First, here is the fabulous Author:
Mary DeWeber has always been a voracious reader. She often found unusual places to curl up with book including the branches of a sycamore tree! She spent hours entertaining her five children with stories that she would invent on the spur of the moment. Not afraid of tough subjects, her deep faith shines through her. Mary now resides in Arkansas in a hundred-year-old farmhouse with her husband Jeff and their dog Gretchen.
Now for the book!!
Emma had spent the last five years learning to cope with tragedy. She should have known that Doc had something up his sleeve when he'd talked her into taking a cooking job at a Colorado cattle ranch. Cooking was the easy part. Working with disabled children was something she was decidedly not prepared for. Throw in a tall dark mountain of a man with a voice like warm velvet and she was completely over her head! It would take God to straighten out the tangled mess she had made of her life.
I thought this was a very sweet love story. But it went beyond romance and touched on the pain of loss, the agony of forgiveness, the strength of moving forward, and the courage to endure. It showed how a life could be changed for good or for bad, and how through choosing how to react to circumstances sometimes outside their control. It spoke of relying on God to overcome things and to allow his love to touch a heart that might have turned hard and cold. Overall it was a good read. I felt that it jumped in places and I would have liked a few more details of the time gaps that occurred. Plus it lived up fully to the genre of Christian romance in reference, mannerisms, speach, and prayer included in the book, but the overall message of the book so even if Christian Romance isn't your style, it might be worth a look as it was a great reminder of faith while letting us enjoy a sweet romance!!
Thanks Mary DeWeber for sharing it with us and allowing me to read and review it!
