I fell in love with Robin Lee Hatcher’s books a number of years ago when I first encountered her Sisters of Bethlehem Springs series. The whimsical and romantic western series was delightful and I have made it a point to read as many of this author’s books as possible since that time. One thing I have learned about this author is that although her books may vary from historical to contemporary romance and women’s fiction, I can always count on a satisfying experience when reading one. Who I Am With You offers the best of both worlds in a split time novel that features Jessica Mason’s current story side-by-side with her great-grandfather’s story from the early 1900s.
The tale of two wounded people attempting to just survive their pain with no intention of becoming involved with the opposite sex, Who I Am With You is a story that offers hope to its readers. well-developed characters with more strength than they imagine are brought together unexpectedly and form a bond that helps to heal them both. I loved how Jessica was encouraged in her faith by the notes in her grandfather’s Bible. It was also encouraging to read about his own marital struggles and his determination to keep his marriage together.
All-in-all, Who I Am With You is a story that will not only warm the reader’s heart but will give her plenty to think about in the following days. I am certain that this book may just be what someone might need to hear and the exact time she reads it – at least I do hope that will be the case.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by Audra Jennings PR. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
For these two broken hearts, the first step toward love will be a huge leap of faith.
Jessica Mason isn’t looking for love when she meets Ridley Chesterfield. Instead she is still reeling from the tragic, unexpected loss of her husband and daughter—and awaiting the arrival of her unborn child. Harboring the secret of her husband’s betrayal, her pain is deeper than anyone knows.
Ridley Chesterfield is hiding out in Hope Springs, Idaho, avoiding a political scandal and the barrage of false media headlines that have tarnished his good name. The last thing Ridley wants is a relationship—but when fate leads Ridley to form a friendship with his reclusive and pregnant neighbor, he wonders if this small-town hideout might be more of a long-term destination.
When Jessica begins to read her great-grandfather’s Bible, she finds a connection with a man she never knew. Somehow the verses he marked and the words he wrote in the margins open her heart to healing. And as Ridley and Jessica help each other forgive the people who have broken their hearts, they must decide if the past will define them or if they will choose to love again.
Who I Am with You weaves together a modern-day romance with Jessica’s great-grandfather’s story from the 1930s, reminding us that some truths can cross generations and that faith has the power to transform families forever.
Who I Am with You is the first book in Robin’s new “A Legacy of Faith” series.
