Max knows that he is adopted, but his parents keep the truth about his history from him. He has always felt that he was an obligation to his parents, and not loved like they love his sisters. When he meets Lynn and learns that she works with the states documents, they strike up a friendship and he asks her to look into his family.
Their friendship grows, and as it begins to blossom into more, Lynn finds herself on a quest to find the truth behind all the secrets. The more she spends time with Max and goes to church with him, she realizes all the empty places in her heart.
Foster creates a heartwarming story with a slow-building romance, a deep sense of faith, and an emphasis on the love of family. A fun summer read!
Max Tate had been adopted into a wealthy, prominent family in the town of Ft. Freedom. But he had always felt disconnected; like he didn't really belong. Memories of a Hispanic woman plague him, and he wants to track down his birth mother. Max's parents deny him any information about the woman. As a result, he becomes depressed.
Lynn Marshall had issues with her older sister, Kara, feeling used whenever Kara needed her to babysit. She felt her sister expected her to be available on demand.
When Lynn and Max meet at a town July 4th celebration, the circumstances aren't desirable. Lynn's niece, Jada drops ice cream onto Max's head from her perch in a high tree. But soon, Lynn and Max become friends, then move on to dating. At first, Max has an ulterior motive for seeing Lynn. Though he is genuinely attracted to her, he realizes her employment as a research analyst at the Office of Program Research in Olympia could help him find his birth mother. As they spend time together, though, Max helps Lynn find the Lord, and they come to care for one another. As Lynn helps Max dig up information, secrets are revealed that could crush their developing relationship. Will love conquer all in this situation?
Overall, A Hometown Fourth of July was a pleasant read. I liked how the author wove situations into the story that are supported by Scripture, like forgiveness, loneliness, self-worth, and feeling loved. The romantic elements proved satisfying, too.
If you like sweet romances based on Biblical principles, and books inspired by true events, this book is for you.
The Wordsmith Journal strives to guide readers to books of personal interest, with the understanding and respect that what appeals to some may not appeal to others. Therefore we attempt to keep our reviews focused on content, genre and style. The rating is necessary to make use of Goodreads and Amazon. It reflects the reviewer's own level of enjoyment, but the review is intended to be informative for the benefit of all readers.
