A great read
Despite the mistakes he's made, the Herrera family always believed in Joel Hunter and supported him. They showed God's love in how they lived and in everything they did for him -- and he let them down. He's back to make amends, especially to Mari the girl he's always secretly loved. Joel's a changed man now, and he wants to work on the farm and help support the family. But will Mari let him? Her family embraces him with open arms, but Mari can't figure out why he's back and feels in her heart he'll just leave again.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

How can he convince her to understand or want him around when he can't share his biggest secret with her? He wants Herrera Farms to be home and he wants to be home for good. But will Mari destroy his dream of staying when she finds out where he's been the last nine years? Will Mari be able to forgive the past in order to see God' plan for her future?
This is a beautiful story of how God works through people to share His mercy, grace, and forgiveness. This story was very entertaining, but filled with examples and lessons of how God's love and Christ's sacrifice on the cross can redeem us and change our lives. Through the lives of the Herrera family, Leigh shows how we never know how things we do or say can affect others. Things aren't always as they appear to be, but God always has a plan for us. This is a wonderful read. I highly recommend this book. You will not be disappointed, but blessed as you read about Joel Hunter and Mari Herrera, their family, and their journey on the road to forgiveness.
