Zondervan Review: The Garden Gate (Book 4 in the Threshold Series) by Christa Kinde #grow4christ

on February 1, 2014

About the Book:

The Pomeroys pull together in the aftermath of the storm that shook West Edinton—and Prissie’s faith—to its very foundations. Letting go proves difficult, and holding on takes all of her courage. With the encouragement of a brother who’s in on her secret, Prissie finds her feet. With the help of the bane who’s now a brother, she takes a stand. As spring comes to the orchard, a cryptic remark from Abner hints at West Edinton’s long-kept secret. A beloved aunt returns from overseas. A faded angel takes up residence atop the Pomeroys’ refrigerator. A treasured friend must say goodbye. While ranks of the Faithful rally to defend what’s most precious, Prissie discovers that angels aren’t the only ones who are Sent.

You may purchase a copy at Zondervan and Amazon.

My Opinion:

I will begin by saying that I had not read the three other books in the series before I started this one, and due to that I found this very hard to enjoy or get into, with that being said I’ll do my best to do a review.  I must admit I just could not get into the story or find myself relating to Prissie and her set of angels, that only she and her brother can see.  This may have been different had I read the other three or at least one of the other books but as it was I didn’t and so going on what I read I found the half of the book I read boring and I was completely lost.

I’m sure that this author is great, so nothing against her, and if I had known this was book 4 I would not have requested to review it, so I’m guilty as well.  I think this would be a good series for an older teen as that is what the series is geared for but as an adult woman I just couldn’t finish this – although my oldest daughter may be interested if she starts with book 1 and works her way through the series as it’s got a sci-fi theme to it with the angels and demons and spiritual warfare but overall I just couldn’t get into it as I had wanted.
