I loved the characters. Livy and Jack both have such depth to them. It was great to see them grow and develop throughout the book. And I also loved the small glimpses into their childhood too. I find there are too many novels out there where the characters fall in love for the first time or have never had a truly serious relationship before. And while those stories are good.... This book offers a view of a relationship where the previous relationships have to be overcome in order for the new one to take hold. It was a nice change of pace. I love how the characters grew and how they overcame their pasts.
I'm not going to lie. I loved the romance too. I love Christian Fiction that is clean but still shows what a dating relationship is really like. That things get heated up and passionate. That it shows on the pages of a book that two people can be in love, hot for each other and still make good decisions. I think it is important for young people to read Christian fiction that doesn't end with a peck and a friendly hug.
Another aspect of this book that was so very well done was Livy's past relationship. Too often we gloss over the bad things that happen in relationships and we don't talk about the hard things. I appreciate Tysinger tackling the hard conversation of verbally abusive relationships. I hope that if a woman reads this and realizes it is happening to her that she can find the help she needs.
I also really liked how Tysinger ended this book. I won't give it away but the reconciliation and forgiveness involved was truly inspiring. I was very encouraged by the ability Livy had to be such a wonderful example.
Jack and Livy feel like old friends now. I loved the setting of the book too. And I hope that Tysinger has a second novel up her sleeve before too long because I need to read more of her writing!
The author sent me an advanced copy of this book. However I have also pre-ordered the Kindle version because I loved it so much. All opinions in this review are my own.
For fans of Nicholas Sparks and Pepper Basham, or who need an escape to a sweet Southern town—pick this novel up, and prepare to be whisked away to Laurel Cove, and have your heart touched.
*Disclaimer: I received an early copy of this book from the author with no expectation of a review. These are my own thoughts and opinions. And I loved it so much, I'm absolutely buying a copy, too.
Livy is going to the one place she can seek comfort. Like many of us, she is going to place that holds memories, fond times and quaint people. She went through extremely tough times, and the author gave glimmers of the “jerk” (would love to insert other word) that wounded Livy, made her skittish and broken. One theme is the healing of Livy in this story, seeing her become a strong woman again.Jack was a delight. He was a smitten kitten with Livy from childhood and he should her southern charm in her return. I loved that he was kind and patient building with Livy. He represented small town hospitality and grace, through out the book.
I want to crawl in between the pages and visit with these two often. The town of Laurel Cove sounds like the perfect place to visit, buy a house and solidify roots. I was caught up with envisioning it in a “At Home in Mitford” style community. I am sure those towns people get up to some great side stories while the reader is away
