Blythe is brought face to face with the fall-out of decisions and vows made in her youth. When the young man she¿d loved was killed, she was persuaded it was best to give up their baby for adoption. Okay, so now she¿s mature, faith has sustained her over many years of heartache, she has a successful antique business, but her heart still yearns for the daughter now seeking a relationship with her biological mother. The decisions Blythe has to make now will again have far reaching effects on several people. Is she prepared to lose her business, the man she is learning to love or continue to be estranged from the daughter she has always loved? The struggles of mother and daughter and the men who love them reached deep into my own heart. The way Andrea Boeshaar shows the truth and relevance of Scripture for today¿s problems warms and delights. Her excellent portrayal of real people in real struggles to find and obey God¿s ways must be a challenge to any reader searching for answers to life¿s questions of faith, love and forgiveness. This book is a keeper, one to read over and over and be blessed by it!

In the third book of the Faded Photograph series, Andrea Boeshaar brings the mysteries of the past to a satisfying conclusion. Broken hearts are mended and grudges are swallowed up in forgiveness as these wonderful characters find peace and joy. Ms. Boeshaar proves beyond a doubt that the fruits of the spirit are more than enough to solve any relationship problem.

Boeshaar outdid herself in Precious Things. The story deals with tough issues such as Forgiveness, a Hidden Past, Rekindling Friendships, and of course, Romance! The twist at the end really threw me. A terrific read that you won't be able to put down until you finish!

Ever found something thrown out in the trash that you knew was valuable? Andrea Boeshaar weaves a moving story around that theme in Precious Things, the 3rd book in her Faded Photograph series. Continuing with characters introduced in Broken Things and Hidden Things, Andrea keeps us guessing on who will end up with who in this contemporary love story. The characters are interesting, the story world is varied, spiritual issues are open and honest, and not everybody does as you expect! Good read.

Blythe Severson sits in her curiosity shop among her precious antiques and artifacts, carefully guarding her life and her heart. But when old friends and the child she gave up thirty-one years earlier intrude into this citadel, threatening her security and her very livelihood, Blythe begins to learn what really is precious to her. Can she open her heart to love, both to give and to receive? In Precious Things¸ Andrea Boeshaar completes the story of her Faded Photograph Series, once again telling an engaging story in a masterful style. Just when the reader thinks she¿s spotted a stereotype, the character does something quirky and real, just like someone you know. Descriptions of settings are pleasantly minimal, just enough to ¿put you there.¿ But the most important feature of this novel is the artistic interweaving of the characters¿ stories, which are fraught with true-to-life spiritual struggles, sorrows, and triumphs, which draw the reader along on the journey. As in the preceding Hidden Things, Boeshaar writes like a good friend telling you the story of her life. I highly recommend this excellent novel, Precious Things.
