They develop a friendship and it helps to get him back into the world. He is slowly getting back on his feet. He is a very innocent young man. Had sex with only one female in his late 20's or early 30's. He is a Catholic and very earnest in his beliefs. he strayed only when the ex was in his life and leading him down the path of sin. He is back on track and takes his Grandma, the woman that raised him, to Mass every Sunday. He still feels he failed himself, God, and the world at large. So when he meets the heroine he doesn't feel worthy.
Their romance is an off again on again thing. She is very interested, she is also Catholic, but he seems to just want to be friends. The ex shows up just as they are starting to get to know one another and threatens him with a child he didn't know about. he does outsmart her on this one. But he doesn't share that with the heroine. This guy thinks a lot, lots of good thoughts go on in his head but he doesn't act on any of them.
The bad seed, the ex. shows up again in the form of a bank loan that she defaults on and now he is responsible because he co-signed for her. I have to say I got a little tired of all this drama. Good grief, they couldn't have a happy moment, just one thing after another. I had a hard time relating to these two. It maybe because my religion is different and their "innocence" was just a bit much for me. I certainly don't want to discourage anyone from reading the story. I think Christian readers would love the story. - If they are able to overlook his fall from grade for having sex before marriage. There was no explicit sex scenes, he just confessed to the deed. But I believe it is a good Christian story.
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is just my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.
After being badly burned by a woman, Dan Malone is in no rush to get into a relationship with another one, but he can't seem to get his mind off of Emily, the younger sister of a new friend. He has a great deal of baggage to contend with and the two share an on-again, off-again up-and-down relationship, trying to work through all the assorted junk that life seems to throw at them.
Ultimately, this is a story of redemption and forgiveness and the fact that none of us are beyond God's mercy, no matter what may have happened in the past.
