Review of Carrie Daw's Crossing Values and GIVEAWAY!

Picture and synopsis from Carrie's page on Christian Women Affiliate Review Crew


Christian romantic fiction that focuses on emotional and family healing.
For years, Amber traipsed around the northwest avoiding the skeletons in her closet. Job-hopping every few weeks, she refused to let anyone get close to her.
As winter plants itself firmly across the Rockies, she takes a chance on a job at a logging company with a family different from any she’s ever known.
Watching the family interact creates more questions than answers for Amber. Feeling like she’s entered the happily-ever-after written at the end of fairytales, she watches for cracks in the façade.
Surely as the days pass, the play-acting will cease and the real family will emerge.
Or could she be wrong? Could they truly be genuine?
Could Faye understand the trauma from her past or Peter think of her as more than just the winter office help? Could this family really hold the key to what she’s seeking?

my review:


Wow this book was wonderful. If you are looking for a quick, inspiring read this is it.  Good Christian Valeus at their best.   It shows you how GOD directs  your paths no matter what your situation.  Amber was a lost soul, and a truly hurting person, but GOD ordered her steps and her life ended up a true fairy tale.  She ended up meeting the Yager family.  They are a very unique family and even though they had experienced a tragedy, they still had a strong faith in GOD.    This shows that even though you are a Christian, GOD didn’t promise that you won’t have heartaches and troubles. It is how you respond to those heartaches that matter.   I cannot wait to read the next book in this series.  I hope it is as inspiring as this has been.  This book will stay with me for a long time to come.

Carrie Daws did an excellent job with this book.  I would highly recommend this book.  I give it Five Stars.    I did this review for CWA and got my book from Carrie herself.

About Carrie
Over the years, God rewrote Carrie’s dreams to include being a stay-at-home mom and a writer. Originally writing weekly devotions as a way to share what she learned with women from various military bases, Carrie decided to enroll in the Christian Writer’s Guild. While there, seeds were planted and cultivated.
After almost ten years in the military, Carrie’s husband medically retired and they now live in central North Carolina with their three children. Besides writing fiction novels, she stays busy with homeschooling, working part time, and volunteering within two military ministries.
More than anything, Carrie strives to write clean fiction, happily-ever-after stories that gently advocate Biblical values and truths. She says, “I didn’t want to be embarrassed for my young daughter to pick up any of my books. I also didn’t want to be mortified if her life began to echo the activities of the lead character within my story. I believe the end result is books that not only provide some spiritual insight, but ones that reinforce accountability among unmarried men and women, healing from past hurts and families uniting in difficult circumstances.”

  2. Oh my goodness there are so many reasons to want to read this book. Amber is searching and searching for something missing in her life. I want to know if she finally finds it and when she does, where does it take her. Does she come to know Christ? Plus, I love a good Christian fiction romance!
