Boy Meets Girl Joshua Harris
But if you're looking for an intentional, God-pleasing game plan for finding a future spouse, Joshua Harris delivers an appealing one. A compelling new foreword, an all-new "8 Great Courtship Conversations" section, and updated material throughout makes this five-year revision of the original Boy Meets Girl a must-have!
Harris illustrates how biblical courtship-a healthy, joyous alternative to recreational dating-worked for him and his wife. Boy Meets Girl presents an inspiring, practical example for readers wanting to pursue the possibility of marriage with someone they may be serious about.
Are you ready for "romance with purpose"? If you're fed up with self-centered relationships that end in disillusionment, it's time to rethink romance.
Girl Meets Boy by Ali Smith
Finding the loving, committed relationship you want shouldn't mean throwing away your hopes, your integrity, or your heart. As old-fashioned as it might sound, courtship is what modern day relationships desperately need.
Think of it as romance chaperoned by wisdom, cared for by community, and directed by God's Word. Filled with inspiring stories from men and women who have rediscovered courtship, Boy Meets Girl is honest, romantic, and refreshingly biblical. Keep God at the center of your relationship as you discover how to: I swear it did.

What Smith does, however, is to tell the story, or rather a story playing with similar ideas, in the context of two sisters, Anthea and Imogen "Midge"based in one of my favourite places - Inverness.
Anthea is a free-spirited idealist who dislikes her job in the local PR firm her sister got her.

Imogen is a straight-laced pragmatist who is pursuing her ambitions in the same firm, which currently tries to market over-priced bottled water. The story really kicks off when a protester by the artistic alias of Iphis07 vandalises the PR firm's property: The boy up the ladder at the gate was in a kilt and sporran.
The kilt was a bright red tartan; the boy was black-waistcoated and had frilly cuffs, I could see the frills at his wrists as I came closer. I could see the glint of the knife in his sock. I could see the glint of the little diamond spangles on the waistcoat and the glint that came off the chain that held the sporran on.
He had long dark hair winged with ringlets, like Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean, but cleaner.
