ABOUT THE BOOK
Quirky Fiona McGrath loves her job as a Child Life Specialist at a Dunedin, Florida hospital. As a former foster child, she understands trauma and wants to ensure no child ever faces the same kind of fears she once did. But are fears truly in the past?
Gabe Cavenaugh’s life is right on schedule. As the youngest assistant Chief Financial Officer in the hospital’s history, he has much to prove, but he’s confident he can do anything he’s asked. After all, he’s secure in his faith and has the constant support of his family.
When Gabe is directed to make cuts in order to balance the hospital’s budget, his search leads him to the Child Life Program and to Fiona. How can this crazy, hat-wearing woman, who rides around on a sparkly scooter possibly be a vital member of the medical team?
As Fiona works to persuade Gabe about her job’s necessity, he begins to see there’s more to her and her work with young patients than wacky clothes.
But will she be enough to save her program? And could she possibly be enough for a man like Gabe?
As always, Seilstad writes another wonderful book with twists and turns that will make you want to love these characters so much.
I enjoyed the book very much. I stayed up late into the night to finish this book it was so good!
In some places there are scenes that will make you want to cry, smile and root for Fiona, Gabe, Alexis, and others.
This is another book that will leave you thinking about it long after it's done.
There wasn't anything in the book that I didn't like because to me it was perfect.
I love a good read.
Lorna sends a good message through the character Gabe. You know, for someone that wants to cut something out he sure is full of it. By this, I mean he should look at himself in the mirror before he tells someone else this. Yes, we can tell someone that is how we should be but for to live it can be the most difficult thing to do. It's easy to tell someone else but until you've actually been through it yourself. Well, let's just leave it there. This is why Gabe gives me mixed signals. I really do understand that he means well. But....???
“I could stand here all day telling you that you’re more than enough for me, but until you believe it for yourself, until you believe you are who God made you to be, my words mean nothing.”
I feel Fiona is a great person she just has insecurities like the rest of us do. Only I think some of us try to hide it better than others do
Me, I don't hide it so well. I never was very good at that sort of thing. I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve so to speak.
I love what she does for a living. I wish more people like her were out there. If there were, I think a lot of people would be able to handle their situations so much better.
I think that this would be a keeper to add to my shelf because this author writes some amazing stories!
I met this author through the book above and I was a forever fan. So, when I seen this book I knew I had to read it. It was soooooooo very gooooood!!!
I highly recommend this book! You won't want to put it down.
I was NOT Required to write a review. All opinions stated above are my own. NO compensations were received.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
For as long as I can remember, I loved writing. I even dreamed in plots. I also grew up attending antique auctions nearly every weekend, so history was as much a part of my life as chores on our farm in Iowa, reading books, and playing with Barbies.
So, writing historical romances fit perfectly. Times may change, the style of clothes, the way we speak, but the common threads that unite us remain the same. Couples fall in love. Injustices
happen. We fight for what we believe in. We struggle. We endure. We grow.
After graduating from York College in York, Nebraska with an A.A. and then receiving a B.S.Ed. from Lubbock Christian University, I met and married the love of my life, David. God had
written our love story, and I knew from the moment we met that he was the one. It was not love at first sight by any means, but I was so sure he was "it" that I wrote that I'd met the man I would marry in my diary. We pledged our hearts to one another two and half years later.
I taught high school English until my oldest child was born. After that I began my career as a professional wiper. I wiped noses, counter tops, tiny tushes, tears, and scraped knees.
Deciding that my children were now older and less in need of my constant supervision, I started pursuing my first love again --writing. After joining American Christian Fiction Writers, I found a wonderful critique group and began studying the craft of writing.
David and I have three children ages 18, 16, and 11. We also work in youth ministry and teach youth and adult Bible classes.
Thank you so much for stopping by, friend!
