A stellar debut, The Covered Deep possesses such incredible passion and prose that I couldn’t peel myself away from the pages. Brandy Vallance easily clenches a “Best of 2014” in the category of Christian Romance. Through a thrilling and often harrowing expedition to the Holy Land, love is tested, secrets revealed, and deceptions lurk. The Covered Deep boasts unexpected plot twists, diverse and compelling characters, as well as playfully witty humor.
From her quiet hometown of Portsmouth, Ohio, Bianca sets off on an adventure to find true love in a foreign land. Armed with a list of attributes, she is convinced that she will recognize her future husband the moment she lays eyes on him. Oh, he’s out there, but will she be willing to accept all of him and not just the parts that fit her mold. While treading upon sacred ground her faith will be tested, passions inflamed, and limits of forgiveness tested.
The Covered Deep’s many endearing qualities will win the hearts of readers. I thoroughly enjoyed how Bianca’s naïveté and her humorous euphemisms contrasted with London’s aristocracy. The importance of public perceptions and modesty are oft-mentioned throughout the book and perhaps it’s because these ideals have fallen so drastically, I find myself craving books that include them. Beyond an embrace or an impassioned kiss, you will not find any lustful drivel within these pages. What you will find is the searching, testing, and the resilience of the characters’ faith in Christ. Woven throughout the story are prayers and scriptures from which the main characters draw strength.
A perfect selection for Christian romance and history buffs alike, The Covered Deep by Brandy Vallance captures 5 out of 5 stars.
