I was pleasantly surprised by how much this novel affected me and practically made my heart cry for what it's worth. I was moved and was definitely pulled into this unique, brilliantly done novel. I rarely read Adult fiction but this novel compelled me right from the start.

Return to Me paints a portrait of a small town named Faithville where a Christian College called Faithville University was built. Jill, a dedicated housewife of University staff Dave and the mother of Lena, thought her life w

Salvation takes many forms. For Jill Edwards there was the journey through Hell to take and the uncertainty of the route she was taking. Was Jill condemning herself to a life of lies and guilt or was she finally freeing her soul to find what joys life can share? What ha

First off, I have to say that when I started reading this book I thought that this was not what I usually read, you see I love to read dark and erotic books so, I was a little nervous about it, but there was something in Jill Edwards that hooked me and made me keep reading. After finished it, I gave myself a round of applause because keep reading this book was the best decision I could make. I practically read it in about 3 or 4 hours, it is a short one and I could not put it down. Sleep was not ...more

What i like about the book is the main character, i admire Jill for being strong despite of what happened. I should have reacted the same way and should have made the same decision if i were in her shoes.The last part was just a bit too fast for me, i wanted to know more details about Lena's *****, you know what i mean if you already read it.

I want to see Sean! lol
This debut novel written by Taylor Law, speaks of courage and strength to go on despite of the complicated problems and negative vibes that surrounds someone. I admire Taylor for writing a story like this. It made me feel sad and happy at the same time. It taught me a few things in life that I will never find out in some stories.

It’s a fast-paced book, and a well-written story. You’ll get hooked as soon as you start reading it.I must say that this book is worth reading and remembering. It has a

"To find happiness, you have to experience sadness. To feel true love, you have to experience heartbreak. To succeed, you have to experience failure. Be grateful for all thst had happened. Every moment in your life leading up to this one has done something for you, and you must be thankful for it…whether it first appeared good or bad. You are stronger noe for it, wiser, and most importantly, braver."

Taylor W. Law's debut novel is a story of love, friendship, and discovery of oneself.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I'll be honest. Going into this book, I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy it. Not because I didn't think the synopsis sounded promising, but because this book is pretty far out of my usual reading comfort-zone. It's an adult romance novel, set in a Christian town. All of those things are very unrelated to my usual reading habits ;). However, once I started reading, I was instantly pulling into this story. I really enjoyed reading from

An excellent, emotional, enveloping story!
I read this in one sitting. I could not put it down! This book is SO well-written and it flows so smoothly that it completely kept my interest from beginning to end.
What intrigued me from the synopsis was that this story was inspired by real events. Seeing that expressly stated and keeping that in mind while I read gave this book a whole different flavor.
While I must admit, I was a little wary of where the story was headed when Jill first met her new ne

A thought provoking romance that examines faith, temptation and heart ache. Readers can emphasize with the characters as they are pulled into this story of rediscovering youth and living your dreams. A plot twist and almost happily ever afters make this a fun quick read.

"To find happiness, you have to experience sadness. To feel true love you have to experience heartbreak."

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I expected not to like it at all considering the religious elements in it since I am an atheist but I really enjoyed it.
This is not a book about love, friendship, family. This is about self-discovery and knowing where you belong in the world. I enjoyed reading about Jill's struggles a

I was sent this wonderful novel to review from Mr. Law and I must say it was absolutely fabulous!
I was completely transfixed in this book; the only thing that would make it better is if I could climb inside and live in it!
It was a beautiful story and the plot kept me wanting more.
I absolutely recommend this book and it's now live! Go and buy it now!

There is no better way to say this...

This novella made me sad.

Well written, and all too true to life these days, Taylor W Law's debut work of fiction Return to Me (TWL Publishing, 2015) is the story of a couple whose choices before, during, and after a significant family loss result in separation and divorce.

Based on true events "personally observed and experienced" by the author, this is a story about the neglect of (and yes, infidelity in) a significant relationship - one's marriage. Set again

I don't really know what the book is all about. I didn't read the blurb, simply because I want myself to get surprise on what's going to happen in the whole story.

Indeed, this book surprises me not only because some of the scenes are true to life events, but simply because this piece of art touches my heart. The characters are too realistic. Jill Edwards the whole time I'm reading this I can feel all her emotions, loneliness, heartache and happiness. She's one of the strongest characters I've re

I wasn't sure how I felt about the romance happening in the first half of the book, but it was so intriguing that I couldn't put it down, and I'm glad I didn't because the surprises/twists that came were just what I needed to make me understand why this was happening and why I even wanted it to happen. Taylor W. Law does a great job of hooking you into the main character and the setting of this novel. It's a story that anyone who is stuck in a small town can appreciate.

Debut book for this author and it was well executed.
The main character, especially if your my age, is relatable. Empty nest with a man you no longer are connected to is not fun.
Well written and original.
My only complaint is the believably of what happened. A hot, young guy and a middle aged woman?.....
Still, a solid 4 star because I read the entire book without skimming and that's a Herculean task in my book world.
I will keep this author in my sights and recommend this book.

Taylor W. Law works in the television world in New York City. Storytelling has always been a core part of his job, but the notion of writing a book had never really crossed his mind.

His interest in writing was sparked after casually sharing a story with his co-workers in the office cafeteria. He was encouraged to write it down, and since then, hasn’t stopped writing.
