Georgia Williams had traveled a hard road from being a sheltered preacher's daughter to becoming a struggling single mother. Determined to build a more secure future for her baby girl, she takes a job as a night nurse at Jericho Military Hospital. But her precarious world shifts yet again when she meets her newest patient.

A marine who nearly died fighting for his country, Lieutenant Christian Howard is a man of duty, honor, and deep desires. Something about the scarred war hero touches Georgia, awakening feelings she's tried to keep hidden. One passionate night together changes everything, erupting with consequences neither of them could have foreseen. Now Georgia faces the most momentous decision of her life. Should she trust Christian - a man she barely knows - with devastating secrets from her past? Could this be a love that will heal and save them both?

Tears. What a novel!

This book was better than the first book, in my opinion. Maybe because the dynamic between the heroine and her father is so similar to mine. What happened between them in the end brought me to tears.

I also enjoyed so much the relationship between the main characters. It was refreshing not to have so much turmoil between two people you want together. I hope I haven't said too much there.

I love the narrator's voice; the only thing that is a drawback is that she doesn't differentiate voices enough and you have to use context to figure out who is talking at the moment. But her voice is soothing and matches the tone of the book very well.

Overall, this book was an awesome "read!"

Deep...

Wow! Where to start? I first listened to Hope Blooms by this author and it just didn't really move me. Well that was not the same for this book!! This story moved me on too many levels. it was deep to say the least. There was love lost, love gained, forgiveness, stupidity, PTSD, Rape, this list goes on. This was a spectacular listen, one that I definitely plan to listen to again. I hate that the book had to end.

More than just forgiveness.

This was a good story. Her resilience and her focus on her daughter helped her immensely. The connection and eventual love for Christian was just what she needed.

The narrator is the only one thing that I would change. She doesn't always convey the emotions needed when telling a story.

Very nice story.

The main female character is a little mushy and dim witted in a few scenes. The story took a few turns I did not expect which is a big plus for me. The narrator could have speeded things up; the slow pace drove me a bit crazy, otherwise she did a nice job.

good but drawn out.

The story was good but drawn out. I kept skipping chapters only to have to go back because I missed a good part in all the extra. The story really was good. It was just very slow moving.

Greattttt

I really liked this book and would recommend this book. I wish the narrator had been better with each character voice. That would have been great. Because the Marines and older people voices would have been great if the narrator had changed her voice. I was glad Georgia didn't give in to Robert 's threats. It had a great storyline and sexual storylines. I wish this book was a movie or TV show. I hate it's over. I will look for more books by this author. Good job!
