World of the Innocent ... by Nadine C. Keels

Jhoi: she’s poetic. She’s guarded. And she couldn’t imagine having much to do with a guy like Marcas. Sure, Marcas is a brilliant fellow artist, admired by plenty of fans. But he’s so remarkably...strange.

Still, Marcas touches Jhoi’s soul. And through the counsel of a shrewd old neighbor, Jhoi will discover a link between intimate friendship and becoming a steward of an era.

A tale of love, enduring belief, and the meaning of innocence—based on a true story.


World of the Innocent by Nadine C. Keels impacts us with the honest emotions of a young woman transitioning from young girl to womanhood. Jhoi (pronounced Joy) is asking us to sit and listen to her story of how she is learning to manage her newly developed femininity.

Keels has written a lovely, blossoming romantic story between Jhoi and Marcas in a style that I found very comfortable, as if she personally was sitting next to me and sharing a part of her life. Keels gave just enough detail for me to picture what these characters looked like and how they were feeling inside along with their trust in God.

Flirting, discovering awaking feelings with the trending dialogue of young adults unsure of themselves but discovering their way was spot on. Packed with emotions, this was a heartfelt read.
