The book is Christian fiction but on the light end of that spectrum. Going to church is mentioned but we don't get long pages of sermons or prayers on every occassion. Rather, people mention God when it is natural to do so.
I was captivated by the book and really felt for Lillian. Somehow though the bad guy end of this story just didn't seem to fit. I don't quite know how to explain it--there were plenty of clues early on that what ends up happening would happen, it didn't come out of the blue, but I guess I was a lot more interested in who Lillian was and how she dealt with the loss of her family than I was in how her family came to be lost. That's about all I can say without a spoiler. Still, I'd recommend this book.
