Second, to plan her own wedding to Aaron Zook -- a marriage she’s been dreaming about ever since childhood. And yet, although she had missed the idyllic farms and families of her upbringing, Marianna is surprised that Indiana is somehow making her long now for Montana.

As months pass, secrets that were hidden in winter’s frozen grasp thaw and take on a life of their own. The truths about a child, about a past relationship, and about God’s plans are being revealed. Walking through a valley of questions, Marianna must hold on to hope as she decides where and with whom her heart truly belongs.
 
 



My Review:   
Cover: Amazing 
Plot: number three in the series but can stand on its own. 
Characters: Very believable and loveable for the most. A few you would really like to tell them to grow up and quite being busy bodies to others. 
Author: I absolutely Love author Tricia Goyer. Her style of telling a story as if she is living right now. I was totally involved in the book.

I know this is the third in the series and that I had not read the first two. But as I said above, this could stand on its own. Author Tricia Goyer gives you some back ground from Marianna's and the others through out the book. So you can realized why and how things happen. 

And even though I have not read the first two I will go back and read. I was asked to read and review this one and I am so glad I did. 

A Must Read Series!!! Pick it up today and let me know if you have read the first two and what you think about the author. 
So due to the above, if I could it would be higher, I am giving this book a Breath of Life ratings of: 


Five Clock Rating!!!  

Disclosure: I did received the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and review. Opinions are my own and yours may differ.
