most amazing thing about this novel was the way in which the author brought out the raw emotions while using a gentleness that nearly seems contrary to the abrasive, unjust actions of certain

Chesterfield moves into the house next door Ridley, too, had has his life shaken when his reputation was tarnished across national media Ridley and Jessica find common ground and they start to develop a sweet friendship that helps them each rebuild faith in themselves, God and the people around them But as their feelings grow, neither is sure if the timing is right for something than friendship I really enjoyed this first book in a new series by Robin Lee Hatcher What the synopsis doesn t allude to is the dual stories included within this book At the start of Jessica s story she receives a bible handed down from her great grandfather to her grandmother to her Interspersed with Jessica s story are sections from Jessica s great grandfather, Andrew Henning, as he faced the challenges of the Great Depression, starting a family, loss, and family breakdown and how he kept his faith through all trials While Jessica doesn t learn of these stories, his bible gives her the same strength and support to rebuild her faith and continue on through everything she has to face I loved Jessica and Ridley s relationship What starts as a simple acquaintance slowly grows into a beautiful friendship, and, through shared understanding, patience and a little attraction, something The peaceful setting and charming small town of Hope Springs is the perfect backdrop for their story of renewal.I am eagerly awaiting the second book in The Legacy of Faith series, I Cross My Heart, which continues the Henning family story as they face the looming Second World War and a new contemporary story as Jessica s cousin takes the lead role in what is sure to be another charming and beautifully crafted story of love and faith.The publishers provided an advanced readers copy of this book for reviewing

challenges are much easier to bear when faced with God.I enjoyed Robin Lee Hatcher s latest book, Who I Am With You Her stories flow so well and the writing is so smooth in transition that it was easy to go back and forth between the two stories I enjoyed both stories I espeically pulled for Andrew and Helen to make it through their difficulties Sadly, we live in a world where people don t always make good choices, and that has gone on through the generations, and this book addresses some of those It is also easy to see where poor communication causes problems in relationships I think Hatcher handles it all well At the end of the book, there are discussion questions for the reader or a book club This is the first book in a new Legacy of Faith series so the book includes the first chapter

different from the ones faced throughout time.This character driven book deals with deep emotions and spiritual truths which will touch your heart I had a very hard time putting this story down, and

storylines with those of Jessica s great great grandfather Andrew and his life during the Great Depression make for a richer and meaningful evaluation of those trials This b What a beautiful, heartfelt book I always enjoy Hatcher s books, because she has a way of creating characters that are both realistic and relatable, but also can teach subtle lessons about life and overcoming obstacles Jessica and Riley have trials in their backgrounds and their present lives, and the melding of these storylines with those of Jessica s great great grandfather Andrew and his life during the Great Depression make for a richer and meaningful evaluation of those trials This book is only the first in the Legacy of Faith series, and it s obvious that others in subsequent installments will continue to benefit from Andrew s Bible passed through the family The journey of life, reflected through the past, has so much to teach us today about perseverance, trust, and faith I also appreciated the supporting characters and their humor that balances serious moments, and who doesn t appreciate a headstrong dog I look forward to the next book in the series to find out about Andrew and his family

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.My thoughts Somehow I missed that this was a cross generations story I probably would ve passed on it as I m not a fan However, Jessica is in mourning Her husband and six year old daughter died in a car accident after a big fight wen her husband announced that he was leaving her She was pregnant with her second child and life skidded to a halt She stayed home, lived in her pajamas, and didn t brush her hair What was the point of even trying Ridley, on the other hand, is hiding His face is plastered on the news, he s made a fool of himself, and he is hanging his head in shame, hiding at his parents vacation home.Andrew and Helen are newlyweds when the stock market crashes, he losses his job and home and is forced to move in with his in laws On a farm, no less Full of shame and regret he struggles to keep going But he learns a valuable lesson Will he be able to share the lesson years later with a

start a new life through the wisdom of her grandparents via the family bible I found both Jessica and her neighbor, Ridley, relatable Often, authors will amp up character flaws to unrealistic proportions or give adults middle school mentalities Ms Hatcher refrains from these tactics Instead, the characters are everyday people who have been given the shaft by other people in their lives They are struggling with their identities and how the events outside of their control reshape and design the lives they planned The author does a great job of incorporating Christian ideals, verses, and faith into the story without being obtuse and in your face with evangelicalism The novel weaves the lives of two couples and how faith in God carried them through hard times, whilst creating a modest and heart warming love story This is a book that I will share with my friends and family as a comforting romance filled with faith, courage, and love flag 2 likesLike see review Nov 25, 2018
