BELOVED by Robin Lee Hatcher

Best-selling author Robin Lee Hatcher returns to the adventurous American West in the final book of her Where the Heart Lives series. This story is filled with Robin’s trademark heartwarming and emotionally charged message of faith, courage, and love.

When Diana Brennan’s husband returns eight years after abandoning her, can she find it in her heart to forgive him?

Diana Brennan came west on the orphan train and was given a home with a loving couple who cherished and spoiled her. At 17, she fell hard for Tyson Applegate, the son of a wealthy mine owner. After a whirlwind courtship and marriage, Tyson took off for adventures around the world, including fighting with the Rough Riders in Cuba. Receiving no word of him for eight years, Diana’s infatuation with her dashing husband died an ugly death, and she is ready to move past the old pain and marry again, just as soon as Tyson is declared legally dead.

But when her husband returns, supposedly a changed man, he wants to reunite with his wife and run for the senate. While Diana suspects the election is his real reason for wanting her by his side, she agrees to maintain his home and to campaign with him, but when it is over, win or lose, she wants her freedom. He agrees with one condition––she must give him a chance to change her mind about him.

My thoughts...

Diana Applegate was abandoned by her husband, Tyson, years ago and believes he is dead. She's ready to remarry and move on with her life when suddenly he shows up at her engagement dinner wanting to reunite and show her he is a changed man. He also wants to run for the Senate and needs her. She agrees to stay with him until the race is over and then wants her freedom.

This is a cute story with such likeable characters. Hatcher is talented and brings a wonderful story of love and forgiveness. This one is hard to put down. 5 stars from me!

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
