I have read other novels written by this author and here is another masterpiece of a story that will touch your heart and keep you reading until the very last page. While it shows in the pages that the past in each players life cannot be changed the present can be redeemed which influences their futures.
The small town pastor’s character has never been married, waiting for God to bring him a special help mate. Now the various women of the congregation set him up on several blind dates, to which he successfully stops after s several attempts. Wait to see how he meets a possible companion as with a personality that is vivacious and delightful!
Audiences will be richly rewarded when taking time to curl up with the latest fictional work presented to us by Anita Higman. Personally, I cannot wait to see what she cranks out next not just to entertain her readers, but touch their hearts as well! Grab a couple copies and give them as presents this holiday season, the story goes well with your favorite blend of tea!
