I've been in a reading frenzy lately. And you know how much I love a Karen Kingsbury book. There is two in this series. My dad gave me these books to read and as always they delivered. Shane is ready to get married but does his heart really still belong to a long ago lost love? Lauren doesn't believe in happy endings after the blows that life has dealt her. Emily was raised by her grandparents and won't give up her search to find the mother she never knew. Three lives that were torn apart are about to find meaning again. But can they find ever after? Oh what a good book this was. Lives torn apart by good intentions and tragic mistakes. Things that make up who we all are. "It was just one year blended into the next, and pretty soon the road home was so overgrown with blame and hurt she couldn't find her way back." The hurt becomes to big, the blame so large we forget that love was there once too. "God made it clear to me a long time ago that we can't go back. We can only be glad for today." We can't go back and change things that happened but we can move forward and be thankful for the road we are now on and for the gifts today, that God has provided.
