Leaving Oxford Reviews
My first but not my last book by Janet Ferguson
This was a very inspiring story with lots of returning to the faith in God that you somehow lost in living your life. A very lovely story about a young lady that has had some completely devastating losses in her life, but has found her way back to her faith and a circle of Christian friends.
This is not a preachy book, but has a couple of significant bible verses that are used in meaningful spots. This is a very clean and touching romance that I woul ...more
Janet Ferguson’s novel Leaving Oxford is sweetly southern with characters who feel like friends and a plot that immediately engages. As Sarah Beth’s story is revealed by layers, you not only see her; you also see the grace of God.
Sarah Beth LeClair is honest and compelling but also just plain adorable. Jess McCoy is just plain hot. And Gingie the dog is an adorably hot mess. And I can’t forget to mention precocious little Katie with her sassy southern drawl. Or her hunky widowed dad Nick. Or Jil ...more
I really enjoyed this book. It's nice to read a book where a main character deals with anxiety.
I'm always amazed when I read a book, I'm so enthralled by it that I go search for other books by the author and find out it was their debut novel. That is the case with Leaving Oxford by Janet W. Ferguson.
"Growing hurts, but we can look back afterward and see that the change was worth the pain." (263)
With a story of leaving behind a life of sin, to a life with God in control, Leaving Oxford is Christian Fiction with the heavy emphasis on the inspirational aspect. That's not to say it's preachy ...more
I want to read this book because it will give me more information about Christianity and I hope I'll read it withe pleasure
This was a book I’d definitely recommend. Sarah Beth is the main character and she leaves CA after some traumatic things happened to her. She went back to her roots in Oxford, Mississippi and is teaching some classes at the college along with working long distance at her old job in advertising in CA.
She meets the football coach from the college and they are attracted to each other, but the storyline isn’t just boy meets girl and everything is happily ever after.
I love a contemporary romance that I can really sink my teeth into. Especially when it's well written. And that perfectly sums up this first novel in Janet Ferguson's Southern Hearts series. By the time I got to the end of this novel, these characters truly felt like friends. I was totally invested in their stories - even the secondary characters like Nick and Jill - and I can't wait to see more of them in the books to come.
The romance is tender and mature. I love a guy who knows when a girl's w ...more
