DW Plato brings us a sweet tale of love in a traditional opposites attract fashion. Her characters are well developed and the touches of religion that are spinkled in the book, both Mormon and Pagan, are done with respect and intelligence so as not to make the reader feel uncomfortable in examining each point of view. It’s a fun story of love overcoming odds and finding solid ground in a relationship. Very enjoyable read!

The Sinners’ Club touched my heart. The title scared me a little bit because my imagination is capable of going lots of places with a title like that, but the book was clean, and fantastically well written. The characters are so well developed that it feels like you actually know them as people.
It’s possible that some people could get upset with this book because dogma is constantly being challenged. Being a Christian who constantly challenges dogma, I loved it. While Gaius sees inconsistencies between science, history, and the Bible, therefore proving it is wrong, I don’t see inconsistencies, I see proof. There is overwhelming historical proof that what happened in the Bible did actually happen, and since God created the world in an orderly fashion, science is actually possible. Therefore, everything in science confirms that God created the world.
The thing about dogma is that people create the dogma. People are imperfect. By refusing to fall for the dogma, Gaius lives a better Christian life than those who claim to be Christian. I have often found this to be the case within organized religions.
I loved the story and I will probably read it over and over. Thanks, D.W., I really enjoyed it!

This was the first book in quite some time that I simply couldn’t put down. I read it straight through. Admittedly, it started out a bit slow for me and I wasn’t sure at first that I wanted to finish. But I found some things that were familiar to me and kept my interest (I grew up in a conservative, strictly religious family. Not Mormon, but similar). Eventually, I found myself pulled in to the story. It was very emotional and dealt with controversial issues familiar with many religious communities. I think anyone, conservative or not, can relate to the issues and people in this story.

D.W is seriously becoming my favorite author! She writes so beautifully and all her characters are so well developed that you feel like you are part of the story. This book is like a modern day Romeo and Juliet but with religion. I love that the author tackles heavy controversial subject and is not afraid to do so it makes her writing so much more special! Like her second book I could not put this book down is was a long book and im so happy that it was I couldn’t get enough. I cant wait for another book from this author.

Loved the characters and storyline.Knowing that all people have their beliefs and seeing how a different perspective can make you see things in a different light makes this a special story. I received this book free as part of goodreads giveaways.
