This was a wonderful story of overcoming life’s obstacles with a sweet country flare. At age ten Jessie survived an auto accident that killed her mother. After learning she was paralyzed and would live in a wheelchair the rest of her life, Jessie wished she would have died too. With her mother gone and abandoned by her father, Jessie felt like she was unloved and alone. But her mother’s parents took care of her and loved her like a daughter.
Jessie felt like her life was turning around after she got a marriage proposal from Matt, her longtime beau. But soon doubts of his true love started creeping in Jessie’s heart. How could he possibly love a woman that wasn’t whole? Then as wedding plans progressed, money issues kept coming up and Jessie and Matt’s ideas seemed to get thrown under the bus.
How will they be able to salvage hope out of these dire circumstances?
I quickly fell in love with these characters. Homer in his overalls, a farmer, trying to make ends meet. Martha, working to keep her household together and her granddaughter’s spirits up. And all those in the community that loved Jessie and Matt and tried to help in any way they could. And Matt, what a standup guy who truly loved Jessie and tried to reassure her that he always would. And being from Alabama, mentioning the Crimson Tide a couple of times didn’t hurt either!
This was a new author to me but I will keep her on my reading radar.
I received this ebook in a contest I won but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise.
