Ok, I am going to say this right out front… THIS IS NOT A KIDS BOOK!!! This is a Adult-Christian-Romance-book. This book is not for younger girls for it does mention some adult stuff. My mom told me that since it is Christian romance it will not have any ‘Bleh!’ stuff in it, but it will mention some of the ‘Bleh!’ stuff.

I was allowed to read this book cause my mom said it was ok. Apparently a lot of Christian fiction mentions adult stuff, but does it’s not descriptive. So this book is not for younger girls, but instead this book is more for girls 15 and up (But only if your mom says it is ok).

Other than that… the book was… AMAZING!!! But there was a lot of violence in it, because this book is about Noahs Flood. I personally  found it fascinating and thoroughly enjoyed it. But since it is about the Flood that means a bunch of people… die. Soooooo this is a very, violent book, but very educational.

Over all, I really enjoyed this book even though it was a little bit more grown-up then I usually read, and my mom and I both think this book is a great book for older girls to read. (But ask your moms first!!!)


  • Christian romance?
  • Good book for older girls


  • This is not a kid or teen book
  • It is about Noah’s Flood

Marginalized by society and mistreated by her own family, Annah befriends a young man she’s never seen before. Shem is captivated by Annah’s courage, and he risks everything to help her gain her freedom. Trusting in the Most High, Annah marries Shem and joins her strange new family in their solitary faith that will ultimately separate them from an ancient world of amazing beauty and appalling violence–a world fast approaching the unimaginable catastrophe of the Great Flood. Out of this chaos, only eight people will survive. Their world is our world. Their future is our own.
