I thought this book was great! Raleigh (aka Riley) Morgan return
I thought this book was great! Raleigh (aka Riley) Morgan returns from war after 4 years to find his ranch in shambles, his parents dead, and his fiance married. With painful memories from before and during the war haunting him, he needs to find something to do to keep him busy. Annie Sheffield has lived at the Wilcox School for the Blind since coming to Waco seven years earlier, after her father's abandonment. It's the only home she's ever had. However, she has had to deceive everyone in order to stay there. When her and Riley meet, sparks fly. Can they overcome their pasts and accept the future God has for them?Was this review helpful?

The plot moved pretty quickly. There were no parts that I found lagging. Riley is coming to grips with what has happened over the past four years and learning to trust God again. Annie is fighting to keep the only home she's ever known and learning that the God she's heard about can forgive her for anything she's done. The author did a great job of keeping the story interesting and the romance between Annie and Riley intriguing.
The author also did a great job at weaving the message throughout the book. Doubt and fear must be overcome in order to experience true peace in any Christian's life. It's a lesson that many of us, including myself, still need to learn and experience daily. Overall, this was a really great book and I look foreward to reading the rest of the books in the series!
**I received this book free from Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.**

My daughter (12) and I are loving this series! Even though we are reading them all out of order so it is taking some figuring out, but I get them when and where I can.
This book stood strong right along with the others. It has a troubled hero running from God and a confused, beautiful, young woman who bowls him over and helps bring him back to God even though she was the one searching.
I gave this book only 4 stars because I found it too big of a stretch that a girl could fool a whole town AND the man she's falling in love with, into believing that she's blind for so many years. If she wore dark glasses...maybe. But she would look right at things, even his eyes once in a while and with a school full of blind kids he couldn't tell the difference?
Other than that...4 thumbs up!!
