echoes, echoes, echoes

"Echoes" by Robin Jones Gunn is the third book in the Glenbrooke Series, that being said, the other two books are not necessary in order to read "Echoes".  The second thing you should know is that though this book's last printing is 2012, the original printing is 1996.  At first I was confused as to why Lauren needed to be taught how to use the web when she was in her twenties.  So, just remember, this is a book that originates in the 90's.  Lauren breaks up with her fiancee, so her brother gives her a computer to get her socializing with him more as well as the rest of the world.  As she comes to discover who she is rather than who Jeff (former love) wants her to be, she starts an online relationship with KC.  She needs to not only trust others, but learn when a man is a man who could love her soul and when that man is an ax murderer using the Internet to lure women into secluded places.  The real trust here is trusting God to tell her the difference. 
I hadn't read any of Gunn's novels, though I have heard of her.  I will have to add her to my list of staple authors.  This is a really good book.  It is a Christian book, but not preachy; God Loving.  The characters are clear, the plot well written.  I like it.  I received this book for free from Blogging for Books.
