I love this type of clean sweet romance novel.. Janet Ferguson has given us beautiful solid story-telling. one of the main characters Dylan Connor is a big flirt and thought to be a bad boy, he has Hollywood good looks without the arrogance and attitude. You will learn that Dylan has a heart of gold and he will melt yours. When he finds out that he is a father, due to a one night stand, he surprises Everyone by wanting to be a part of his son's life. He shows another side of his personality that wasn't expected. Ms Ferguson is a master of Community Development. There are several characters in this story, family, friends, and a few crazies. She introduces us to Christians that we can relate to. They don't live a perfect life, some have a past and many have problems. Yet through forgiveness, acceptance, and their faith the characters can be an inspiration to us all. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others. I was able to listen to the audio version and found it most enjoyable.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. The author is not afraid to touch on the hard issues or what scares people when it comes to Christian fiction - when there is a strong emphasis on Christianity and faith. Yet, it was done so tastefully, and without bias, it presented Christians in a realistic light. That light being we are ALL flawed, despite being Christians, and we ALL make mistakes. It is with faith and trust in our Lord that hope exists.
Which character – as performed by Naomi Karez – was your favorite?
Both Cassie and Dylan were strong, but I'd have to say Cassie since her thoughts and emotions were brought to the forefront.
Any additional comments?
As to the audio version, I particularly like the narrator's portrayal and felt that it brought Cassie to life. It also gave readers/listeners a personal connection to the characters, particularly Cassie and Dylan with the emotions we can hear, and in turn feel. It was definitely done well, including all those real-life awkward moments, and makes me want to continue this series in audio format rather than reading!
In all, Going Up South will make you want to meet the whole gang in Oxford. With themes of forgiveness, truth and finding a path, I think it makes for one very eye-opening read (or listen).
