I loved this book right from the first chapter! I got so caught up in Nate's struggle with PTSD to the point of crying right along with him! The romance between him and Jenna, I felt, was really secondary to the main story but excellent as well. Loved it! This was a new author for me... I look forward to reading the rest of her books.
Jenna is a divorced mother of a beautiful little boy whose confidence had been destroyed by a bad marriage and divorce. Nate is a vet with PTSD who has been in love with her since their early teens. This is a sweet story of the healing power of prayer, love, and support of family and community, made even sweeter because of the Texas dialogue. Made me terribly homesick, ya'll.
I'm not much of a mushy love story kind of reader, but this book went beyond the love story and dealt with a very real issue that is effecting many of our veterans who have been overseas and are now home. Although this book was fiction, it helped to let others know that these veterans can get help and it can work - especially when Jesus and prayer are involved.
One thing that really caught my attention and that I really liked was the fact that the author was not afraid for her characters to say Jesus' name. In this day and age, that name is not spoken aloud very often - but should be.
I enjoyed the book with it's not too mushy romance and would recommend it to others.
