This was such a heartwarming, touching story. Katherine and Ryan both have had tragedy touch their lives. I enjoyed how the author brought them together and how faith helped them each in different ways. It took Ryan awhile to come to believe which made the story more realistic. I look forward to the next book in the series.
I found the narrator fine for the female voices however the male voices were a bit difficult to get accustomed to.
