A redemptive story from multi-platinum recording artist Sara Evans.
Jade Fitzgerald left the pain of her past in the dust when she headed out for college a decade ago. Now she's thriving in her career and glowing in the light of Max Benson's love.
But then Jade's hippie mother, Beryl Hill, arrives in Whisper Hollow, Tennessee, for Jade's wedding along with Willow, her wild younger sister. Their arrival forces Jade to throw open the dark closets of her past--the insecurity of living with a restless, wandering mother, the silence of her absent father, and the heart-ripping pain of first-love's rejection.
Turns out Beryl has a secret of her own. She needs reconciliation with her oldest daughter before illness takes her life. In the final days leading to the wedding, Jade meets the One who shows her that the past has no hold on her future. With a little grace, they'll meet in the middle, maybe even before that sweet by and by.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Sara Evans is a vibrant, talented woman with a distinctive voice and an innate ability to relate to her audience. She's a songwriter, a mother of three, and a master at multi-tasking, but above all, she's real. It's that honesty and integrity that resonate throughout her music.
What a beautiful story of love, redemption and second chances. If every man on earth was like Max, we'd all be as lucky as myself and Jade!
Jade is a wounded girl, her dad left her when she was only eight, her mom chose the newest boyfriend over her kids and Jade took on the role of 'Mom' to her younger sister at such a young age. What child wouldn't be hurt and upset with Mom. To top it all off, Jade experienced a broken heart as a teenager from the boy she gave her heart, body and vows to.
Fast forward to adulthood and a new promising relationship with a man who sees past the hurt in Jade to the women she wants to be. Max is not only a stud, but a gentleman and a church-raised boy. Jade's journey while wedding plans are in the making, takes her down past roads she never wanted to travel down again, but a new exciting relationship without someone she barely new from her past opens new doors for Jade to step through.
Many relationships were damaged in the past, how many will be restored?
According to a video posted on Sara's webpage, this is book one of four! I'm hooked on Jade and can't wait to see where her new relationship will take her and how many past broken relationships can be restored.
This is a beautifully written story. The characters come to life, the situations are as if you were there and the feelings become your own. Great read! I'd recommend this book to anyone who loves a good Christian romance!
