Bianca is another older strong character, with struggles. I believe every reader will find at least one character with whom to connect/relate. Or maybe 2, like me.
THIS STORY IS CONVINCINGLY REALISTIC.
A multi-plot warm-fuzzy perfect for anytime reading as a beach read to blizzard day in front of a fireplace and wrapped in an afghan. A perfect story to share with a significant other as a read-aloud, alternating who reads each chapter. Hint: again alternating, the listener rubs the reader’s feet during each chapter. Yes, I am blessed to be married to another bookworm, and we’ve ‘been there-done that.’
This book possesses good characters with a touching story that tackles multiple social issues.
I suggest another by Jennifer Slattery, if you like down-to-earth authentic Christian fiction:
Intertwined: A Contemporary Romance Novel
Many of the characters in this book were first introduced in the author’s early book, “Beyond I Do”, but this book completely stands alone.
One aspect of the book that I really enjoyed was that the romance is between an older couple – they talked about grown kids and grandbabies – quite different from the usual romance. Mitch and Angela have different baggage that comes from living many decades and not just a couple. They face real life issues as words hurt, people lash out, life is hard, yet God restores. I really enjoyed reading “Restoring Love” and highly recommend it. I received this book from the author in return for my honest opinion.
I almost tossed the book aside because the opening chapter upset me, which shows just how much Satan didn’t want me to read and rave about “Restoring Love a Contemporary Novel” by Jennifer Slattery! I say this because, I found the first chapter hard to read, sought God, remembered my mother telling me not to read the first section of James Michener’s Hawaii, tore out the first few pages, and began to read the book as if it were new to me. What unfolded before me was a heart touching and at times gut wrenching story that I believe was gifted to this woman who must walk very close to God, I say that because I sensed our Lords presence in each difficult situation, and am sure, He – like I – celebrated each victory!
Whether you’re searching for answers, in need of comfort or looking for a read that will uplift your spirit so that you can experience the joy you first had when you gave your life to Christ, or are searching for a primer on how to discover if the budding love you feel is of the Lord, this is the book for you! If you think your mistakes make you less than, this is the book for you. And if you’ve lost hope, this is the book for you. In fact, I can honestly say that no matter what’s going on in your life – this book about restoration will speak to your heart and you will be as grateful to the author who wrote it as I am!
I would have bought this book once I discovered how great it was. However, I was given this book for my honest review, and highly recommend you read and gift it also.
Paula Rose Michelson writes Christian Inspirational Fiction with a Messianic twist and a hint of history, Thrillers, Nonfiction, Self-help, and works to encourage. Her Kindle eBooks & Paperbacks are available on Amazon.
Through the characters, both good ones and bad, I fell in love with this book. Their stories showed me that if I believe, if I have faith, my heart will be restored. Leaning on God and understanding that it's all in His time, His will, love can be restored no matter what. Letting go, forgiveness, and acceptance make up wonderful pages of this book. The characters blended perfectly with the plot line and captivated me, heart and soul.
Ms. Slatterly's book is deserving of no less than 5 stars. If I could give it 5,000 stars I would. I highly recommend that you grab this book, devour it and feel the feels that I felt in this book. You won't be sorry when you do. I can't wait to read another amazing book by her talented hands.
