Garner's story, though, was surprisingly moving for a short novella. He makes mistakes, does things that aren't okay by Christian standards. But through his journal entries, he shows a lot of growth and maturation.
It took me a while to figure out how the story precisely ties in to (or rather, sets up) the upcoming series, as I didn't notice any dates early on. But by the end I figured it out, and I'd love to see how Garner's story will affect the three girls in the upcoming books. I'm really looking forward to book one!

Then Came You is a prequel novella that starts a new series , Bradford Sisters, by Becky Wade. This may be a novella ,but it is packed with hurt, lost, anger, heartache, and heart full of love. A man struggles because of choices he made in his life. In this novella the author uses journal entries, phone calls, and letters telling his story. A man that I felt so sorry for and at times I felt like crying. Becky Wade’s books are good and this is another one you do not want to miss out on. I cant wait for the first book in this series .
I loved the cover when I first saw it. I thought the background was maybe a college campus until I read the novella. Interesting... I can't want to wait the next story that releases May 2nd, one day before my birthday. What a great gift!
If you read this novella, and I hope you do....it's free right now, you'll get a snippet of the new book at the end. All about the middle Bradford Sister, Nora.
This novella was free and I was not required to write a review.
Told in a completely different style than I’ve ever seen from Becky Wade, Then Came You moves seamlessly from Garner Bradford’s journal entries to text messages to phone messages all the while telling the story of a flawed young man whose first big act of rebellion lands him in single parenthood. The story begins with the words, “Sylvie left me today,” stark, yet on point. Starting at the end of his relationship, Garner then reflects back on what likely caused Sylvie to walk out on him and their 4-week-old daughter, Willow. As he places new entries in his journal, readers see his evolution from grief to anger to resentment to grudging acceptance.
Kathleen E. Burke reluctantly takes her brand new business degree to a job at Bradford Shipping deep in the bowels of the Customer Service department. She spends her days wearing a headset and talking consolingly to disgruntled customers but every spare minute she writes reports and sends them to the head of the company on ways the company can improve their bottom line. Until Garner’s father dies, leaving him in charge, no one ever sees her suggestions. Will Garner see the gem that’s been hidden in obscurity all this time?
I absolutely loved this style of writing. I saw Garner’s emotions as they unfolded but he tended to write most often when he was feeling grief. Kathleen’s entries, especially those with her friend Rose and those of her mother to Kathleen, were often there for comic relief.
If you are a fan of Becky Wade’s, you will not be disappointed in Then Came You! It’s the story of one man’s fall from grace and his eventual redemption. It’s also the story of an unexpected love on the heels of both an illicit love and a convenient love. Currently a Kindle freebie, Then Came You kicks of Wade’s Bradford Sisters Trilogy and I, for one, can hardly wait until True to You hits the shelves May 2!
