"For All Eternity"by June Foster

Book Description
 October 13, 2014
When Joella Crawford meets handsome accountant, JD Neilson, he's the man of her dreams—polite and clean cut with strong moral values. He's the perfect Christian man. Or is he?
JD Neilson falls in love with interior designer, Joella Crawford despite his father's command to marry a woman of his faith, the one true church, the Exalted Brethren. Yet despite his efforts to gain status in the afterlife, he can't attain the quiet peace he sees in Joella's life. Can he find the strength to forsake the teachings of his childhood to embrace The Truth? If he does, will Joella accept him or has he lost her forever?

My Review
"For All Eternity"by June Foster is the first book in the "Almond Tree Series" and once again she has written a great story. June Foster's book has a way of making you feel you are are actually reading a real person's story. You found yourself hoping and yes even praying for the characters while you are reading, (especially if you really get involved in the story lines like this reader does and with June's Foster's book it happens naturally right from the first few chapters.) I have read all of her books but one and it is on my to be read list.
When Joella Crawford and JD Neilson meet in an accident ( funny one involving a bicycle) they are instantly attracted to each other but there is a problem, well isn't that just like real life. lol
The problem is Joella is a Christian and believes in the one true God and JD belonges to the Exalted Brethren Church. I had never heard of this church before and even though the author doesn't go into great details about this church and it's beliefs she does give enough details to make readers understand the conflicts Joella and JD have without interrupting the storyline! 
This book shows how when you let someone believe something about you that isn't true just so you can get something you want how it doesn't turn out the way you wished.
This book is about forgiveness and love. It is full of surprises and it shows that life doesn't always have happy endings. Now with that last sentence I am not saying that JD and Joella don't have a happy ending nor am I saying they do. Guess if you want to know how it ends, you are going to have to read the book! I highly recommend all of June's Foster's books.
If you do read the book I know you will be like me and  anxiously awaiting book 2 in this series because it is about two of the other characters in " For All Eternity". 
"For All Eternity" is getting five stars.
I was given a copy of the book  "For All Eternity" for an honest review
