Echoes by Robin Jones Gunn

Echoes by Robin Jones Gunn is a sweet Christian love story of the ending of Lauren Phillips and her fiancé and the grief that follows.  Lauren’s brother, Brad, set up her first computer in her living room plus shows her how to email and shows her how to meet others online and clues to meeting other Christians (God lovers).  Lauren through Brad meets KC and online they get to know each other.  After a year of “pen paling” Lauren and KC decide to meet. 
I liked this book though I almost didn’t get it because of my being leery of meeting people online and then thinking that you know them.  I am concerned with young people being so open online.  This book does bring out the dangers of online socializing though the story is about an online meeting.  The story is really about grieving of a romance while going on with your life.  It also discusses how a rebound date can be a disaster but life still is mostly good.  The story discusses how even if you do meet the right person it is still best to go slow and get to know each other well.  All in all I would recommend it to all aged girls and women.
I received this book from Waterbrook Multnomah for this review.
