book to review from Bethany House Book Publishers. My opinion is my own. Unlike a biased view of my kids (the best in the world), the review is my honest thoughts and reflections.
