Estelle - Zondervan is also a Christian publisher. And I never felt alienated or uncomfortable when I read From Moonlight on Low Tide. I think there’s a certain balance that authors can achieve that is realistic.

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - It’s interesting to me how religion seems to play such an important role in this book, or at least gets a lot of emphasis. While discussing religion or characters having firm religious beliefs never bothers me, it’s harder to digest when it’s in a preachy or too pushy way… and it kind of sounds like it may be the case in this book.

Still, the premise is pretty cute though so I may give it a read when I have time!
