This was a good book, a little slow at some points. A wonderful tale of healing hearts and relationships with the Lord.

This was a great story. The only complaint I had was Henderson used their names WAY too often. Nearly every time one of the characters spoke to another, they used that person name. It became rather annoying, especially when most of the time it was only two people involved in the scene. Names just weren't needed. BUT, it's still a great, quick read.

"I think you chose the wrong time to get to know me, Scott". He tensed. He suspected this was heading somewhere he did not like. "Because of the memories?" "Because I don't want to get involved," she replied. "Not now." He sighed. "Jennifer, you're going to go through this, no matter how long you wait...." "The memories are too raw, Scott. I can't handle half a dozen flashbacks every day to a time when life was perfect. I'll shatter." Scott winced at the image. "Was it perfect, Jen?" he asked carefully. "For a time, yes it was," she whispered. "Jen, I can't take away the pain you are going through. But I can give you all the time you need."

Scott is a successful businessman. But on his 38th birthday, he realizes that even though he's blessed with family and friends and a great career - something is missing. As he blows out the candles on his cake, he whispers a silent prayer to God for a wife. The very next day Scott meets enigmatic author Jennifer St. James while strolling on the beach. Jennifer holds a lot of pain behind her angelic eyes. Still mourning the loss of her husband and infant daughter, Jennifer's once-deep faith is now fragile. Certain that Jennifer is the answer to his prayer, can Scott convince her to give love a second chance?

This is my least favorite read of Dee's. It was way too sappy/romancey. I enjoy her writing because of the suspense and depth of characters. Too predictable.

Sweet romance story, but not as good as Dee Henderson's other books, such as The O'Malley series.
