Callie Phillips has a past she's not proud of and one event she just
can't quite put to rest. Though she's closed off her heart, she finds
peace as a music director at Queen of Angles Church and choir teacher at
school. Luke West is an EMT who has a passion for the sanctity of life.
He's also been the rock his brother has leaned on, especially where his
daughter, Dawn, is concerned. Dawn loves music and when Callie hears
her sing she decides to help Dawn embrace her talent. Luke finds himself
drawn to Callie. He sees a beautiful, talented woman with a loving
heart. Callie's heart responds to Luke but she knows that once he knows
about her past he'll want nothing to do with her. Will Luke forgive her
past and show Callie she is worthy to be loved? Will Callie be able to
open her heart to the possibility of love?
In this second
installment of the Sal's Place Series we meet Callie and see how she
deals with a very emotional event in her past. Something I'm sure many
have dealt with. Callie was very likable and I felt like her emotions
rang true. Luke was a level-headed guy with a heart as big as Texas and I
liked the way he responded to Callie! Dawn was a such a cute and sweet
little girl. I enjoyed getting to know her. This story did not have
quite the playfulness Search and Rescue had, but we do get to see Ryan
and Jennifer again, which was fun. One thing that kept coming to mind
while I was reading is that 'as far as the east is from the west so far
has God removed our transgressions from us'. If we're a believer, He
remembers our sins no more. Although we know that's true, a lot of folks
still struggle, just as Callie did, to let go of past transgressions.
But remember Lamentations 3:22-23 'the steadfast love of the Lord never
ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning;
great is His faithfulness.' So...can God really make Beautiful Music
from a broken instrument? Drop by Sal's Place and find out!

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.
