This enjoyable melodrama is part of a large miniseries, The McKaslin Clan, that is part of the Steeple Hill Love Inspired series and written by Jillian Hart.
Wives of first responders (police, fire, etc) have a nightmare: one day their husbands won't come home from work. This book explores what happens when Jonas Lowell is shot in the line of duty and lives, but with a severe brain injury that has robbed him of all his memories. His loving wife, Danielle, aided by her large extended family, help Jonas recover his life.
The book can be overly melodramatic in places, but the love between Jonas and Danielle is almost palpable in some scenes. The reader finds him (or her) self rooting for them to recover the love that's buried under shrapnel and stitches. The miniseries on the McKaslins doesn't appear to be in any particular order, and each book can be read as a standalone. I'd recommend any of them.
I Loved this book! Terrific "falling in love with your spouse all over again" romance.
A nice inspirational book. Plot slow at times. Would be good as a book club discussion.
Fall in love with the McKaslin Clan, must read all books.
The book begins with Jonas's return home after a lengthy hospital stay, and many months in rehab. Jillian Hart takes the reader through the emotional turmoil his wife, Danielle, experiences as she waits for her husband to remember their life together. As Jonas struggles to remember, he works hard to become the man he thinks Danielle wants him to be -- the man she married. The book centers around Danielle, and the emotion she experiences during their struggle. Typically, Ms. Hart takes the reader through the emotional struggles of the characters, which I honestly find tiresome. However, I found this book to be one of her better ones and difficult to put down; thus, my rating of 4 stars.
