Widow by Denise Weimer



Jennifer Rushmore has overseen the restoration of Michael Johnson's ancestors’ doctor’s house long enough to work through their initial differences. They’ve begun applying the lessons of family and community learned from the past. Now the apothecary shop discloses a heart-breaking tale circa 1870 Georgia, shaking loose Jennifer’s own carefully suppressed past. She fears that when Michael sees beyond her façade, her tentative steps toward trust and love may disintegrate into rubble. On her journey to forgiveness, Jennifer draws on her new faith and friendships, even as the mysterious accidents clouding her first preservation job escalate into imminent danger


After having trouble with allergies in my eyes this year I was able to finally finish this book
This is another great read by Denise Weimer who has the knack if blending past with present as she brings her characters to life. 
This wonderful novel talks about forgiveness which was what our Pastor Goia preached on for the last month.
You totally need to forgive others before you can move on and have peace in your own life.
I am living example for I still have not forgiven my father before he passed away.
Jennifer os a courageous woman yet she is afraid to love and to put herself out there or just to be around pp in general. Fortunately she has a wonderful group of friends out there who are willing to give her a nudge in the right direction. Jennifer begins to heal through the wonderful love of friends and most of a loving God. 
Charlotte has been dealt a rough blow through her husband Stuart. Even though ppl have tried to warn her she is heard Headed like me and wouldn't listen. Because she wouldn't listen she learned things about her husband the hard way!! Somehow, through all of these things, she has learned to forgive those who have hurt her including any family members. 
A favorite verse of mine is I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. 
Power of forgiveness is an awesome thing. For without it, we can never truly heal! 
Michael is still struggling with this but together I believe that he and Jennifer will ha together. 
Who knows maybe something special will happen between them. Only in God's timing will they know.
I loved this book! I can't wait until the 3rd book!! Thanks for another wonderful book Denise Weimer! ! Sorry I took so long to read this book! I rely enjoyed it!


I'm a native Georgia resident, writer and history lover. My four-book, mid-1800s Georgia Gold Series with Canterbury House Publishing (SAUTEE SHADOWS, THE GRAY DIVIDE, THE CRIMSON BLOOM, and BRIGHT AS GOLD) combines historical romance with a touch of mystery. BRIGHT AS GOLD won the 2015 John Esten Cooke award for Southern literature. New in 2016, the Restoration Trilogy (WHITE, WIDOW, and WITCH) features a modern, suspenseful romantic over-story of a historical preservation grad helping a brooding bachelor restore his family property (house, apothecary and log cabin) with three historical back stories they uncover from three different centuries. I'm also the author of historical novella REDEEMING GRACE and numerous magazine articles set in Northeast Georgia. I'm a wife, swim mom of two daughters, and for many years directed a vintage dance group.
