Dr. Gabe Allen makes it a point never to date someone he works with, and for good reason!  That really hasn't been a problem until he met Larissa Brockman.  Larissa is an ER nurse whose faith and gentle kindness appeal to Gabe.  When he helps her out after an accident, they find they are really drawn to each other.  Can two people who have deep wounds find healing in each other?

This was a great little story.  I enjoyed my visit to Crystal Lake and meeting the folks there.  The hospital is certainly a busy place and sometimes even dangerous.  Gabe was such a nice guy.  You could see what Larissa saw in him.  Larissa had experienced things that caused her to have an inner strength and a strong faith, or so she thought, until it was tested.  Forgiveness isn't easy and it's something, I'm sure, each one of us, at some point, has struggled with.  This story held my interest and I thoroughly enjoyed the author's easy writing style.  My only complaint would be that I felt the ending, though great, was a bit abrupt.  However, it is noted by the author that this novella was written to introduce the reader to the characters of Crystal Lake, which it did.  I look forward to reading a Soldier's Promise as well as other works by this author.
