Book Review: Love Without End by Robin Lee Hatcher
Chet and Kimberly have both failed when it comes to love. Will they risk their hearts to love again?
Chet Leonard's life was forever changed when his 17-year-old son died and then, soon after, his wife walked out on their family. Over two years later, all he wants to do is hold onto his horse ranch and raise his remaining sons to be honorable men.
Kimberly Welch, widowed mother of Tara, a rebellious 15-year-old, has reached the end of her finances and nearly the end of her rope. She and Tara come to King's Meadow to try to piece their lives back together again. Kimberly has no intention of becoming involved with the residents of this remote mountain community and certainly not with any man.
When octogenarian Anna McKenna returns to King's Meadow and to the Leonard ranch, she becomes an agent of change and healing for the two hurting families. With her help, Kimberly and Chet may discover that true love has no end.
My Thoughts: I always enjoy Hatcher's book and this one was no exception. I have not read any other books in this series and found that this definitely worked as a standalone book.
I particularly enjoyed how the main male character's story was highlighted perhaps even more than the female's - which is uncommon in fiction.
I liked that the storyline and characters were all realistic and believable. And I enjoyed getting glimpses into Nana Anna's story as well. It was neat seeing both the young and the old Anna. Sometimes, when we're relating to the elderly, we forget that they were (obviously) young once too, and that we can learn so much from them and their stories.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for organizing this tour and providing me with my complimentary review copy.
