I have read several of the authors' books, but this one is the most beautiful story of faith, forgiveness and love I have ever read. The characters are written with flaws that the author uses to bring them closer to God and to show their vulnerability . We all want to be accepted and loved, but what if we had things from the past that keep us guarded around others? Can Heather find a way to forgive her father and finally break the chains that have held her captive in bitterness and mistrust? Will Chase be able to reach the kids that are walking through a troubled time and steer them to the One who saves?
I loved how the author wrote about the attraction between Heather and Chase without rushing it. The story was so well written I couldn't put it down. It draws on your emotions and guides you with scriptures toward a story that will stay with you forever. This is a love story not just between two people, but also with God as the author's words delicately dance across the pages. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a clean faith filled romance that shares about forgiveness and accepting others.
