Trish James is going through a very difficult time. Loosing her husband, trying to help her son cope with the situation as well as trying to make it on her own is draining the life of out of her. But she is determined to do it on her own. Even if that means leaving Miller's Creek. Andy Tyler has had a difficult life. He longs for a family of his own. Trish definitely sparks his interest and he's very fond of her son, Bo. He wants to help Trish, but she is one stubborn and determined woman. Can Andy help her see that she doesn't have to do it all on her own? Will Trish learn that trusting in the Lord with all your heart, means she does it His way not hers?
I loved this second installment in the Miller's Creek Series. This author writes straight from the heart and you can feel that as you read the story. In many ways I found myself convicted, because I know how easy it is to want to control everything instead of trusting in the Lord. Trish was a frustrating woman, but very true to life. Andy Tyler is a heart-be-still kind of hero. I loved watching him with Trish and Bo and admired how he handled things. He was a great example of living out 'trusting in the Lord'. I appreciated the message that God doesn't waste any of our pain. That's such a comfort when difficult times come along. And we all know they do. I also loved seeing Dani, Steve and Mama Beth again. It was so nice to have them play such active parts in this story too. If you enjoy a good story with a wonderful message then stop by Miller's Creek. Don't forget to bring your appetite, cause Mama Beth is the best cook around!
