Only Children Chase Sawdust // Blog Tour + Book Review

Today I'll be sharing a review of Only Children Chase Sawdust by the lovely Willowy Whisper! I've had the privilege of reading (and reviewing) many of this author's works, and I've enjoyed them all. :) On to the review!! 

~ Synopsis 

Their whole life turned to sawdust and blew away... 
Please don't leave me, Jacob. I need you. I know you're grieving. Maybe we all are. But you're chasing something you'll never catch . . . and we both know you won't come back alive.

~ Review 

Oh my goodness, what an amazing book. <3 <3 

To date, I have a read all but one of Willowy Whisper's published works, and I think I would have to say this is my favorite. The hurt, the angst, the romance, the sharing of the salvation message... Ahh, it was all so well-done and beautiful!! <3 

Jacob and Annie were such a darling young couple, but I guessed from the beginning that they would experience heartache... But I didn't expect all *that*!! (And that scene...when Annie knew he was hurting... *hugs them*)

The separation and various points-of-view were all amazing. I can happily say I connected with all the characters!! (Well...except the bad guys...but ya know...) I don't know that I could pick a favorite, but Jacob and Annie were both wonderful. :) And Akando!! I wasn't sure what to think of it him at first but... *spoilers* I loved him and you will too. 

The only con I can think of is one phrase that was used several times in the same chapter. It was a good one, but it was used numerous times and I started picking up on it. ;) Not bad, but a bit repetitive. Also, there is kissing and some violence (torture and killing), but it was all very well-done. :) 

All the way around, this was an amazing story! One I heartily recommend!! 

~ Favorite Quote. 

Without needing told, without Jacob's lead, Akando dropped to his knees and lunged into the throne room of Christ. 

**I received a free e-copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.**

  1. This sounds like a pretty good book, Faith! :) I've yet to read something by this author, but maybe I should read one of her books sometime. :)

    1. Her books are very good!! The romance is so sweet, and the Christian themes well-done. There is usually violence of some kind though.
