He lost his brother. She lost her dream. Together, they might find what they’re really looking for.
Holly Stanford is doing the best she can with the restaurant she inherited from her late uncle. But after her fiancé abandons her and the business, Holly regrets having given up her dream of becoming a pastry chef. Now a few bad financial decisions might cost her everything, including her hope for the future.
Jed Henning has done well with his new company despite his prodigal brother’s behavior. When Jed‘s father, the controlling member of the board of directors, temporarily suspends operations until his sons work out their differences, Jed resentfully chases his brother, Chris, to Boise. There Jed rents a basement apartment from Holly and hopes to convince Chris to get his act together before their company collapses.
Unaware that Holly is the one person who can help him get through to Chris, Jed starts the tough work of reconciliation armed with little more than a few family photographs, a stack of old letters, and a Bible that belonged to his great-grandfather, Andrew Henning. And as romance blossoms between Holly and Jed, the story of Jed’s great-grandfather highlights the power of God across the generations and the legacy of a family’s courageous faith.
A mission of reconciliation, discovery of family history, and a chance at love.
I was thrilled to get the chance to catch up yet again with the Hennings as Andrew and Helen navigate the challenges of aging, meanwhile in the present their great grandson Jed struggles to find himself and rebuild family ties. Jed has worked non-stop the last few years to make his brother's vision a reality, taking little time for himself or personal relationships. I admired Jed for his level headed approach to things, he takes responsibility, and is a natural leader.
Holly is struggling to make ends meet, while dreaming of a future doing what she loves. I loved her heart for others and how she loves to share what she has with others, even when her life is far from perfect.
I loved returning to the Hennings family as this book continues to follow Andrew and Helen decades previous, while also catching up with their descendants in the present. The dual timelines are well written and compliment each other well. I loved the themes of faith and commitment, as Jed takes time to consider things he hasn't had time for the in the past. A heartwarming and enjoyable read about family, faith, new opportunities and lasting love.
