Old Fashioned Book And Devotional Review and Giveaway 7/7/2015

Old Fashioned is a retro-modern love story of chivalry making a comeback.  Christian dating is a hot topic right now and I would love to get your perspective on it, especially from the viewpoint of the novelization and devotional.  What do you think chivalry looks like today?  "Living the old fashioned way means being intentional in our relationships.  It thinks in terms of I and Thou (such a great and little used word nowadays!), always considering others above ourselves.  The focus is on the other person - which is the essence of the Golden Rule ("Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you" - Matthew 7:12)" - quote from Ginger Kolbaba, author of The Old Fashioned Way: Reclaiming the Lost Art of Romance.  

A romantic-drama, OLD FASHIONED centers on Clay Walsh, a former frat boy who gives up his reckless carousing and now runs an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town. There, he has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance as well as for his devout belief in God. When Amber Hewson, a free-spirited young woman with a restless soul, drifts into the area and rents the apartment above his shop, she finds herself surprisingly drawn to his strong faith and noble ideas, which are new and intriguing to her. And Clay, though he tries to fight and deny it, simply cannot resist being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life. Ultimately, Clay must step out from behind his relational theories and Amber must overcome her own fears and deep wounds as the two of them, together, attempt the impossible: an "old-fashioned" and God-honoring courtship in contemporary America. #FLYBY 

Turning his back on his reckless lifestyle, former frat boy Clay Walsh has settled down to turn an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town....and to purse lofty and outdated theories on love and romance.  But when Amber Hewson, a free-spirited woman with a gypsy soul, rents the apartment above his shop, Clay can't help being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life.  Amber also finds herself surprisingly drawn to Clay, but his ideas about relationships are unusual to say the least, and they bring to light her own deep wounds and fears about love.  They say opposites attract, but can Clay and Amber move beyond their differences and their pasts to attempt an "old fashioned" courtship?

I'm not a love story fan. I thought all the books and movies were all the same. Man meets woman and everything is always surrounded by sex. The old Fashioned part of this  book caught my attention. You have Clay (who was a player), but changed his life. You also have Amber who always picks the wrong man and suffers for it. The book brings you to a different kind of love story. About a man who is old fashioned and wants something different. He finds it in Amber which makes this a book somebody like me would be willing to pick up and read. And yes, if you love love stories, you will still love this book.
