Rekindled: The Story of Kathryn & Larson Jennings. Loved this one!! I think the coolest lesson learned here was the story of when life seems like all has failed and God has abandoned you, He is right next to you. Although you may not know why some things happen it normally shapes you to who God has intended you to become.
From the back:
Ten years ago Kathryn Jennings made a vow. For better or worse. And that promise still holds true, even though her marriage has not turned out as she expected. When her husband fails to return home one stormy winter night, she struggles to keep their ranch, but her efforts are blocked at every turn. After a shocking glimpse into her husband’s past, Kathryn uncovers a hidden truth. What she wouldn’t give to turn back time and be able to love her husband for the man that he was, not for the man she always wanted him to be. Larson Jennings has spent his entire life running from a broken past, unable to trust, reluctant to try again. One fateful night, his life takes an unexpected twist, and soon he is forced to make a choice. Whatever he chooses, his decision may cost him his life.
Revealed: The story of Annabelle Grayson & Matthew Taylor. This one especially hit home for me to know what it is to be forgiven and to never look down or judge someone else. In the end the person holding the judgement is sinning just the same as the sinner they think they are above.
From the back cover:
Words, once spoken, can mend a broken life…or cripple it. But words left unspoken can haunt the soul, inflicting a far deeper wound. Annabelle Grayson has been given a second chance at life, but she can’t claim it with the cloud of her past hanging over her in Willow Springs. After her husband dies, she advertises for a trail guide to accompany her to land waiting for her in Idaho—and a most unlikely candidate applies for the job. Matthew Taylor is a man on the run, with consequences of past mistakes pursuing him at every turn. Meeting Annabelle Grayson the first time was unpleasant enough, but when she crosses his path again, her presence in his life—and what she reveals—is devastating. If given a single wish, Matthew would turn back time and right a grievous wrong. If given a second wish, he would make Annabelle Grayson pay.
Remembered: The story of Veronique Girard & Jack Brennan. This was actually my least favorite of the series. I think because I related to it the least and because Jack didn’t have as much depth as some of the previous characters. It did have a great lesson of how God leads your path even though it doesn’t look how you thought it might. God’s path is always more rewarding.
From the back cover:
Though loss is often marked in a single moment, letting go of someone you love can take a lifetime. The threat of war—and a final request—send Véronique Girard from France to a distant and uninviting country. In the Colorado Territory, she searches for the man who has held her heart since childhood—her father. Pierre Girard left Paris for the Americas to seek his fortune in fur trading, vowing to send for his wife and daughter. But twenty-five years have passed and his vow remains unfulfilled. Sifting through shards of broken promises, Véronique embarks on a dangerous search for a man she scarcely remembers. His grief finally healed, Jack Brennan is moving on with life. After years of guiding families west, he is now working as a freighter to the mining towns surrounding Willow Springs. What he doesn’t count on is an unexpected traveling companion on his trips up into the mountains, and how one woman’s search will cause havoc with his plans… and his life.
I actually didn’t receive these in exchange for a review I bought these because a friend suggested them! Loved them!
