I'm a guy, so I don't read many romance novels, unless they are suspense... but I picked up a few of the Love Inspired non-suspense novels recently at a used store, and have loved what I read. Every time I think I have read the best one, I read another that competes for being the best... and this one is the most recent. This will sound totally non-masculine, but this book ripped my heart out of my chest, squeezed it to death, and put it back in. Yeah, it is fiction, but man what a story. This is ...more

Heartwarming

So lovely. I enjoyed this book partially because I'm from a large Italian family and am close friends with large Hispanic families. There's nothing like the joy of a close-knit group if people who love you through good days and bad. This take made me smile a lot.
