Today I am reviewing The Isaac Project by Sarah Monzon.
Here is a brief synopsis:
Becky Sawyer’s life unravels in a single day. Not only does she catch her boyfriend, the man she hoped to marry, lip-locked with another woman, she also receives the gut-wrenching news that her grandfather, the man who raised her, is dying.
His last wish?
To see her happily married.
Heartbroken, Becky seeks inspiration in the pages of the Holy Scriptures. And finds it in the story of Isaac and Rebekah.
If love couldn’t keep his parents together, Luke Masterson wonders what will make a marriage last.
He decides to steer clear of all women—especially crazy ones like Becky Sawyer, who employs a friend to find her a husband.
But when he feels the dogged promptings of the Holy Spirit to move across the country and marry a complete stranger, it seems love has little to do with it anyway.
With commitment their only foundation, and love constantly thwarted, can an arranged marriage find happiness in the twenty-first century?

An arranged marriage? In this century?
When Becky Sawyer decides to seek a husband through the inspiration of the story of Isaac and Rebecca, things get a little crazy. But no one could have predicted how quickly things would work out.
Will Becky and her chosen spouse marry? Will everything work out? Will they live happily ever after?
Read. The. Book.
Just do it. No, it doesn’t all work out the way I expected it to; nor was it easy. But I couldn’t stop reading until I reached the end. Read it. You’ll be glad you did.
Yes, there’s a bit of violence… but I didn’t stop reading — and I don’t think it will stop you, either. (I just wanted to warn you to expect it). It’s real life drama . . . in a wonderful story, full of ups and downs, promises and pitfalls, to the very end.
Sarah Monzon created a unique, fantastic story, from a biblical idea that most would consider too old-fashioned, or a bit crazy. And she added amazing characters you will never forget.
Now go out there and get the book — and read it.
