Life can be very difficult, sometimes challenging not only one’s concept of what’s fair, but also one’s faith. Victoria grew up with her aunt in Chicago. Hoping for a better life than slaving as a seamstress, Victoria takes up teaching in a small town. Little did she know that she was being cheated and set up for ruination and more. Packed onto the train to Chicago, she returns home feeling disgraced.

Adam grew up in a small town. He worked with people as well as being a minister. When a friend recommends him for a job as pastor of a wealthy church in Chicago, he’s torn as to whether he should accept. Little does he know that his new role would challenge not only his faith, but also his life. Victoria and Adam meet by chance on the train to Chicago. Their lives continue to intertwine until fate brings them together for life. The bond that attracts them is tenuous at first, as, for differing reasons, the two wonder about the power of attraction that pulls them together. But there is a stronger bond from higher up with greater plans than just Victoria and Adam.

A classic love story? Perhaps. Darrell Case’s Christian romance novel, River of Fire, has a thrilling plot that leads the reader through a number of life-challenging scenarios. The characters are well developed, as is the plot for the most part. As the two main characters, Victoria and Adam, learn and struggle with their faith, their journey leads them through the mires of opposing forces of good and evil. A good read.
