Robin Jones Gunn
Book Summary: The charming town of Glenbrooke, Oregon, welcomes readers once more to delight in a contemporary love story. In this all-new offering in the heartwarming Glenbrooke series, bestselling author Robin Jones Gunn's characters get two lessons on love: it's not based on performance and its motives must be pure. When Leah Hudson, the "ugly duckling" among beautiful sisters, meets mysterious newcomer Seth Edwards, she thinks someone could love her after all. Their friendship grows, but Seth has things he must work through before he can open himself to anyone. An unexpected inheritance serves to complicate matters that strike to the core of Seth's and Leah's hearts and faith.
Leah Hudson loves to give. But when others want to give back? Well, that's another story entirely!
After years of pouring herself out for others, Leah, an average twenty-seven-year-old woman, finally finds herself receiving. She has her own cottage in Glenbrooke, wonderful friends, a great job at the hospital, and the attention of Seth Edwards, the new guy in town. She even wins a cruise to Alaska when she accidentally dials the number of a radio station! So why can't Leah relax and enjoy this new season of her life? When an inheritance of fifty acres of prime Oregon woodlands is left to her-with a certain condition attached-Glenbrooke's town lawyer, Collin Radcliffe, prompts Leah to question Seth's motives for his interest in her. Only by turning her affections in a new direction will Leah be able to hear the true song of this springtime of her life.
Review: This was a great standalone book and to the series. I learned so much from the entire series! This book was one of my favorites in the series. I looked forward to the reprint of these books. They were so sweet and enjoyable. It was easy to like Leah she was the kind of person anyone would want as a friend. The Biblical woman Leah and this character were similar and it was such a memorable pairing that this is one of the things that resonated with me most. I liked the romance and all of the windfalls Leah had but for me the Biblical reference was the greatest.

This is such a great book. It is one of my favorites among the Glenbrooke Series books. I loved Leah's charater in that she didn't think of herself as the prettiest girl but her personality outshone her outside. I also liked that even though Leah felt behind in that she wasn't married or had kids like alot of her friends. God kept her strong and she continued to help others. God rewarded her with a great guy. The best part of the book was the suspense. Whether Seth only pretended to love her for her money or if he was being genuine. In the end his pursuit and love for her convinced me.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Ms. Gunn has done it again! Not only are all of her books life lessons, they are inspiring, intriguing, and downright entertaining! 'Woodlands' certainly maintains that record! For anyone who has given years of themselves to the aid of a loved one or anything else for that matter, 'Woodlands' reminds us of God's promise that 'He WILL repay you for the years...' and it is worth the wait. Again, experience with the characters how God's love and grace shown through others gives new meaning to the word 'ROMANCE'!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is the 7th book to the Glenbrook series. The others are fabulous and this one is about a woman who has lived her whole life there. She loves everyone, loves giving and also is the 'Glenbrook Zorro' though no one knows it is she. While watching all her friends get married and have kids, she is left waiting and wanting a family of her own. Then she meets this great guy but he might turn out to be a fraud.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
