Saturday afternoon, I reclined in front of the fan with this week’s Novel Review pick, TOWARD THE SUNRISE. Written by Elizabeth Camden, this novella was pure joy. Ms. Camden’s use of the English language delighted me with the melodic beauty of her prose. Her eloquent voice told a Christian romance that not only was entertaining, but awe-inspiring. TOWARD THE SUNRISE was not a sizzling hot page turner-it was simplistic bliss. Happy Reading!
