On 7/15 Karen Cross wrote: I was very excited about receiving my 1st book called Captivating by John & Stasi Eldredge. It is a New York Times Bestseller. The cover is beautiful, a white vellum with gold accents, and it's very appealing. What do they say about not judging a book by it's cover? The first few chapter's were indeed ... Beautiful on the outside, not so much on the inside.
