When old friends of her parents come for a visit with their son, Stefan, Molly is attracted to the young man, but all he is interested in is talking about his position in the army.

First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, LOVE NEVER FAILS might be the third book in The Homeward Journey series, but it easily stands alone. I didn't read Love Stays True or Love Finds Faith but I didn't feel I missed anything in the reading of LOVE NEVER FAILS. Molly and Stefan seem mismatched. Stefan is in the Army and protecting the country and if necessary sacrificing his life is what he is trained to do. Molly might live in Texas with cowboys, but she is as gentile as her plantation-living friend and discussing Stefan's occupation makes her extremely uncomfortable. Stefan is very accommodating, letting Molly chat about her interests without a single complaint. A very sweet hero. The story is slow moving, but it's well-written and a nice way to unwind after a hectic day when you want something slow and calming. If you like historical romances and have read other books by Martha Rogers, you will love LOVE NEVER FAILS. And if you like to read series straight though (I know there are "finish the series" challenges going on right now) the books are in order, Love Stays True, Love Finds Faith, and LOVE NEVER FAILS.
I settled in to read this historical romance with a happy heart. After all, it’s set in the South right after the Civil War. It’s that world of dangerous conflict and sacrificial love that has always gripped me. And this beautiful book contains all those intriguing elements to draw readers in. I did, however, struggle with a few things in the story. I have not read the first two books in The Homeward Journey series yet and I had a hard time keeping all the different characters and their families straight. It’s not exactly what I would consider a stand-alone novel. With that being said, though, I still grew to appreciate the individuals and the glimpses into their past. I found myself wishing I’d known them better. I’ll have to hunt down the first two books now. ;) At first I wasn’t entirely convinced with how fast Molly and Stefan fell in love and I wasn’t sure about the issues that kept them apart, but maybe I missed something from the previous books. I did appreciate the lessons they both had to learn and how God grew them in maturity and faith. All the characters were likable and some surprising twists kept the pages turning. I loved the series concept of strong Southern women living out their faith in trying circumstances. That’s a theme and perspective I’ll always enjoy reading. I think many readers will enjoy this book. I would just recommend starting from the beginning of the series first. That way Molly and Stefan are old family friends by the time you turn the first page of Love Never Fails. ;)
I have read every book Martha has written in the inspirational historical fiction genre & I must say, this series was super. this third book does not disappoint, it is a story with love, family, dreams, conflicts that cover 3 states & how love can help make the distant no longer matter.
