Publisher's Summary

The heart wants what the heart wants....

Fresh out of college with a psychology degree, Molly Stillman was searching for the meaning of life by taking a summer volunteer gig building houses. The meaning in Molly’s life became apparent when her path crossed Lincoln Abbott’s. With his brand new Yale MBA in hand, Linc was Mississippi bound, ready to spend the summer rebuilding houses after a devastating hurricane. He had a plan, lots of them, actually. But after meeting Molly, he realized plans have a way of showing you who’s boss. 

One look from the intelligent beauty working by his side on the house project, and Linc knew everything had changed. His longtime goal of studying at Oxford before joining his family’s finance business was abandoned in favor of helping to grow Molly’s charming family business in Vermont. Too bad Linc’s father had other ideas about how his future should unfold, and when forced to make a choice, Linc chose Molly. He chose Vermont and the Green Mountain Country Store, and he never looked back. 

Until a phone call from the past forces him to confront the choices he made decades ago and the consequences of saying good-bye, including telling his 10 grown children why they’ve never met his family - a subject that’s always been off-limits until now. When Linc decides to go to Philadelphia to clear his conscience and see his father one last time, his wife and children insist on going along. Let them see what came of this choice you made, his eldest son, Hunter, says.

As they wander down memory lane, Linc and Molly revisit the unforgettable summer that changed both their lives and look back on 40 years of happily ever after.

Love, love, love it!

This book is my favorite of the series! A look back into Linc and Molly's beginnings. There is nothing better for me than finding the roots of this amazing family. Linc is called by his estranged sister about this ailing health of his father. Now, his side of the family is never mentioned, so now it's time for the reasons. When told, the 10 kids and their families rally around Linc. But what will come of this? Will there be a happy family reunion? Will there be more pain? Will it be the closure Linc needs? Visit with the Abbotts. We get a look at their past and their present as we spend Christmas with the family! Heartwarming story and one you will truly enjoy.

Stella Hunter is one of my favorite female narrators. She has a warmth in her voice that resonates through her characters and makes them very real to me. She is perfectly cast for this family, and I enjoyed her story telling.

Wonderful!!!

I love this book! I love how you brought every thing together and was able to tell the story with love compassion and excitement and a little sorrow thrown in. I have read most all your books if not all of them and this is really close to being my favorite one.

Outstanding, one of my top books of 2020

Reading a Green Mountain or Butler Vermont book is to me like going home to visit my family. I adore the Abbott family and absolutely loved Let It Be. It was everything I hoped for and so much more that I listened to this one in almost one sitting. I was absolutely riveted to the story and narration.

Linc and Molly’s story ha become my favourite book and to say that means so much as I have loved every one of the stories that Ms.Force has woven about this family. I have always wondered about how Linc and Molly met and the circumstances that had Linc moving to Butler, Vermont but I had no idea how complicated and heartbreaking the circumstances were until now.

Linc is comfortable with the decision he made almost forty years ago, but all it takes is one phone call and the past rushes back to smack him in the face. I loved how the story moved through time from past to present and the unconditional love that all the Abbott children and their significant others gave to Linc.

Marie Force did not disappoint in any way as this was an extremely well written sweet and romantic love story that touched me on so many levels. Let It Be is at times a heart wrenching story of determination, courage, strength and above all love, acceptance and family.

I cannot wait for the next book in the series, Come Together.

Finally Linc and Molly's story

Linc and Molly have quite the story that started forty years ago. None of their ten children knew why their father never spoke about his family but they will soon find out why. I love this big family and how the always have each other's backs. The family is growing with the children, their significant others and their children and the love just keeps increasing. Marie Force writes such wonderful books and I can't wait for the next one. Stella Hunter is a new narrator for this book and does a wonderful job narrating everyone.
