Faith 'n Fiction Saturday - Character

Amy at My Friend Amy has a meme going for those who enjoy Saturday Christian Fiction. Today's question is:

There are many outstanding characters in the books we read but often there's that one special character we remember for a long time. Sometimes it's because we relate to them, or maybe we were going through something similar to what they experienced. Or maybe they are just the sort of person we wish we were.
Who is the most memorable character in Christian fiction for you and why?


My Answer:
I don't seem to be able to remember a certain name of a character, but the personality I relate best with would be similar to the characters I often find in Angela Hunt's books. They are strong-minded, able bodied, Christian women. As I read, I like to think that God can use this material to change me for the better.

Good answer, Sally.

but come on, get your nerve up and read Isolation. (smile) It DOES have a salvation and God-intervention ending.

Too wimpy - lol. You're something else.

Nice blog! I'll be back.

Angela Hunt is on my list. Do you recommend any specific titles from her? As in...where should I start?!

I like a few of Angela's books - her books about the mortuary are really good.

I forgot to put Francine Rivers books on my list too - she creates wonderful characters.

I haven't read anything from Angela Hunt yet. I find that I'm a different person when I read Christian Fiction - I'm more calm and reflective, and less likely to take things too personally! :)

So far, I have not read a book by Angela Hunt that I have not liked. I just brought home The Truth Teller.

Love your site Sal! I'm not familiar with Angela Hunt, or at least her name doesn't ring a bell.
