Publisher's Summary

She's sworn off marriage.

Twice widowed, Kate Archer believes she's better off alone. She's not sure she could survive the heartache of losing another husband. Instead of romance, she pours herself into a project close to her heart: establishing a foundation to meet the needs of military widows - just like the grief-stricken woman she was 20 years ago when her husband was killed by friendly fire.

He's still running from the past.

Nicolas Black has spent the past 20 years of his life - his entire Air Force career - trying to atone for the mistake that cost his best friend his life. Now he's a police detective in Garfield, Oklahoma, but the guilt remains. When he learns of Kate's new business endeavor, he wants to help. But being near the vibrant widow pushes all his buttons and makes him long for the things he's never allowed himself to have - the home and family his buddy never had a chance to enjoy.

As Kate and Nicolas spend time together, a relationship neither expected quickly blossoms. But both remain oblivious to the tragic intersection that hides in their past.

Wonderful book!

I can't say enough about Sharon Srock's books. Written from a Christian perspective, her books are about strong, independent women. Kate is no exception. Twice widowed, Kate isn't looking for love anymore. She wants to use her inheritance money to build a foundation to meet the needs of military widows. When Nicolas, a retired Air Force man, hears about this foundation, he wants to be a part of it. With a few little twists and turns, Kate and Nicolas find that they both hold a part of each other's past and future. Laura Jennings does a beautiful job narrating this book, giving each character their own voice.

Wouldn't this make a great movie?

I was given this audio book by the author, narrator, or publisher in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

A Story That grabs (and keeps) Your Attention

This story grabbed my attention right from the start. It was well written and the characters were fully developed. I felt like I was in the story and was watching it as it developed. I loved that it was a continuation of the Valley View series and I knew the characters. The narration was well modulated and pleasant to listen to as I worked. All in all, I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a good, clean story.

Kate, by Sharon Srock, narrated by Laura Jennings

Would you listen to Kate again? Why?

I probably would listen to this story again. First because it is very inspirational. Keep in mind that I wasn't raised with a church background, so this might sound silly, but the story made me realize that prayer is an ongoing process - 24/7 - not just before bed and on Sunday. Hearing Kate and the other characters praising God for the good things, and asking Him for help and guidance when troubled really had an impact on my heart and mind. The second reason is because it is a sweet, clean romance between older, more mature adults. Since I am older, it made the story more enjoyable.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked Kate. She was widowed, as I am, and I could sympathize with her feelings, especially about going into another relationship when she still had feelings for her prior husbands (she had been widowed twice).

What does Laura Jennings bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Other than samples, this is the first audiobook I've listened to. I enjoyed the narration by Laura Jennings because she was able to change her voice just enough for each character - man or woman - that after a few chapters I could often tell which character was speaking.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Love when you least expect it.

Any additional comments?

I will definitely read (or listen) to more books by Sharon Srock, especially if Laura Jennings is narrating.
