I have read many books by this author, and this one does not disappoint.
The title resonates in so many ways, and was quickly pulled into this
page turning read.
A man who had it all, a brilliant military career,
an estate/farm to come home to and a beautiful young woman to marry
waiting for him, but alas life is not how it appears. Adam has sustained
sever injuries, and his recovery is in jeopardy.
At nine and twenty
Mary Bloomfield has resigned herself to being a spinster, and she loves
working with her doctor father. She has a love of the Lord and a very
kind heart, and some of the happenings she deals with so
compassionately, will break your heart.
She does become a catalyst towards Adams healing, and you will love the banter between them.
I loved that the author brought us answers to many questions, and I had guessed wrong.
You don't want to miss this inspiring read, it will linger with you long after the cover is closed.
I received this book through Read With Audra and the Publisher Kregel, and was not required to give a positive review.
So glad you enjoyed this- thanks for sharing your lovely review xxReplyDelete
