This question I really had to think about. No I've never used a novel or non-fiction book to get a message across to anyone. However, I just finished reading a book yesterday that had what I thought was a good message for anyone. It is this book by Ruth Ann Nordin.
A homely woman who fears she will never marry becomes a mail-order bride. The man she comes for rejects her but another offers her marriage. She accepts, not believing love will result from the union. Love, after all, is for beautiful
women. Isn't it?
Mary was as plain as her name, and a character I think most women can relate to. It was nice to read a down-to-earth story, and I could really feel for Mary. Her story made me laugh and cry. The story draws you in from the very beginning. It was a heartwarming and delightful story. It helps us to see that inner-beauty is so much more important than outer beauty. I have yet to be disappointed by this author, Ruth Ann Nordin. In the sequel "To Have and to Hold" Mary's journey continues...
I enjoyed reading this book and awarded it 4****
