“My Soul rejoices in the hope of meeting the other half. Will today be the day?”
Valentine’s Day isn’t just for February 14th anymore! Love should be celebrated every day of the year. That’s Thornton Fielding’s philosophy. In spite of a few false starts in the arena of love, he holds out hope he’ll eventually find the woman of his dreams. The problem? He loves his job, and there’s no end in sight to his travels. But when Thornton returns to his tiny hometown of Cherish, Minnesota, he meets a beautiful and intriguing woman he believes might be God’s answer to ending his bachelor status—permanently. Vara Alexandris is soured on love and scoffs at the notion of soul mates. But soon after meeting the handsome and unconventional Thornton, the speech and language pathologist suspects he might be the perfect ally to help jump-start her stroke patient’s recovery—if only Vara can keep Thornton grounded in Cherish long enough. This man who spouts romanticized and idealistic ideas about love seems all too eager to resume his world travels. Could it be Thornton actually prefers globetrotting in order to avoid a romantic relationship? Is it time for Vara to call the dreamer’s bluff? And can Thornton convince Vara to put past heartache behind her and trust in God’s plan for her heart?
I thought this book was pretty good. It was a cute love story. It was fun to get to know Vara and Thornton. There is a very strong scripture message of hope and forgiveness in Jesus. Its such an important truth to share. I think there are important truth’s and a gospel message that the characters and the reader can learn. I found that as the story continued, almost every conversation was something spiritual or about the gospel message. It started to sound more like preaching then the natural flow of conversation which took away from the story plot. It made it a little harder to relate to the characters. I think this is a good story with great potential. I am interested in reading other books by JoAnn Durgin.
I recommend this book to family and friends.
I received this book from the publisher to read and give my honest opinion.
