He lost his brother. She lost her dream. Together, they might find what they’re really looking for.
Holly Stanford is doing the best she can with the restaurant she inherited from her late uncle. But after her fiancé abandons her and the business, Holly regrets having given up her dream of becoming a pastry chef. Now a few bad financial decisions might cost her everything, including her hope for the future.
Jed Henning has done well with his new company despite his prodigal brother’s behavior. When Jed‘s father, the controlling member of the board of directors, temporarily suspends operations until his sons work out their differences, Jed resentfully chases his brother, Chris, to Boise. There Jed rents a basement apartment from Holly and hopes to convince Chris to get his act together before their company collapses.
Unaware that Holly is the one person who can help him get through to Chris, Jed starts the tough work of reconciliation armed with little more than a few family photographs, a stack of old letters, and a Bible that belonged to his great-grandfather, Andrew Henning. And as romance blossoms between Holly and Jed, the story of Jed’s great-grandfather highlights the power of God across the generations and the legacy of a family’s courageous faith.

Other Books in the Series
When you pick up a Robin Lee Hatcher book you know it's going to be good!
When I finished reading Ben and Ashley's story, I thought that was the end so I was pleasantly surprised to see this one.
Hatcher has done a nice job in tying the past with the present together once again.
I think what fascinated me the most about this book was that Andrew and Helen were able to live to see all of these historical events! How wonderful would it have been to see things like that! Imagine how many generations can live in one house too! I love historical homes.
In the present we really don't see much changing because in my opinion it's already happened. I think that's why I'd love to travel back in time to see all of these wonderful events and maybe just maybe get to meet Neil Armstrong.
While reading Andrew and Helen's part of the story I felt like I re-learned a few medical terminology that I had forgotten about.
Andrew is my favorite character so I was glad to see him return in this novel. I liked him because he was strong in his faith even when things in his life were going wrong he turned to the Lord for his needs. I know that had to have been hard to do because it is for me. I'm trying to do better. I've even been trying to keep a daily journel.
Jeb was another story altogether. So much anger and hatred! Wow! I felt that coming through the pages of the book!
They say that Jeb's a handsome man but looks really aren't everything. In my opinion, it's what is in the heart is what really counts and of course it's what God really looks at too.
But, you know I really ended up liking him. I'm not going to say why because I don't want to give the story away!
Holly was a sweet lady. Poor thing really struggled!
In different circumstances there were times when I wanted to sit and cry or just give up but of course I didn't.
As you read this book my hope is that you'll see what this references to. I figured it out right away where this was going but again Hatcher has done such an amazing job.that she'll make you think twice. She did me.
I finished this book last night. I finished it 4 am in the morning. I just didn't want to put it down..
I wanted to see if Jeb could work out his problems with his brother. I found myself rooting for them.
This is the third book in the series and I think, think it's the last. But, we'll see.
Also, there are some Bible verses that written throughout this book and I actually looked up a couple and a few I had memorized from going to church myself.
Bibles are special. They are God's word and I especially liked this one because each family member that received it treasured it always.
I know I did mine! I have my grandpa's and there are a bunch of names that are written in there. I like that.
Anyway, I highly recommend this book because you'll not want to put it down until you finish. This book will leave you feeling full and satisfied after a good read. Kind of like a wonderful dessert
My thanks to Netgalley and Thomas Nelson publishing for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review and all opinions are mine.
