Powerline by Deborah Kinnard reviewed by Marian Baay





Reviewed by Marian Baay



4 stars ****

Emotional and sweet romance

Cassie is an ER nurse, a true believer and a volunteer at Powerline. One night a man calls to talk about his problems. His wife died 6 months ago and he doesn't want to live anymore. Cassie reminds him that God is in control of life and dead. The man promised not to hurt himself that night. Cassie is pretty shaken up after the phone call.

A little time later she's working in the ER when an older lady with a stroke comes in. Her neighbour has come with her and Cassie recognizes the man's voice from the phone call. He's the man who called himself Jeff. She panics, because she's not supposed to have contact with anyone who called Powerline for help. When the man finally recognizes her voice too, she doesn't know what to do. She tries to remain distant, but the man wants to thank her and persists to buy her an icecream.

It's clear there's attraction between Cassie and Jeff. Cassie is afraid to love, but Jeff is convinced his love for Cassie comes from the Lord. Cassie reminds him he just lost his wife and can't be thinking about something serious right now. Against all odds they befriend each other and soon find themselves very much in love. But when a train accident happens things suddenly change for Cassie. She's confused and needs to search herself for answers, she needs to learn to trust again.

This story contained the most romance I have seen in a book in a long time. The love between Jeff and Cassie is sweet—it seems rushed, but when the Lord is at work anything can happen. The story also deals with overcoming loss and grief and to learn to trust God completely.


This book was Deb Kinnard's debut novel and I think it was nicely done!

  1. What a great review, MARIAN! This book is completely different than Deb's time travel book. I so envy these authors their ability to imagine so many different scenarios and plots, and write books about them! My imagination just doesn't seem to stretch that far! :(

  2. Thank you DIANA! Yes, the book was different than Seasons in the Mist. Sometimes I'm thinking about writing a book, but I just don't have enough imagination. So I stick to writing reviews. LOL
