Christian Romance
60,000 words

In this Christian romance, Megan McGinnis was pressured to give up her baby and has regretted doing so ever since. Now she’s met Scott Landis and his son, Randy. His adopted son.

About the time she falls in love with Scott, circumstances convince her Randy is the baby she gave away nine years ago. But what can she do?

If she confronts Scott, she'll lose his love, and he'll keep Randy from her. If she marries Scott without telling who she is, she'll have Randy and Scott, but be living a lie. Is there a happy ending to her life?

Many times we can't see our own faults and problems as easily as we see others. In this contemporary romance, Megan's inner feelings and the past she can't seem to let go of keep her from realizing God's gift of a wonderful future. If only she can look forward she will win.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Read September 26, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Love Returned was an enjoyable story about relationships. It's more than a story about a man and woman. Past secrets are revealed as well as current secrets. Megan's relationship with her mother has been a strain since she gave birth to a child years earlier. The story deals with that as well as a man and woman falling in love. A surprise twist occurs near the end, and I think you'll enjoy reading this story.

5.0 out of 5 stars sweet romance September 6, 2012

Beautiful romance, well written. I enjoyed the build to the love romance. It was sweet, clean, and a good example of romance without the over play of sex used in most of todays romance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sweet But Too Involved January 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a sweet story and the writing was capable. However, it could have been told in a lot fewer pages. The constant tormented thoughts of the title character, Megan, weighed this book down unnecessarily.
I thought that her angst ridden belief that she somehow didn't deserve a happy, fulfilling family life simply because she had gotten pregnant in college and given the baby up for adoption was way overdone. Was it a difficult, heartbreaking situation? Definitely, but hanging on to such negativity for close to ten years is unhealthy in the extreme.
I also found Megan's 'Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the beam that is in your own eye?' situation regarding judging Scott's not attending church when she harbors such ill will toward her mother and the lawyer who facilited her child's adoption to be very off-putting.

I did appreciate a romantic story that was gentle and respectful rather than full of smarmy thoughts and dialogue.

This book had a lot of promise, but fell short in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review for Love Returned January 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mildred Colvin delivers another wholesome, yet captivating romance so typical of her style. I got lost in the story of Love Returned and thought I had the story all figured out, but at the end I was surprised. The satisfying ending was not at all what I'd expected. I would recommend this book for any reader who loves inspirational romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love Returned in abundance. October 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Love Returned is a book about regrets, new visions and love restored. It deals with problems that develop when people stray from what they know to be right in God's eyes. It shows how there is acceptance for those who are dealing with regrets of having given up a baby. It also shows how our heavenly father restores lives to an abundance of love and forgiveness and leads to true happiness. I would recommend this book especially to women who have had to give up their babies to adoption.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love Returned September 21, 2012
By Ann
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you enjoy a good love story with a strong Christian foundation than you will enjoy any of Mildred Colvin's books. The characters are strong and deal with more than a few troubles of life but always seem to come out on top and the better for the experience. I find it refreshing to read a light "feel good" story at times.
