The Bachelor and Bachelorette have become a guilty pleasure for me during it’s last 3-4 seasons; however, I’d never heard of Emily Maynard Johnson before picking up this book and didn’t know much about her story and time on the shows. After reading the book, I feel like her story is like many of the other Bachelorettes, looking for love and approval in most of the wrong places. And while Emily recognizes this in herself during her journey and that something was missing from her life, she doesn’t delve into the Word and finding her security and true love in the Lord until the very last chapter. The book seemed to be lacking true depth and was just an overall telling of a very simple story - I just wish there were more details, especially of her walk now with the Lord, her family, and being a mom!
The book itself was an easy read, and I flew threw it within a few days! It’d be a perfect beach read, as it doesn’t require much thought. As much as I love Emily’s story of redemption and salvation, I wish it was more of a focus, so I could feel more confident sharing the book with friends.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
