Rating: You Need To Read
A year after he lost his beloved wife, Peter Samuels still struggles with overwhelming grief. As the sole caretaker of growing children, the first anniversary of her death hits especially hard as he faces the world without a partner.
There is only one man for Kimberly Wolfe. Her boss, Peter. But he’s taken. First, by a marriage she envied from afar. Now by his grief. However, she’s used to the idea that happily-ever-after may never happen, not with a childhood haunted by a domineering father who used the Bible to justify his God-given place as the head of their household. A father who still refuses to repent for the wrong he’s done. Kim has tried, but forgiveness comes hard when trust is in short supply.
An innocent kiss on New Year’s leads to a growing awareness—of each other, and of the gaping holes in their lives that only love can fill. But before they can take the first steps on the road to healing, first they have to build a bridge…
The third book in this series brings the author's intent into focus. I understood the reluctance of Peter and Kimberly to surrender to the love they felt for one another because of his wife's death a year ago. The circumstances and different situations concocted by Ms. Wiesner were nothing short of brilliant. I particularly appreciated the alternate plot that was sprinkled throughout involving Peter's sister, Samantha. Her dilemma was handled with finesse and tact that is rare in any genre let alone inspirational romance. The reader will definitely be compelled to turn page after page to find out if the characters indeed turn their lives and loves over to one another and whether the minor characters in the book straighten out their lives as well. The third installment of the Family Heirloom Series was well worth reading.
