I have read other books by Kristen Heitzmann and really like her style of drawing out empathy from the reader. I enjoyed this book so much, I had a hard time putting it down. There was much deeper spiritual journey in this book, her characters really go through challenges. I love how this one was not an easy road but a real test of faith and trusting that God knows best. To my experiences and dealings with people this book was very real.
This book is filled with characters that you want to have a happy ending. Jill, haunted by past decisions, pours herself into her special kids at school and shuns intimate relationships because of the hurt from the past. Morgan, outwardly successful, pours himself into fixing everyone's problems, but drowns his own hurts in his business and alcohol. But all of that changes when they reconnect and face a struggle together. This is a book to return to again and again, to see the Lord working in two lives to bring them closer to Him, and to heal the hurt in their lives.
This is a great book and so hard to put down! I think if I had the time, I would consume it all in one day! I love the repackaging b/c the blue cover copy that I have ~ the description on the back did not do the story justice. I am so glad to see it repackaged with the new summary of their child!
One of my teenage daughters read this first and told me that I had to read it. This author is so good and getting into the character's minds and emotions. The storyline was believable and very touching. I highly recommend this book.
