DESTINY by Karen Wiesner is a very good book. As a Christian and a young adult, I could relate to this book on many levels. As humans, when we are on a spiritual level sometimes we find it hard to forgive ourselves when we feel that we have done wrong. I have struggled with that myself. I think Karen Wiesner did a great job of displaying the struggle of a spiritual journey. Karen Wiesner also did a great job showing how sometimes our relationships with others can consume us and how we in return, lose ourselves in wanting to be loved.

The four main characters, Chris, Elizabeth, Oscar, and Yolie, who are all friends, all have unique stories but their stories blend with each other. Chris is struggling to find his own identity but is doing so in a way in which he is turning away from God. Elizabeth does not really know who she is but is not really trying to find herself because she is so much in love. Oscar is Elizabeth's best friend and to me is the most sane of the group, and Yolie is someone who just has a really caring heart but that is also what has led to most of her struggles.

All in all, DESTINY is a great story. I would recommend it strongly and encourage all to read this as it can actually help a lot. Karen definitely did a good job of putting a lot of twists and turns in the book, which I loved. The book definitely kept my attention all the way through. If you enjoy real romance novels that not only focus on the good but also show the struggles of relationships and how couples do overcome them, then this is the book for you.

A wonderful inspirational second chance. The latest inspirational visit to Peaceful, Wisconsin (see Family Heirlooms and the Friendship Heirlooms Series) is a wonderful romance starring a lost soul and the love of a woman destined to return him to the flock.

The lead couple and Oscar make for a strong tale as love is blind but in this case not in the traditional meaning. Fans will enjoy playing Destiny Poker as Karen Wiesner provides a tender second chance at family, love between soul mates and with the Lord drama."

DESTINY was a very nice story. And if you like, Christian romances, you'll like this one. You rooted for the characters to find the peace and love; they needed in order to feel whole. Chris has his issues with his family, in the form of an uncle who had just gotten out of prison and a former friend. Elizabeth (also a childhood friend) is in love with Chris. Oscar, who used to be Chris's childhood friend, is in love with Elizabeth and can't understand why she's crazy about Chris.

Oscar may have been in love with Elizabeth, but there was another childhood friend who was in love with him and he didn't even know it. There is friction every time Oscar and Chris get together, so they generally try to stay away from one another. There were some serious issues and Chris faces them head-on. You sympathized with the characters and hoped they finally got what they wished for and they'd be happy once they received it. Definitely worth reading.

4 ½ Stars! “This story shows that, quite often, what you are desperately searching for in your life has always been there, unseen due to its familiarity. And as with Elizabeth, it also shows that love is often blind. Too blind. The lucky ones realize it before it is too late. Once again the author, Karen Wiesner, has written an inspirational romance that kept me reading far longer than I should have. (I rescheduled a dentist appointment just so I could finish it.) I would also like to mention that a card game (called Destiny Poker) is played in this story. A small section, in the back of this book, tells how the author came up with the game. Since the idea first came to mind, Destiny Poker has been tweaked and refined and is now available to the public. You can find details on how to play Destiny Poker in the book. The author has even made a special card deck, which you may choose to order. (I have a deck. The back of each card has a picture of the book’s cover. I have to admit that the cards are gorgeous.) This is a stand-alone story. No other book needs to be read to fully enjoy it. The characters have well-developed backgrounds and are so believable that, were they real people, I could have called them my friends. A wonderful story to curl up with on a cold night or take with you on a plane or vacation. Very heartwarming.” ~Huntress Review
