ABOUT THE BOOK (413 pages): Mortified after her semester abroad is cut short, Amelia Christiansen returns to Deep Haven, certain she isn’t brave enough for the adventures she’s dreamed of. The last thing she expects is for the man who broke her heart to cross the Atlantic and beg forgiveness.Heir to a European hotel dynasty, Roark St. John has trekked from one exotic locale to another, haunted by tragedy and the expectations that accompany his last name. Amelia is the first woman to give him a reason to stop running. He’ll do anything for a second chance―even contend with Amelia’s old flame, who is intent on sending Roark packing.
While one surprise after another leaves Amelia reeling, Roark’s continued presence only highlights the questions pursuing her. Like him, is she running from the life God has called her to? Could finding her new place mean leaving home behind?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Growing up in Minneapolis and attending the U of MN, I learned to love city life, although I'm a woodsy girl at heart. Or maybe I'm an adventurer -- having lived and traveled all over the world, including Siberia Russia as a missionary for eight years. Probably that's why my characters can't sit still, and seem to get into one scrape after another -- they're too much like me! I love God, my family, my country, my church, and feel privileged every day to be able to write stories, that I hope inspire and entertain!
My Review: I have ry enjoyed reading this series. This book has to be one of my favorites. The way that Roark travelled so far to win her back was so romantic. I also thought that this is such a close family that it was interesting to see if Amelia would be able to leave her "home" behind. I enjoy reading about how the other characterized doing, and how things in Deep Haven are going. It is like catching up with old friends. Roark also had issues that heneededtofigure out. Will they be able to settle their past in hopes for a better future? I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
