Chip is a man with a plan. A strict plan of what and when things are going to happen in his life. He is a talented builder, carpenter and wood carver with a really good heart.
Callie has such a loving and giving heart, she feels she can't give a man what he wants because she cannot have children She's going to work in an orphanage where she can be around lots of children to love.
Chip and Callie are friends, Chip finds her to be very attractive and very easy to talk to. But it is not the time for a woman in his life, according to his plan. Oh, how I wanted to hit him over the head with that plan!
As the two work together at the orphanage to care for and protect the children they found on the road, they begin to see what a life together could be if Chip could change his plan.
Mama Tess, Papa Spencer, & the staff at the Double T have created such a warm welcoming place for orphans. I loved their characters.
I was very satisfied with the ending of this book.
*I received this book as a gift and chose to review it. The opinion expressed is entirely my own.
Chip knew the robbers and murderer of their father was sure to be hunting for them after learning from Jasper that their father was going to open up a jewelry store in Placerville. Mama Tess and Papa Spencer, who had the Double T Orphanage, welcomed the children as Chip and Callie arrived for Chip to continue building furniture for the orphanage. Miss Callie was hired to be an assistant to Chip with her history of working in the lumber company. Callie and Chip had their own baggage to content with but they saw the qualities of each other as they cared for Jasper and Ruby. However, Mr. Chip had A Plan and marriage was not for him until three years later. Miss Callie desire was to have a child, but knew what had happened during a childhood injury. After visiting Becky and James O’Brien from her book, A Home of Her Own, Callie made an appointment with Dr. Wright who only confirmed her worse fear. How would Chip ever be able to accept Callie as an his wife when she could not bear him his own children?
Gwyn’s characters were realistic and well defined with struggles that one would have expected back in 1875. This story is action packed and filled with characters that cared for orphans with their dedication, hard work to make a lovely place for them to stay while instilling God’s Word and life skills into their young lives. Unexpected twists and turns with suspense kept me reading until I finished the book in one sitting. Will lives be spared when the robbers are so close by? Who finally discovers the jewels Jasper and Ruby’s father had purchased?
I have fallen in love with Keli Gwyn’s Love Inspired Historical books. It was nice to catch up with the characters from Gwyn’s other LIH books in this astonishing book. I look forward to reading more great stories by Gwyn filled with realistic characters, God’s love and mercy, and plots that are page turners. I won a copy of Her Motherhood Wish from the author’s giveaway on her blog post. I was not required to write a review, but have shared my honest opinion.
As Callie and Chip grow to care for Ruby and Jasper they also grow to care for each other. Unfortunately Callie doesn't fit into The Plan that Chip has mapped out for his life. In The Plan Chip doesn't plan to court for another 3 years. So he and Callie can only remain friends. But in Chips dreams Callie fits the perfect wife for him, if only they hadn't met before he was ready. Callie is quickly learning to see that Chip is a wonderful man and would make a wonderful husband and father. Callie realizes though that Chip is very set on The Plan and that his plan leaves no room for Callie or the children that Callie has quickly fallen in love with.
I really enjoyed Her Motherhood Wish. I loved that there was some suspense added to the story! I've seen several other people comment that they would like to have smacked Chip upside the head, add me to the group! Oh my goodness was he thick-headed! Such a good man and so thoughtful and caring towards others, very protective even, but that blasted plan of his was going to be the end of me! I loved catching up with Tess and Spencer from Family Of Her Dreams and I definitely loved Chip and Callie. If you haven't ever read a Love Inspired Historical before I highly recommend them.
