A beautiful love story 

and a can't put down book! 
I enjoyed the book and the characters in it. There wasn't really nothing that I didn't like about the book. It was all very well written.
Everyone does wrong. Not just the preacher's kids. 
Hurt does not go away it just gets buried and festers until we can't stand it no more. It can make or break a relationship depending on whether or not you can forgive that person. 
Oh yes, forgiveness is hard! Very hard but, it can be done. As Preacher Peterson says it would be what Jesus would want. We are forgiven. 
There are no secrets where God is concerned. He knows everything even when we try to hide it.
I can relate to Donna and Bobbys hardships. I lost two children myself. I've always wondered what they would've been. 
I believe that the Lord put us in certain places at certain times. He does it bc it can help us grow and learn about Him and get others to come to Him. 
I strongly recommend this book. It's definitely worth reading 
I received this book for free. No compensation was received and all opinions are my own opinion

Guest Post from Michelynn Christy & Brandi Gabriel

Take a step back in time…
If He Only Knew is a novel set in the late 1960s. The book deals with family relationships, loyalty, friendship, love, and loss. The main topic is somewhat controversial in nature, but we won’t mention what it is lest we spoil the story for readers. A similar book was written in a different genre under another name and the story really resonated with readers. We felt compelled to share this story with others who perhaps wouldn’t pick up that particular genre, and that is how this book came about. It may be set in the sixties, but the message is as relevant today as ever. Our prayer is that God will touch readers’ hearts and draw them closer to Him.
