Guest Post from Michelynn Christy & Brandi Gabriel

Take a step back in time… If He Only Knew is a novel set in the late 1960s. The book deals with family relationships, loyalty, friendship, love, and loss. The main topic is somewhat controversial in nature, but we won’t mention what it is lest we spoil the story for readers. A similar book was written in a different genre under another name and the story really resonated with readers. We felt compelled to share this story with others who perhaps wouldn’t pick up that particular genre, and that is how this book came about. It may be set in the sixties, but the message is as relevant today as ever. Our prayer is that God will touch readers’ hearts and draw them closer to Him.

My Thoughts:

A good girl, a pastor's daughter no less, makes a mistake. Thinking she's doing the right thing she stays quiet, and keeps a secret that is killing her on the inside.

The characters were real and relatable. The story was believable and had a thread of suspense that I wasn't expecting, which was fun. My only complaint was that the faith thread woven through the story seemed very preachy to me. I did enjoy the story. It was fun being able to go back in time. Overall it was an enjoyable book.

Thank you for reading and reviewing. We pray that God will use this book for His honor and glory.

Congrats on the tour and thank you for the book description and giveaway. I appreciate it!

Thanks for being a part of the tour! :)

I find it funny that 1968 is considered historical fiction. I graduated from high school in 1967. I guess that makes me officially old. I would love to read this book.

I don't read many books based in the 1960s, so would enjoy this one.
