Grass Valley, CA (PressExposure) July 03, 2009 -- They meet on a beach while vacationing in Maine. Sheâs an artist from California; heâs a writer from Oregon. They each have their own private reasons for being on that particular beach on that particular August day, and romance is the last thing on their minds.
But life has other plans...and when fate offers you something thatâs better than what you dreamed of, you take it.
Or do you? The decision to begin a relationship is not an easy one for either Melissa or Kraig; each has valid reservations about trying to turn a pleasant week at the beach into a lifetime commitment. But it seems they just canât walk away from what is meant to be.
Touching the Brilliance of Sunrise by Lisa J. Lehr is the book that a lot of people seem to be looking for. While itâs âofficiallyâ classified as Christian fiction romance, it refuses to be forced into a mold. Itâs simply good literature--entertaining, extremely well written, and infused with uplifting messages about faith, love, and second chances. Itâs not preachy or overbearing; the characters are realistically, likeably imperfect, talk like real people, have real needs, make real mistakes, and learn really hard lessons.
Travel writer Teresa L. Carpenter has this to say about Touching the Brilliance of Sunrise: âThis is some of the best writing Iâve come across. It had me spellbound as much as the Left Behind series. This book rocks. I canât get enough. Lisa, your writing sings and is sheer poetry in motion.... Golden... Beautiful.â
The book seems to be striking a chord with readers looking for a clean, wholesome romance story thatâs âfeel-goodâ yet relevant for today. The author is already being pressed for a sequel--but sheâs not yet commenting on that possibility.
