Buried Treasures - eBook
A great read with lots of fun and faith
Another great read by Mary!
This is the story of two people, Caroline and Matt, both carrying their own secrets, one willing to reach out the other not so much. Throw in some lively and fun characters such as Paul, Sue, Andie and Callie. You will fall in love with the characters and their lives. You will find yourself cheering as well as shaking your head in disbelief at some things but this thing is for sure, you won't be able to put it down until you find out what happens in so many of the situations presented. It is a page turner of a different kind. Pick one up and see what you think.
I was given this book by Mary Manners with no strings attached, but to post a review, and this is my honest opinion of this story...one of many. Must go find some more!!

Can she allow the possibility of her love being destroyed if something happens to him too? We find her struggling with overcoming faith and trust and relying on God and others.
Matt feels he can never love again because of how he treated his late wife. He has to overcome blame and realize God can change a man. Can he just be a good handyman and not let his heart get involved with Caroline? Yet, when his nephew is in need of counseling and Caroline is just what he needs will the trials they face draw them closer or tear them apart?
