Cross My Heart ( A Legacy of Faith #2)



Two broken paths lead toward God’s redemption in the next installment of Robin Lee Hatcher’s Legacy of Faith series.

Ashley Showalter and Ben Henning have so much in common. Both were raised by single moms. Both want to help where they see a need. And both work with horses in the Idaho valley. Ashley runs a horse rescue operation, while Ben has started an equine therapy barn on his great-great grandfather’s farm—and both Ashley and Ben have the feeling that there could be something more between them.

But they share something else that may drive them apart if the truth is ever revealed. Ben is a recovering alcoholic with ten years of sobriety behind him, while Ashley’s brother, Dylan, is an opioid addict, currently residing in court-ordered rehab. Ashley has promised herself she would never walk knowingly into the chaos created by addiction—because in her mind, addicts can never be fully cured. But with God, all things are possible. Will Ashley find it within herself to give love a chance, or will her brother’s mistakes jeopardize her future with Ben?


I was not disappointed in this book! I can always count on Robin for a good story and she definitely delivered. 

In fact, when I opened it I was delighted to find Andrew and Helen were included because when we left off on the first book they still had a story to tell!! 

I was also delighted to learn that my grandparents lived in this time period as well. They were wonderful storyteller. I miss them greatly!! 
Ben and Ashley remind me of me and my husband. We too have many things in common. Ashley is a girl after my own heart for her love of horses and wanting to help. 
I think it is neat that God gave us animals to help us heal. It truly amazes me how animals sense these things. 
Ben is cool. I love how he turned his life around. Too often, I see many men who don't want to help themselves.

I strongly recommend this book! You'll be taken away by this story and won't want to come back to earth so to speak! I received a copy of this book from Netgalley. No compensations were received. All opinions are my own!!
