As a widow, a job comes up that takes Allison Drake Littenberg back to Chicago. She hopes she can mend fences with family members and friends, particularly Jack Callahan, the handsome cop she left back in 1969. Now, 30 years later, Jack is bitter from bad decisions and a nasty divorce. Even so, Allie prays God will use her own broken past to touch lives, as only He can.
All the main characters in the novel are wounded and carrying burdens and hurts. Yet, God weaves their lives in such a way they help each other, and healing takes place, even out of the bad.
There are several minor editing errors, something I've never seen in Andrea's works before. However, there's not so many, and they're minor enough that they shouldn't slow anyone too much. The biggest flaw is the book ends "too be continued." As far as I can see, there's not an e-version of the follow-up, PRECIOUS THINGS, only a print one. I hate when authors do this to try to ensure you'll buy the next one. However, with the way BROKEN THINGS ends and the prologue to PRECIOUS THINGS included, the reader still has closure. The book is so good I would still highly recommend it. This is contemporary Christian romance at its best.
There are so many passed hurts and the mending of hearts is woven throughout this story.
Allie and Jack have a lifetime of hurt and pain after Allie leaves because she is not ready to get married.
Jack marries Roxi, but still loves Allie, and Roxi never feels loved, so she leaves him with a baby, Logan.
Logan, because his mom leaves him, isn’t sure if Marilee will leave him, so he has to work through why his mom left him before he understands that Marilee won’t leave him.
Allie marries Erich, who turns out to be abusive and a drug dealing man who eventually is killed. Because of this tragedy, Allie turns her life over to God.
Allie becomes a consultant for a nursing home, back where all the hurt started, and befriends one of the patients.
Can she use her tragedy to mend a lifetime of hurts, bitterness, resentment, and anger?
The struggle is real for so many of us, but God can truly heal all wounds, if we just let him.
She and Jack had a special relationship back then but she chose her career over Jack, moved away and later wrote to Jack wanting to come back home but he never answered.
She still had hope they might rekindle the old flame after thirty years. Each had married and had a grown son. Allie lost her husband in a terrible accident and Jack lost his wife to alcohol and worldly living.
Evan Jacobs hired Allie to temporarily return to Lakeland and reorganize the medical facility of Lakeland Enterprises. She sensed God was in the arrangements, that He wanted her there.
Bowshaar weaves a story of Allie reuniting with old friends, and she deciding she would take this opportunity to repair relationships from years before when she was a frivolous and unwise young lady.
Allie seems ready for those from her past to recognize their weaknesses but it takes her awhile to recognize and repair some areas in herself.
As a seasoned Christian now, Allie asks God’s help to see areas of her personality and her life which need maturing so she can mend relationships with her half- sisters and former friends.
The book shows Allie how she needs refining. It isn’t the usual “fall in love” romance but written at a deeper level.
