Raspberries and Vinegar by Valerie Comer

05/14/2021

An opinionated local-food advocate falls in love with the junk-food-loving reluctant farmer next door.
Love her or hate her, Jo Shaw doesn’t much care. She’s a woman on a mission, joining her best friends in buying a dilapidated farm to prove that growing most of their own food and living sustainably is possible. Too bad she’s a city girl with little knowledge and less tact. She’ll learn – both people and gardening skills – or she’ll know the reason why!

Zachary Nemesek is back in northern Idaho only until his dad recovers enough to work his own land again. When Zach discovers three helpless (right?) females have taken up residence at the old farm next door, he expects trouble… but nothing prepares him for Josephine Shaw. Is her war on junk food most shocking, or is it her war on mice? Or maybe, just maybe, it’s that his disdain for her dogged ways turns into reluctant admiration.

But romance? How can the country veterinarian fall in love with a woman who’s more tart than sweet?

"Stayed up all night reading!... such a captivating romance."
"Witty and enchanting!"

In simple words, the novel penned by a Christian worldview, a way of viewing the world separated through the facts shown in the Bible, is called Christian books. It implies a sovereign God who made everyone and everything; it believes we are responsible to God for our decisions, promises, and activities; it feels we require forgiveness and redemption and that it comes only through the person of Jesus Christ. There are two types of Christian Books: Christian fiction Christian fiction books are those books that overtly display elements of Christianity in the story, mixing things like prayer, conversion, church. Christian non-fiction Christian non-fiction is normally overt in its use of Biblical beliefs to explain an appropriate subject.
