My review: The Covered Deep by Brandy Vallance
I liked reading The Covered Deep. Some of the characters endings I really liked and some characters ending I did not like. This is a clean read, a mystery adventure, romance, Christian fiction all rolled together to make a grand adventure.
The plot starts out by a contest by a rich British gentleman. The winners will get a trip to England and travel to the Holy Land.
Bianca Marshal age 25 is single, and choosy about it. Bianca dreams of meeting her soul mate. She is close to her father and he shows her the contest and gets her to enter it.
The setting for the book starts in Southern Ohio 1877. Then travels to London than onto the Holy Land.
Bianca meets the other contestant winners and she is intrigued with the historian. Things are started to hint that there is more going on then a group of strangers winning the contest and going on a trip.
Paul Emerson is a historian who won the riddle part of the contest. Bianca is very drawn to Paul from the start. Paul is also drawn to Bianca.
It also deals with repentance and forgiveness of sins. How much do you really believe on Christ being the Savior of the World? Do you believe and forgive yourself. The characters are tested on what they really believe.
I really enjoyed the descriptions of the Holy Land. You can see and feel the place how special and historic it is to so many people.
I would be willing to read another book by Brandy Vallance in the future.
I was given this ebook to read by Worthy Publishing for the purpose of reviewing The Covered Deep and being part of it's blog tour.
