Brian Richards has been working through lots of difficult issues over the last year. When he returns to his military career he finds himself stationed near where Taya Mitchell lives. In dealing with the loss of his leg and PTSD, one of things he did was walk away from Taya because he felt he was not whole anymore. Now he's back and ready to pursue a relationship. But a moment of time changes everything and Brian is devastated. Now angry at God and the world, he decides to return to his combat team hoping he won't survive. But before her goes, he takes a road trip to Missouri, where he remembers visiting his grandparents, in hopes of finding some kind of peace. What he finds is Mac. A woman who is dealing with her own demons. As their friendships builds, he finds himself longing for home and the possibility of love. But duty calls. Will Brian work through all the anger and pain? Will he return to Missouri and find the love and home he so greatly craves?

This was an excellent sequel to Calling Me Home. When I finished the first book I longed to hear Brian's story and how everything worked out. Once again this author delivers a great relationship-driven story. That's something that just keeps me quickly turning pages. I loved it! Seeing how the characters deal with their struggles always encourages me, in some way, on how to deal with mine. There was a twist in the story I didn't see coming and it caught me by surprise. As a reader I didn't like it, (at first) but let me tell you, it truly enhanced the story. The characters are ones that you can easily relate to. I felt like they were hometown friends. I loved how the author brought to light the fact that whatever we have belongs to God. In Brian's case, even his leg. That's a powerful message and one I think we tend to forget. If you enjoy satisfying endings, then you are in for a real treat! Though this is a sequel, you could read it as a stand alone but I would recommend you read the stories in order. It will make your reading experience much richer. I would also encourage you not to miss the author's note at the end. I'm looking forward to seeing more by this author!
