Forgiveness. The heart of the story in Robin Lee Hatcher's fantastic new novel -- Who I Am with You.
Robin Lee Hatcher gives us Jessica Mason and Ridley Chesterfield as very real characters who readers come to know and care about from the very beginning of the story. Watching them deal with deep hurts and their rekindling of faith and love provides a sweet story that you will not want to put down until the very end. And the connection with Jessica's great-grandfather's own journey of love and forgiveness adds a fascinating extra dimension to the contemporary love story.
Fans of great inspirational romance should enjoy this delightful story of second chances.
Thanks to the author and Audra Jennings PR for providing a copy of Who I Am with You. I am delighted to share my own thoughts in this review.
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 wronged them, 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.
