This is a story with a little bit of everything. Though it is Christian literature, it is a very compelling story line that anyone can enjoy. It's a sweet love story a number of characters having some very dark, perhaps tragic secrets that we slowly learn about. It's easy to get immersed in the story and become very attached to the characters. The main character is dealing with anxiety, and the author portrays this in a very real way. It adds to the suspense as we slowly find out exactly what ha ...more

When I began reading Leaving Oxford, I wasn't sure if I'd like it. I didn't embrace the characters right away, and the plot seemed to move a little slowly. At one point, I looked down at my Kindle and saw that I'd only read 11% of the book, and I nearly gave up. I'm so glad I didn't!

Sarah Beth (5 star southern name) suffers from anxiety. Jess dreams of coaching in the NFL.
I love the way the author unfolded Sarah Beth's story. I also liked how Jess came across as "real" and had doubts about a future with Sarah Beth.
I was invested in the secondary characters. There were bad guys (and ladies), sweet 4-5 year old girls, strong Christian friends, unlovable dogs, and so on. This was a well done contemporary romance novel. I look forward to reading the next in th ...more
What a fantastic story with so much truth and reality the moment you start reading it. Wow! Can’t wait to start reading its sequel “Going Up South”. The characters with their fears and challenges made this book very hard to put down. Thank you Janet Ferguson for sharing your talents! Blessings!
I want to read this book because it will give me more information about Christianity and I hope I'll read it withe pleasure

Sarah Beth LeClair has returned to her hometown to find healing after a traumatic accident. Even though she has had more than her fair share of heartache, Sarah Beth keeps putting one foot in front of the other.
Jess McCoy may have missed his shot at going pro as a player but he has embraced coaching and aims to make his way to the top.
Wonderful book, I highly recommend it!
