Raw emotions, true connections, fragile future plans, turmoil in the soul from the past, and growing faith and trust in God's guidance... All the feels hit home in this heartfelt story of reunited teenage sweethearts who have faced more hardship than most in their lifetimes.
A secret baby is not my favorite type of tale yet here it is done in a delicate, different way with a twist that I came to respect the decisions as the story unfolded.
I admired the maturity of Addie Ricci and Evan Hawke, as they are reunited and working together to fix the B&B. Evan's relationship with Addie's little boy was adorable, that cute little kid stealing my heart as well.
There is so much both Addie and Evan have had to deal with. The struggles are real, the pain at times palpable, the growth and development of their hearts, minds, faith, and souls is a beautiful journey to be witnessing. The way the author has imbedded the faith the protagonists have in God is done in a natural, lifelike matter, it was easy to relate to.
It is only after everything else from the past is resolved that Addie and Evan can have a chance for a future together, and the heartache of the road to peace of mind and joy of the soul brought tears to my eyes.
An adorable, deeply-felt tale of love, life, faith, and family
