This is such a beautiful book and I loved the qualities the hero (Carter) and the heroine (Bailee) had in the book. Carter and Bailee had experienced hard times, but they did not let that harden them. Bailee had been disappointed in love and never expected to marry. Carter had lived through a traumatic experience as a child and was considered a loner. It was really by chance that they met each other and married. I loved reading how they grew to respect and love each other in the book. There were also changes each had to make and I thought that was moving as well. I did not want their story to end and I hope I will still get glimpses of their life together in the rest of the series. Jodi Thomas is a new author for me and I am so happy to have found her. I cannot wait to read the rest of her books.
