This Saturday will be my first visit to the city of Danville, Virginia. I have several very devoted fans in that area and had never before been to the B. Daltons. So I am looking forward to my last signing for Book III!
A recent criticism of Book III from a reviewer stated that having James control the money in his family was so out of date and made him look like a caveman! This reviewer seemed offended that James would expect his wife to obey him in the area of finances.
This boggles my mind! Out of date? In our household, my husband handles the money, too. God placed a charge on the man to protect and provide for his family, and we believe that includes taking the stress of managing the finances off the wife as well. I know many people who run their households in this manner and do not see it as old-fashioned! I like not having the added burden of paying the bills and balancing the checkbook, thank you very much!
This will not deter my determination to stick to my values and principals and I make no apologies for my character's actions!
My husband had a theory that this reviewer was a recent & bitter divorcee! So sad for her.
Just wait until she reads Book IV, which heavily emphasizes Christian values and principals - it'll make her crazy!
