Brooke Holloway lives in the town where she grew up and married her childhood sweetheart. Everything was going so well for her, they had two kids and each had their own business until her husband was killed. Owen was betrayed by his wife with his business partner. After the divorce, he decided to start over kind of .. with building a life in a town his ex-wife always wanted to live in and in the house she always wanted. Both Owen and Brooke swore off any romances but built a friendship through mutual loneliness and the need for Owen to remodel his home while Brooke owned the hardware store he needed.
This book is a quick and enjoyable read. The characters are believable and the author shows how their struggles keep their hearts at bay. The story is about true forgiveness and the understanding that family can come from common needs and love not just because of blood. Brooke is a strong character with a firm faith in God while Owen’s faith had been shaken by the betrayal of his wife. Through the interaction with each other and the other characters in the story,Owen finds his way back to God. I would recommend this to any person who likes characters who struggle with life while finding God.
