SATURDAY CHRISTIAN FICTION CARNIVAL

Saturday, November 1, 2008

I love this carnival that Amy has started. Her question this week is:
Today's question is:

There are many outstanding characters in the books we read but often there's that one special character we remember for a long time. Sometimes it's because we relate to them, or maybe we were going through something similar to what they experienced. Or maybe they are just the sort of person we wish we were.
Who is the most memorable character in Christian fiction for you and why?

At first I thought this would be hard, then it just came to me . . .Charity O'Conner, of Julie Lessman's Daughter of Boston's series. She's the girl you can't stand in the first novel, A Passion Most Pure, because she such a snot, and then you fall in love with her in A Passion Redeemed. She's a girl who starts off with using her physical beauty to win men, and then realizes that it's her beauty within that really matters. I love her because I see her in my own daughter, and I see her in so many of our young girls today. Watching Charity's transformation gives me hope that my own child will see that she's more than just a pretty face, and has depth beyond her physcial beauty.

It's so nice to see a character change like that!

I love Julie's series - I liked Faith more, but Charity sure did the most changing :-)

What a wonderful character! I'm going to see if I can find the book on PaperBackSwap.
