Overview

Alice Grantham lost her fiancé and her job, so she's had to come home to Willow Park to live with her parents. To recover some sense of independence and security, she's cobbled together different part-time jobs, including one as assistant to the pastor of her hometown church. Nothing seems to be going right for her. Even Micah, the pastor's brother and the first boy she ever loved, is standoffish with her now.

Micah has always been a prodigal son, but now he's trying to put that lifestyle behind him. Then a five-month-old daughter he never knew existed is dropped on his doorstep, the result of one of his many one-night stands. He needs help from Alice to care for his daughter, but he can't let himself hope for anything more from her than that. He can't help but want it, though...

    This sweet romance is the story of Micah and Alice. When Micah

    This sweet romance is the story of Micah and Alice. When Micah is left with his 5 month old daughter, a baby he never knew about until the untimely death of her mother, it's a blessing in disguise for Alice, who can move out of her parent's house to help care for the baby. Bonding over the child, there is a rekindling of feelings from their teenage friendship - but can they be brave enough to take this chance on new love?

    I quite enjoyed this story. The themes of forgiveness, redemption and love are strong and well portrayed. Micah is coming to grips with being a father, at the same time feeling distinctly unworthy for such a blessing when he spent many years away from the church and living a lifestyle that wasn't really what he wanted. These feelings of inadequacy affect his relationship with Alice as he truly believes he doesn't deserve her. Alice on the other hand is a sweet and caring woman, who has carried a tendre for Micah for many years but doesn't ever expect it to be reciprocated. However as they become used to each other again, spending time together and helping each other, those feelings are back in the forefront. The development of their romance is sweet and tender as they both come to grips with their feelings for each other. It ties in nicely with the theme of Easter, of rebirth and renewal.

    Overall it was a lovely story, with realistic characters and a satisfying happy ending. 4 stars.

    Strength in Christianity and love. It there in its undertones but it does not beat you over the head with it.




    Micah is the prodigal son returned home to be a Deacon in his brother's church. With that said, he is none to happy to see the girl,Alice, he let go of in the church offering assistance. Alice is back because life has been life for her and she needs a place to start again and regroup herself. 




    Micah finds that he will need Alice's help to get him through some of what life has to offer when you live the life he has for years. With this comes the respect for one another and then follows love.




    Adams is showing her growth as an author and what she has to offer the reading community. She has many sides and this is just yet another one of those side to her talent. 




    Thanks, NetGalley.

    This is a story of forgiveness and faith. Forgiving yourself an

    This is a story of forgiveness and faith. Forgiving yourself and asking forgiveness from the Higher Power you believe in. Faith in yourself and in the fact that if you forgive yourself and the Higher Power you believe in has also forgiven you, then you should trust that those who love you can forgive you.

    Micah has lived a wild life since he went off to college. The burden of his past now that he has mended his ways, comes back to remind him he is human. His journey to forgiving himself is told in this book as it affects his desire to re-establish his relationship with Alice.

    Alice has her burdens too. She needs to believe in herself after two failed relationships and losing Micah when he went off to college.

    These characters are very real as well as devout. Their faith is a driving force in their lives. Through their journey, a beautiful and deep love blossoms between them.

    This book is a good book. It is meant for readers who are devout. Except for the ending, I would rate this book as PG-13. My only concern is the pace of the story, which at times cold have picked up a bit. All in all, it is a book worth picking up for those who enjoy reading about small towns and lovers who find themselves after losing their way.

    great series

    I am reading the whole Willow Park series. Each book stands on it's own but can't wait to read the next story. Noelle is engaging in her thoughts and characters.

    I received this book, for honest review.  This book is about Micah, & Alice.  The struggles they both have, with their lives, and beliefs.  This book is tamed.  If your looking for erotic, or hot sex.  This book isn't for you.  This is more a christian book.
