Legacy of Love by Christine Johnson

I like to read this author and she does not disappoint. she takes a character through their paces and they always evolve so nicely. this one was a man who had been in war and had scars that were deep,not ones so noticeable to the average person but deep within.
I had a soft spot for Brandon Landers because he seemed to have both weakness and strength together in him...when he met Annie she brought out the best in him.

When he learned that she and her mother were

I'm a sucker for military veteran stories, so when I read this I thought "wow". Feelings of unworthiness are wrought from the guilt of surviving the Great War... he needs someone to cheer him up! And the ending-ending is just the icing on the cake:)

Legacy of Love is set in 1922/23 at features a girl who comes from a family hard on their luck, and a man who (as it turns out) is in the same situation (but everyone thinks he is rich). There's plenty of the usual misunderstanding, and as a Love Inspired novel features many discussions on faith, and how faith can help us through challenges. I usually don't read novels set after 1900, but I did enjoy this one, and am glad I picked it up. It was interesting to see what the treasure was!

Also I lov

Another cozy romance with characters who will warm your heart from Christine Johnson. Set in the same era as Downton Abbey, her stories take you back to a time more simple - or was it? A touch of suspense keeps you guessing until the end.

Anna Simmons dreams of faraway places and hidden treasures. Brandon Landers wants to make his family's old summer place his home. Sparks fly when they realize how intertwined their families are, and not for the good. Will the rumors of a hidden treasure bring th

If you don't like a pull on your heartstrings you may not like this book. For this truly touches you and allows glimpses into the past and how people handled things back then. The Heroine in this story Anna Simmons, loses her home she grew up in. You are then taking on a journey to her finding forgiveness for her own sins and dealing with her feelings towards Brandon Landers.

When we are allowed to see the story from Brandon's eyes we learn he also is dealing with a past he would rather forget a

The characters were interesting and the romance between them was fairly nice. However, around the last hundered pages it felt very long; there was nothing to keep you interested until the last 10-20 pages.

I liked the idea of this book much more than the actual story. One of the rare Love Inspired books that took me a bit to finish.
