My Review

5 stars

Linda Goodnight delivers a compassionate look into the long-term heartache surrounding miscarriage. This is a truly second chance romance for the divorced Rachel and Jake, one that requires both characters to trust God and each other with their shared, painful history.


Goodnight masterfully thrusts Rachel and Jake together in many situations where they were able to rediscover the love that drew them together, while working through their pain. I love the way Goodnight portrayed the emotions, the push and pull, for each character. It felt very true to life and may help some readers experience healing from their own grief over miscarriage.


I strongly recommend this sweet, small town, Christian romance to all fans. If you have doubts about picking this up because miscarriage feels too personal, I encourage you to read this. Perhaps God is ready to surround you with His love and bring your heart some healing too.


Romance: Very clean. Light kissing.

Faith: Both characters relied on God and grew in their understanding of His love.
