WARNING: this review probably won't be much more than a total gush-fest. You have been warned! ;)
How do I even begin to describe all the things I loved about this book?! Well, for starters it's TONI SHILOH! She is one of my all-time favorite authors, and I know without a doubt that I would be enthralled with a phone book or appliance owner's manual if Toni was the one writing it! Like all of Toni's books these characters grabbed me at page one and wouldn't let go! I totally fell for Micah last year when he first appeared in the previous book, Finding Love, and I was beyond excited when I heard that book three was his story, I LOVED HIM SO MUCH in this book. He is such a kind, patient, generous, caring, protective, amazing man, and best of all he loves Jesus with everything in him! I'm serious, ladies! Micah Campbell is total swoon-worthy book boyfriend material (But then so are ALL of the heroes Toni writes!)
I instantly liked Belle, my heart broke for all she had been through and I found myself wanting to give her a hug and be her friend! Even though I haven't gone through anything even remotely similar to what she did, I could really relate to her personal struggle between wanting to dress modestly and not attract attention to herself, but at the same time wanting to wear clothes that were flattering, and pretty, and at times wondering if it is even possible to have both.
The faith story in this book deeply touched my heart and I felt myself growing in my faith right alongside the characters!
I loved everything about this book SOOOO MUCH, and was in a state of pure bliss every moment I was reading it! Getting to visit all my old friends again was so awesome. I love Maple Run, it's one of my favorite fictional towns and I can't wait for my next visit!
Overall, I adored every moment of Enduring Love and highly recommend it (as well as all of Toni's other books!) to each and every fan of Christian contemporary romance. Read it, you won't be sorry, but be prepared to set aside plenty of free time before you begin because you will be swept away and glued to the page until you turn the final one!
Enduring Love has a spot on my list of favorite reads of 2018, and I am eagerly anticipating Nikki and Shorty's story!
I received an ebook copy of this book from the author and publisher which did not influence my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
