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?
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!

I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
