A book that seemed so real, a man that felt he is owed everything because he is a good football player, using his power to attempt to ruin others’ lives, and then throw them away.
While the story does revolve around the ego of this person it is not what the real book is about. Feeling ruined a young engaged college student feels her life is over and gives up her true love. Flash forward nine years and she is still in her rut, until, well I’m not giving the story away, but she does finally go home.
Circumstances have change for the former fiancé and he is now the pastor of his recently deceased father’s church.
I love how this church community and restaurants and homes are all near one another, and what Sadie has denied herself, all because!
I found myself page turning so that I could have answers, but in the end, I wanted to stay and be around these dear people!
I received this book through Celebrate Lit, and was not required to give a positive review.
