After reading several novels where the main and only point is the romance, it is refreshing to read a novel where there is more to the story. The three children are important characters and a lot of the story revolves about them grieving their father and getting used to their new life with Jennings.
The reader also meets Jennings’ sister, Lydia, husband Palmer and their children. It is through this family that Jennings meets Marianne Walker. And it is also Lydia and Palmer to whom Jennings turns when he starts wondering about the Bible and Christ.
One thing I really like about this book and the series is how the author seamlessly includes portions of sermons and Bible verses. It’s not “preachy” and the sermons serve a purpose in the story.
Another aspect I really like is how the romance is handled; it’s sweet, it’s simple, it’s chaste.

Throughly enjoyed this book in the series, it shows how the power of God can work in the lives of people, and that He is still working miracles when we least expect Him too. The power of God working in the believers is awesome. A definite recommend read.

One of the most touching stories of how genuine salvation changes a man from the inside out. The faith of three young orphaned children who still trust God will make you weep. What a powerful message of how godly parents SHOULD be raising their children - to stand on and in their own faith.
