My rating: 4 of 5 stars
After reading the first book BLOWING ON DANDELIONS I was looking forward to reading this one.
In the first book we learnt how Katherine Galloway struggled to carry on the running of a boarding house along with her young family after her husband had died . Then her Mother moves in who is so dominant and bossy it causes endless amount of problems in Katherine's life and her young children. Katherine has a young Teenage daughter so along with her mother to cope with, its beyond her. Micah Jacobs comes into her path along the way and her heart starts to beat again. This is something that Katherine thought would never happen again. Then things change.
Beth has scars, physical scars that impinge on her life badly. It interferes with a lot of her decisions in life.
Her aunt gave her some advice "But dear heart, your peace can't come solely from your drawings, nor can you find your entire worth there. That must come from God." and hopes that Beth will take this onboard for her future well being.
I was thinking when reading this:
Many of us carry scars, whether they are physical scars or emotional scars, all have scarred our hearts and minds. The author Miralee Ferrell has delved deep within to bring out a very poignant read.
The story portrayed a good sense of family values and morals throughout which makes a fantastic change in todays society to prove that a 'good book' doesn't have to have people taking their clothes off every five minutes!
Yes its a tender love story.
Beth learns that not everything can come through her paintings, satisfaction and life has to be lived.
I really loved this book 2 in the series. Brought home to me a lot of thoughts.
I have read a few Christian authors books Karen Kingsbury is one of my best and now that I have found this authors books I will be furthering my reading matter in this authors work.
I would like to thank David C Cook via Net galley for the change to read this book. I look forward to reading more of this authors work.
This is my honest review. My personal POV and receive no monetary gain by doing so.
Can Love Survive When Secrets Collide? She’d kept her secrets safely hidden—those from her past, and those in the present. Some things, Beth Roberts knows, a lady simply doesn’t share, even in the 1880’s West. The townspeople would never understand. No one ever has. Jeffery Tucker, a handsome young writer, has kept his own secrets. He doesn’t have a right to pry into Beth’s affairs but finds himself strangely drawn to her and intrigued by the whiff of mystery surrounding her. Beth knows that one day someone will unravel the threads of her past. And when two men from her past arrive, the truth might just hurt . . . Beth’s future and her heart. As shadowy memories surface, Beth sketches the scenes she sees and is shocked by what—and who—her illustrations reveal. Dare she risk her heart again?
