As Adele would say, reading a new book by Francine Rivers feels like home. “It’s like a dream come true.”
“The Masterpiece” has her footprint in every page. The well-developed concept of the book, the complexity of each character, and the message of redemption going through the story are very distinctive in her writing, and we can see all of that in this book as well.
Grace seems to be perfect in the midst of all her imperfection, as usually happens with the main female characters this author cre ...more
