Felicia Murdock is young, beautiful, wealthy and to say the least a bit quirky! She had her life planned out as so many young women do, and felt it was her destiny to marry Reverend Frasier. For many years she had worked at changing everything about herself, her dress, activities, and personality to become the perfect pastors wife. The story opens as she is returning from the reverends marriage ceremony . . . to someone else!! She is of course crushed and devastated as she was positive it was the Lords leading for her to marry him. After being restrained by her own devices for so long, the real Felicia bursts out even more outlandish and unpredictable than ever before. The entire community is stunned at the beautiful, shapely young woman that has been hidden by her bizarre modest clothing, but not as shocked as they are at her unrestrained spirit! Totally unprepared for such a dynamo of a woman, Grayson Sumner is persuaded to spend time with her to cheer her up. She is constantly putting them in all sorts of dilemmas, problems, close calls, and even danger. Mr. Sumner finds himself overwhelmed by her enthusiasm and spontaneity but at the same time becoming increasingly attracted to her sincerity and innocence. He fights falling in love with her because his past holds some shady secrets that he feels would not only cause Felicia to reject him, but more seriously endanger her life. This book is hilarious, suspenseful and action packed! I guess I would have to compare Felicia somewhat to a Victorian Lucille Ball! I had such fun reading it. I found it very different than most Christian fiction novels! While I was entertained there were also many spiritual lessons within the story. One is how we often make our plans and put Gods name on them. Then we wonder why they dont work out! Another important lesson is that we are often afraid that if others know of our failures, they cant love or accept us. When the truth is if someone truly loves those failures wont matter. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:8 This was my first book of Jen Turanos and I look forward to reading more!

Great book. Very well written to appeal to younger children who are about to become "big sisters" or "big brothers": My granddaughter loved it!

I love this series! I am a Peter Pan fan anyhow, but the writers of this book creatively tied the original story with these books! I read it aloud to my five year old, he is too young for the book, but I enjoyed it so much I continued to read them. This book starts out slow but it gets better and is exciting to see how they tie in the original Petter Pan with this book.
