Once upon a time I didn’t ready ANY Christian fiction. I thought it was lame and preachy and boring. I have a degree in English–why would I waste precious reading time on something so–well–uneducated? Ha!
I’m currently reading “How Do I Love Thee?” by Nancy Moser. It’s a Christian novel about poets Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning falling in love. Elizabeth was a recluse for much of her life so a great deal of the book follows her inner life, thoughts and dreams from the setting of her room. And it’s wonderful! I wouldn’t recommend it if you like nonstop action, but if you enjoy a well-crafted, thoughtful story, jump right in. And yes, it’s literary in style and concept. There are references to all the literary stars of the day–Longfellow, Dickens and so many more. Tailor made for the Christian, poet, English major. Enjoy!
