I was so touched by this story and the message. It has a very heartfelt, real-life feel about it. If memory serves me right, this is the first Alexander book I ever read, and I was immediately addicted!
Book Rating: Best of the Best
Often times when I read these stories I think to myself, “That’s nice n’all, but that would never really happen.” This story dealt with some very real issues, (ie: the wayword brother) and I was so grateful to see that!
Many times in our lives God allows us to have very difficult challenges—so it is with the leading lady in this story, McKenna Ashford. McKenna is trying her best to care for and parent her younger brother Robert, who has been in a great deal of trouble in recent months. She goes to Colorado in search of a new life for them, and what she “inherits” is nothing like what she expected. She is overwheled with her responsilities, and isn’t sure if she can handle the weight of it all. Her faith and trust in the Almighty was wonderful! You will be so inspired, I know I was!
U.S. Marshall Wyatt Caradon is a leading man anyone can love! He is gentle and kind, yet tough when he needs to be. So dreamy!! Wyatt helps McKenna with her difficulties and finds he can leave behind years of hurt by allowing himself a new life with this lovely woman. The romance of the story was kinda slow in coming, but once it got going there was no stoppin' it! Mmmmm, yes I think I'm gonna have to pick this one up again this summer!!
The “inheritance” in this book wasn’t really what I thought it was going to be, and I was very moved. I would read this again and again. Can’t wait to hear what you think about it!
My testimony of God’s love and grace were strengthened through this book, and I’m sure yours will be too!
