    I read this book as it was supposed to be all about dealing with intercultural issues, as the main character is raised in a remote location in an Asian country, and then tries to adjust to life in the U.S While the book starts out with some promise, showing how the main character had to make huge adjustments, it then deterioriated into a less than believable and not too well crafted love story.

    I was given this book many years ago and I never got around to reading it until recently I saw that it was set in Hawaii and waited until we were going on vacation there to read it I was a little disappointed that the setting was not a bigger part of the book The resort that Gabe s family runs could really be anywhere near a beach Otherwise, this was a nice, slow paced, gentle romance with strong Christian values Gabe is a great Christian man who happens to be single the kind of man every I was given this book many years ago and I never got around to reading it until recently I saw that it was set in Hawaii and waited until we were going on vacation there to read it I was a little disappointed that the setting was not a bigger part of the book The resort that Gabe s family runs could really be anywhere near a beach Otherwise, this was a nice, slow paced, gentle romance with strong Christian values Gabe is a great Christian man who happens to be single the kind of man every Christian woman dreams of but never can find in real life and his family pushes him to start seeing Lily and then he warms up to the idea and falls in love with her The issue of Lily s subservient behavior and unusual background was interesting and addedinterest to what could otherwise have been a standard, easy Christian romance view spoiler I liked the way the story didn t end with their marriage, but continued through their first year It was beautiful how Lily and Gabe ended up being perfect for each other and each one had their dreams come true hide spoiler The ending was very sweet

    I have really mixed feelings about Bamboo and Lace I recall reading it many years ago and liking it but when I re read it this last week, I felt so very conflicted The book is classic Lori Wick and maybe that is just my own issue I m conservative but felt this took conservatism to a new level, likely due to the Kashienese country and characteristics of its people women s eyes lowered anytime they were in a man s presence, loose fitting clothing imagine when a bathing suit came onto t I have really mixed feelings about Bamboo and Lace I recall reading it many years ago and liking it but when I re read it this last week, I felt so very conflicted The book is classic Lori Wick and maybe that is just my own issue I m conservative but felt this took conservatism to a new level, likely due to the Kashienese country and characteristics of its people women s eyes lowered anytime they were in a man s presence, loose fitting clothing imagine when a bathing suit came onto the scene , and .The book had its place when I read it in the mid 90s but reading now in 2018, I struggled I know there are many cultures like this even now, just the contrast was evenglaring after 20 years I was 15 ish then, lol So the book just seems to be one that offers different things based on when you read it This particular read, at this particular time, wasn t my favorite of Wick s

    I read this book because it was recommended to me a while back I really didn t care for it for many reasons I didn t like how the author stretched the book by saying the younger woman or the older man I didn t like how demeaning Lily s father was towards her How lily was so awkward with her prayers I personally struggled with a lot of the Hawaiian names, but that had nothing to do with the book being good or bad it was just a personal bother to me I think that the story line was over all i I read this book because it was recommended to me a while back I really didn t care for it for many reasons I didn t like how the author stretched the book by saying the younger woman or the older man I didn t like how demeaning Lily s father was towards her How lily was so awkward with her prayers I personally struggled with a lot of the Hawaiian names, but that had nothing to do with the book being good or bad it was just a personal bother to me I think that the story line was over all interesting though

    I had a very hard time staying interested in this book I honestly can t say why It s well written and the character development isn t bad But for some reason I never had a strong desire to pick it back up once I put it down I was over half way through before I found myself caught up in the story line and somewhat anxious to see what came next.
