Kurzbeschreibung

Missionary work in Africa was the most difficult and faithaffirming labor James Graham had ever faced, and warm, homey presents from a Good Samaritan back home gave him hope to carry on. But an injury halted his work and sent him home to Chicago.

There, James met Rachel Ashcroft, who'd sent those thoughtful gifts, and he was intrigued by the sadness that shadowed her features. Bringing the light back into Rachel's face gave him new purpose, but was this respite only temporary? Or could James release his past and open his heart to receive Rachel's gift of love?

Synopsis

After being injured in Africa doing missionary work, James Graham comes back home to Chicago where he finally meets Rachel Ashcroft, the woman who has been sending him care packages, and tries to bring happiness and love back into her life.

Von Ein Kunde

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not what I've come to expect... 6. November 2009
Von Etaner
Format:Taschenbuch
As Dee Henderson mentions at the end of the book, this was her second book ever written/published. It's a nice story about rich career women Rae pining for lost-to-accident-almost-fiancé-Leo and James the builder missionary on forced home leave. It has none of the excitement or drama of the O'Malley or Uncommon Heroes series - which I was also not expecting after reading the description. A nice afternoon read.

3.0 von 5 Sternen God is in control 23. Juli 2005
Von Illuminating Fiction - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
James Graham's dream is falling apart. A mysterious illness has ravaged his body, taking away his ability to continue building clinics on the African mission field. With pain consuming him, James is sent home to Chicago to recuperate.

When James arrives home, he finds Rachel (Rae) Ashcroft sitting at his mother's table. A Good Samaritan, Rae is dubbed Rachel the Angel by James's co-workers for the thoughtful parcels she sent out to the mission field. James is drawn to the woman whose face is shadowed by sadness.

His attraction to Rae is at first cautious, knowing he will soon return to Africa. But as Rae's group of friends involve him in their lives, the attraction can no longer be ignored.

Rae struggles with mixed emotions. She's loved and lost once before, and the sense of loyalty is still strong. Although attracted to James, she realizes there is little room in her overworked life for love, and can she risk her heart to another man?

GOD'S GIFT is a heart-warming story revolving around two people who face lost dreams. No matter what circumstances we find ourselves in, we can trust that God is in control, and Henderson shows this beautifully throughout this romance.

Dee Henderson first captured my attention through her O'Malley series, and later with the Uncommon Hero's books. I was eager to read her earlier work, and this, my first dive into her pre-O'Malley writing, didn't disappoint. If you're looking for a fast paced romantic suspense, like the O'Malley's or Uncommon Hero's, then you could be a little disappointed, but if you are looking for an inspirational romance, then this is the book for you.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A sweet romance with an intriguing storyline 2. April 2005
Von FaithfulReader.com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Dee Henderson is a familiar name to Christian fiction aficionados, with her bestselling "Uncommon Heroes" and "O'Malley" series dominating the sales charts. Perhaps with this in mind, Steeple Hill has brought back some of her older romance titles, including the enjoyable GOD'S GIFT. Here, Henderson manages to spin a sweet romance with an intriguing storyline that sidesteps the drippy sentimentality so often found in Christian fiction.

Henderson knows how to hook her readers by creating believable characters who lead interesting lives, and GOD'S GIFT has both ingredients. Thirty-five-year-old James Graham is back in Chicago fresh off six years in the mission field, but not by choice. A bug bite in Africa has left him with a severe, arthritis-like condition that comes and goes, leaving his joints stiff and swollen, and James finds he is unable to continue building clinics for impoverished communities until his body recovers.

The women in Henderson's novels usually have strong personalities and surprising careers, and those in GOD'S GIFT is no exception. Almost immediately, we meet James's mother, Mary, who raises Samoyeds, and the gorgeous Rachel Ashcroft, who owns a brokerage company and is working on her first book. Rachel fuels her intense workaholic lifestyle with grief over the loss of her fiancé, with whom she shared ownership of the company. She and her friends, Dave and Lace, have a comfortable, loyal "Three Musketeers" sort of friendship that will be the envy of every reader. The witty repartee and generous giving between the trio provide some enjoyable, often humorous moments throughout the book.

Soon, the threesome expands its circle to include James, who muses: "He'd never experienced anything like it, a camaraderie coupled with loyalty that went so deep as to be nearly unbreakable." A gentle goodness permeates the novel. There are no bad guys with evil intentions, just the battles fought with physical limitations, depression, disappointment, and grief. Few readers will not be able to relate to at least one of the challenges faced by the characters, and be absorbed by how Henderson plots the way they will meet them with faith and courage.

There are a few quirks to Henderson's prose --- she insists on calling women "ladies" or referring to Rae as "the lady" to the point that it becomes irksome, and repetition occasionally creeps in. Mostly, however, the story still clips along at a steady pace. The romance that is sparked between the couples is telegraphed from the very first pages, but in Henderson's capable hands, the knowledge of who will end up with whom doesn't lessen the reader's interest in pursuing the story.

And, the story is a good one. James's temporary stay in Chicago lengthens as he continues to relapse into chronic pain, and soon he despairs of ever returning to Africa --- or living a normal life. "God, I am so angry at this pain! Why, God? Why me? Why show me a future I would love to have and then cripple me so I can't have it?"

However, James is forced to rethink his situation in a surprising twist toward the end of the book, which exemplifies what true love is and what it sometimes will cost. Henderson's characters believe the bad things that happen to them are all part of God's bigger plan for their lives, and James and Rae will come to this realization through heartache, many tears, and the sacrifice of their dreams.

Henderson has matured as a writer since penning GOD'S GIFT, but fans of her "Uncommon Heroes" and "O'Malley" series will find this earlier book an enjoyable read, full of Henderson's trademark characters and well-integrated faith themes.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A lesson in friendship and love 29. Januar 2000
Von MommaFields - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
It amazes me how Dee Henderson can capture the essence of true and deep friendship and put it into words. God's Gift is not just about James and Rachel's quest to understand where God wants them to be, but a tribute to being the kind of friend that God calls us to be. Thanks for another great book, Dee!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Cute... 13. Juli 2005
Von Angela M Shook - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I read the book in the time span of a couple days, which should say the most about this book. Generally Dee Henderson's books are so gripping I can't put them down, but not so with this one. The story was cute as most love stories are, but it really lacked the WOW factor that the O'Malley series had. It's a good read on a Saturday afternoon if you don't have much to do, but it's not one that you'll forever remember like you do with her other books.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good:) 17. Mai 2005
Von Coppertop - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a really sweet and touching book, but lacks the punch of her later books - the O'Malleys and others. Its not a suspense and not meant to be, but a little disappointing when you know what she can get into a book now! But definitely a good afternoon read.
