Captivating -- Book Review

I just read Captivating by John Eldredge...best known for Wild at Heart.  And, yes.  This is the "woman's version"!



Honestly, I did think the book was a bit fairy-tale'ish, but still, I could relate to many of the feelings described in the pages.  I also, believe that it does give a great over-all explanation of what a girl wants.  Seriously.  You just have to be willing to delve deeper while reading.  Warning:  This book can be rather emotional at times.

“Every woman was once a little girl. And every little girl holds in her heart her most precious dreams. She longs to be swept up into romance..." 

 And, there is no doubt men could learn from reading this book.  I mean, what gal doesn't want a bit of romance now and again?!?


Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

Several of my friends say that reading "Wild at Heart" was one of the best things they ever did for their marriage! I can imagine that this book would be the same way. I'll have to add them both to my book list! Thank you for posting!

Hope you have a great week!♥

How wonderful that they've created both a woman's and a man's version!
