Sarah Sundin has been one of my go to writers ever since I discovered her books last year. She has never disappointed me yet. She always delivers a story that is real and loved by her readers. Her main characters in this story are Lillian and Arch.
Lillian and Arch desires to be loved despite their handicaps, flaws or lifestyles. They both do not believe it's possible. It almost becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy for both. Lillian doesn't think anyone can look behind her wooden leg. Her heart is closed and she won't let anyone in. She had a horrible experience in the past and is so afraid it will happen again.
Arch has lived a privileged life. He joins the Military to escape the trappings of being rich. He doesn't trust that someone can love him for whom he is and not what his name represents.
Arch and Lillian meet. They each have their own secrets and pain that they endure silently. They are attracted to each other but their chance of a relationship is null until they Trust in the Lord and know deep in their hearts He is Their Anchor.
As the story develops, Arch and Lillian let down their guards and realize love might just be possible.
This is not just a love story. This book involves a mystery to be solved by Arch and Lillian. As a team, they learn to accept what they can not change, solve a mystery and learn that love is possible.
I rate this 5 stars! I stayed up very late one night to finish this. Absolutely loved it!
I received this free to review.
