There are some great laugh out loud moments with the character Lori, she is full of life, although very insecure as she has big red hair and is over weight and has eating issues. Those have come from her Father being critical of her very much every day after her mother dies. She doesn’t feel she is worthy of love, but when she meets the new youth minister, she is so attracted to him. He has come to Kansas to serve as the youth minister after losing his fiancée’ suddenly in a car accident. He’s taken the job to get a fresh start, but he can’t seem to get his confidence in God back and is really struggling in embracing his new life. This book had me drawn in from the beginning, I learned a bit while reading it. I love books by this author and Kim Vogel Sawyer didn’t disappoint me with this book.
I received this book in the kindle format from NetGalley.com. My words and opinion of this book are my own freely given. #FromThisMoment #NetGalley #KimVogelSawyer
