by Becky Wade
I love books that deal with real, dark and deep issues. In A Love Like Ours, Becky deals with the tough issues of PTSD, single parenthood and a terminally ill family member. She doesn’t pull any punches, but really puts them out there. There are real relationships with God and that is another thing that is often times glazed over.
Jake Porter has come home from serving in Iraq where he was injured and saw the death of those he was close to. Lyndie, his childhood best friend, has come to work for him exercising his thoroughbred race horses. While there, she senses that God is calling her to a deeper issue than horses. She knows that God wants to use her to help Jake heal.
Absolutely loved it. The writing was wonderful, the characters were loveable, and the story held my attention. The only thing that I did not like was the idea of a girl saving someone that doesn’t believe in God. I don’t think it’s ever a good idea to be in a relationship, or physical with someone that is not on the same page. Especially when it’s the idea of changing or healing him. As a novel, it was fantastic. As a true to life, I would say almost never. Still, the book was really great! Becky is a truly gifted writer!! 5 Stars!
Thank you, Litfuse, for giving me this awesome book! As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!
