KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great readJune 13, 2015KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the riveting tale of a woman torn between two worlds as she attempts to follow God's path for her life. Pleasing both sides is impossible but I so wanted it to work out. Why couldn't she have it all? How could she possibly choose? And live with the ramifications of whatever choice she finally makes?
Rob's return home to the community he grew up in is a surprise even to him. As is his attempts to connect with his estranged father. Add in a dysfunctional mother and brother and his home life makes his years in service seem easy. And in the midst of this chaotic homecoming he meets the perfect woman of his dreams...only she isn't. Talk about an angst-riddled romance!
Wonderful secondary characters and a surprising action-filled plot-twist bring an extra depth to an already compelling story.
