    Sweet tale of romance resumed after a seven year absence.A huge thank you to Brittany for letting me borrow this one!

    This was a good book of second chances. Seven years after their marriage ended in divorce, Meg contacts Wyatt to ask for his emotional support after the death of her mother. Wyatt is struggling with survival guilt and depression after the death of a close friend and fellow marine but he immediately agrees to come to Meg’s aid. Wyatt is a great guy and, it seems to me, was in no way responsible for the divorce. Meg, on the other hand, still seem...

    Christian Faithfulness Second Chance RomanceThis is a wonderful and warm Christian romance. The entire story is faith-filled. The hero is a young Marine who has left the service and come home. He has quite a bit of baggage from his combat tours and the loss that comes with it. It is as much a story about giving our problems to God to solve as it is about a second chance romance. This author always delivers a well thought out story with the Bible ...

    Couldn't Put it Down!!!!Wonderful story of mistakes made but Redeem by God!!! We all have made mistakes and many we regret. But allowing God to heal us and take first place in our lives is the only only way!!! That is what Meg and Wyatt learn in this story as we walk with them.

    4 starsNice Christian romance. Not preachy, just wise advice from scripture in dealing with death, love, marriage, youthful mistakes, and accepting what God has in store for each individual. Good, inspiration read.
  • Ellen White
    Good story once again by Leah, of healing and second chances. It took a sorrow to bring them together once again, and a commitment of long ago. Could the past be forgiven, and new vows be made. Readers will definitely want to read this and welll as others by Leah.
  • Betty Hansford
    Second ChancesThis book proves that second chances, while not always easy, can be successful, if you really have faith and believe that God has a plan for your life. You just have to trust Him.
  • Kimberly Olson
    Loved this book!!! Leah Atwood is a great author. I couldn't stop reading. Once married several years before two were struggling with their own tragedy. Who knew they come to help each other heal and in time they formed a new relationship.
  • Gina
    I loved this story of young love going bad, but having a second chance 7 years later. This story had tears in my eyes, such emotion written in here. It reminds us of the importance of having God at the center of our lives.
  • Sandra Kent
    A great storySecond chances are usually humbling and requiring forgiveness. Story of friendship, receiving forgiveness, hope for tomorrow and God's love spiken to our heart. Don't give up on God and His plan.
  • Ann Davis
    Sweet, gentle romancemFaith filled, respectful romance stories touch me every time. There's enough political mess, take a knee mess and unfairness in the world I don't want to read about more of the same.
  • Patricia
    a heartwarming clean romance. Trusting GOD is not an easy thing for any of us.
  • Pat
    Characters were interesting, but story-line was boring.

    Book 1I would love to see more reconciliations like this. Can't wait to read the next one! I recommend it to everyone, but especially to people who have been divorced.
  • Edith G Shearer
    Great story, hard to put down, highly. Recommend!!!!!!!Good flow to story, hard to put down. Highly recommended to one and all who loves a story that ends well.
  • Tanya
    3.5 stars rounded up. I appreciate Leah Atwood's writing. I know I'll read very beautiful and wonderful Christian thoughts while reading a sweet, clean romance. It doesn't feel overly preachy. The romance felt very real (as in could happen in real life) and the characters like someone you would meet in real life. That being said, I guess I was in the mood for a plot with a little more curve balls.
  • Sue Stinnett
    Healing LoveNo matter how much you love someone life can get in the way if you allow it especially when your faith in God is weak. Fortunately God doesn't give up on us. Just a as he brings this couple a second chance at love and the desires of their hearts.
  • Linda Rainey
