The only way Bethany and can elude the Sevens is to hide in the open, and blend in with other mortals their own age.

Will Bethany be called back to Heaven – forever – and face leaving the love of her life?" (

My commentary:
  • Before having sex for the first time (without protection), Xavier tells Bethany, "I'll be careful." As I read this, all I could think was, "Famous last words of every boy who becomes a teenage father."

Memorable quotes:
  • "That is when you need faith the most. Not when everything is going your way, not when you have much to be thankful for, but when there is darkness all around."
  • "If you try to use Christ as a solution to your problems, it will not work. You have to serve Him in order for Him to serve you." ~ Gabriel
