Book Review: The Hearts We Mend

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book:

Planning and Post-It notes are the epitome of Evie's life. But when she meets Jack, her life gets more than a little complicated.

Thirteen years ago, Evie's firefighter husband was killed in the line of duty, leaving her to raise their young son, Cody, alone. Now, Cody is marrying the love of his life, and as he packs up his belongings, the house feels as empty as Evie's heart. But for all her planning and mad organizational skills, Evie could never have anticipated the dramatic shift her life is about to make.

Tattooed, rough-around-the-edges Jack raises quite a few eyebrows in the tight-knit community of Banister Falls. Where Evie's life is stream-lined, Jack's approach to living is moment-by-moment. But as Evie gets drawn into Jack's world---a world that isn't as safe or predictable as the one she's worked so hard to create---he challenges her to open her eyes to the problems outside the walls of the church.

Jack doesn't make Evie feel comfortable, but he definitely makes her feel something. Something she hasn't felt since Max passed away---or, maybe ever. Because even though Jack isn't anything like her late husband, he just might be everything she needs.

About the author:

Kathryn Springer is a USA Today bestselling author. She grew up in northern Wisconsin, where her parents published a weekly newspaper. As a child she spent many hours sitting at her mother's typewriter, plunking out stories, and credits her parents for instilling in her a love of books --- which eventually turned into a desire to tell stories of her own. Kathryn has written nineteen books with close to two million copies sold. She lives with her husband and three children in Marinette, Wisconsin.

My Opinion

I loved reading this second book in the Banister Falls series. The first book, The Dandelion Field, was so good and The Hearts We Mend was just as good! I loved reading more about the characters from the first book and finding out what and how they are doing!

Plus, we got to look deeper into Evie who was introduced in The Dandelion Field. I loved watching her relationship with Jack develop and evolve. Their story lines and history is so heartbreaking at times but through all their life trials they held onto their faith and trust in God. Their faith is admirable and really reminded me of how important trusting God is in all situations!

Kathryn Springer writes with humor, love, passion, and trial and I enjoyed the journey of getting to know Evie and Jack and their families every step of the way! I can't wait for the next Ballister Falls novel!!!!
