Twenty-three year old Indigo Burns is a recent college graduate with a well-planned game plan. She is planning on becoming a professional photographer and she has the drive and ambition to make it happen. She has landed an opportunity to intern at a well-known establishment, and graduate school is in her future.

Brian, Indigo’s college boyfriend, unexpectedly proposes, has the potential to change all Indigo’s plans. Suddenly all Indigo’s plans hang in the balance, with no idea whether she’ll even achieve her dreams or even continue with her education. Indigo is forced to make new decisions and find answers. Should she choose Brian and marriage, or should she put him off and concentrate on her career.

But even Brian is battling demons that have the potential to kill his relationship with Indigo. With their families loving advice, and their faith in God, the couple struggles to find answers. But what is there to do when either choice requires a huge price to pay?

I loved the heroine’s name, Indigo, in this story, it was very intriguing, and seemed to fit her personality well. I also thought that the wisdom in WORTH A THOUSAND YEARS was very true and realistic as well. One can make all the plans they want, but that doesn’t mean that they will work out according to plan. And sometimes, one has to let go of all that is familiar and true and set out in the unknown, trusting that it is the way God has for them to go.

WORTH A THOUSAND YEARS is a top-notch romance with enough twists and turns to keep the reader interested in the story. The characters are well-developed, and realistic, and the writing is stellar. This is a book to be considered for your library. $12.99. 268 pages.
