Someplace Familiar by Teresa Tysinger

Laurel Cove, North Carolina is the place you want to go to.  It's a small community with good neighbors and people who care.  Livy has fond memories of spending time there with her grandmother.  She is trying to forget the abusive relationship she just escaped from.  Her grandmother's old home is up for sale.  Maybe this was God's plan for her.

Jack never left Laurel Cove.  He grew up there and continued running the family hardware store.  He married and was ready to have a happy life.  A year ago he divorced after his wife was caught cheating.  He couldn't forgive her.

What does it take for Livy and Jack to forgive their past?  How can they move forward and break free from the hurt, the negative comments, the abusing behaviors?

Forgiveness is the key to healing.  Letting go of your anger and fears through forgiveness gives you peace.  The other party doesn't control you.  They have no power.

Livy and Jack learn that with forgiveness it gives them a fresh start....a new beginning to really experience God's love.

I found it appropriate that Livy was an artist.
Every time she starts a new painting, she begins with a new blank canvas.  This clean canvas is what Livy needs to start her new life in Laurel Cove.

I loved the ending.  I won't say much but Livy shows much compassion and forgiveness that you might be shocked.

I received this free to review.
