Book Description

Nov. 26 2010
A God-fearing man. A God-seeking woman. For Sam Lewis and Lexa Clarke, it proves a combustible combination. Lexa Clarke signs up for a TeamWork Missions summer assignment expecting adventure in a far-off, exotic country. Instead, she's sent to sweltering San Antonio to help rebuild homes destroyed by sudden flooding. She survives the four-hour bus trip from Houston, dust in the lungs, a flat tire, a tool-throwing incident and a spitting goat - not to mention an inquisition from a distractingly handsome cowboy - all before reaching the work camp. TeamWork director Sam Lewis isn't sure what to think of his newest volunteer.  She's feisty, witty, and incredibly pretty, but looks more prepared to board a cruise ship than build houses. Burned by a past betrayal, he's got a job to do, a reputation to uphold. Sam can't afford to be distracted by a woman who attracts animals, defies his rules, finds trouble at every turn and questions God's purpose. But when she tumbles from the top beam of one of the houses into his arms, Sam suspects his life will never be the same. During their weeks together in the TeamWork camp, Sam and Lexa learn the power of forgiveness and healing. Enduring a chain of incidents which challenge their faith, trust and growing relationship, they look to the Lord for guidance as together they discover a love greater than either could ever imagine. At the end of the eight-week work camp, Sam is committed to a year-long, dangerous overseas mission for TeamWork. Can Lexa trust the Lord enough to let him go? Will Sam safely return and keep his promise to meet her at the Alamo? You'll keep turning the pages of this sweeping romantic adventure. With great characters, plenty of humor, enough emotion to make you shed a tear or two, and an ending that'll have you cheering, Awakening will leave you breathless. Hold on tight. The adventures of Lewis and Clarke have only just begun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing Story!! Jan. 1 2011
By Linda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Awakening is a well thought out story. The descriptions and depth of the characters and the events in their lives makes one feel as though you are there in Texas with them. Sam and Lexa's emotions and struggles are real emotions and struggles that every Christian faces, and the author handles them in a compassionate and in-depth way that is missing in most Christian romance novels. I'm greatly looking forward to reading more of Sam and Lexa's adventures in JoAnn Durgin's next novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christian Romance at its Best! Jan. 3 2011
By Jude Urbanski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you like well-written Christian romance that's character driven and action packed, yet takes you on deepening spiritual journeys with the hero and heroine, you'll love JoAnn Durgin's debut novel, Awakening, published by Canadian publisher, Torn Veil.

Ms. Durgin's fresh voice sets her novel in Texas at a TeamWork Missions camp directed by handsome cowboy, Sam Lewis, who's confident, flawed yet humble. The workers build houses, but volunteer Lexa Clarke looks dressed more for a style show. Lewis finds her arrival hurls the two of them into intriguing twists and turns. These make for satisfying reading.

The banter and repartee between Lewis and Clarke amuses and bewilders, but when both realize they have fallen in love with one another, dealing with those emotions brings some surprises. Durgin does a great job with her first book and this is a love story not to be forgotten, making the reader more than ready for the next Lewis and Clarke adventure!

I enjoyed reading this book on my new Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars WAKE UP TO A GREAT NEW AUTHOR!!! April 30 2011
By Julie Lessman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Finally! A contemporary romance that not only takes the pulse of love in the 21st century--it races it! Kudos to JoAnn Durgin for her debut novel, Awakening, which confronts real problems encountered by real Christians -- such as letting go of a painful past, forgiveness and even sexual pressures and spousal abuse -- countering them with a message of hope and faith that is so vital for Christians today.

Quite frankly, it's hard to believe this is a debut novel because Ms. Durgin has penned a compelling story with flesh-and-blood characters so real, they could live next door and a page-turning plot where the pages fly. Which is a good thing since you'll need a bit of breeze to cool you off when love "awakens" between Sam and Lexa, hooking you in with a tender love story that will make your heart sing. Can't wait for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Winner Jan. 19 2011
By Edwina E. Cowgill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
JoAnn Durgin has an absolute winner in her first published novel, "Awakenings."

This book has it all: characters you will love, and perhaps identify with, remarkable setting, and a plot that keeps you engrossed from beginning to end and leaves you wanting to read more about Lexa and Sam.

Lexa Clarke signs up for a TeamWork Missions summer assignment, dreaming of adventure in a far away, exotic country. However, she's sent to San Antonio where TeamWork Director Sam Lewis is not sure what to think of or what to do with his newest volunteer.

From the back cover:

"A God-fearing man. A God-seeking woman. For Sam Lewis and Lexa Clarke, it proves a combustible combination.

During their weeks together in the TeamWork camp, Sam and Lexa learn the power of forgiveness and healing. Enduring a chain of incidents which challenge their faith, trust and growing relationship, they look to the Lord for guidance as together they discover a love greater than either could ever imagine."

Ms. Durgin has done a marvelous job of communicating the principle of forgiveness--and from forgiveness--healing in "Awakening." It is a vital point many people need to hear and this book is a wonderful way for that message to be delivered to them.

But the book is not condemning or preachy. Rather it is full of love with some very humorous scenes and intrigue thrown in for good measure.

You will want to purchase this book for your library. It is a book that you will read over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Sweet Love Story! Jan. 10 2011
By kchlovestoread - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thought the Sam and Lexa story was wonderful and a good read! It was witty, cute and romantic with a little suspense thrown in the mix! The banter that goes on between the two characters was fun. The end left me wanting to hear more 'Lewis and Clarke expeditions'! I'm looking forward to reading the next chapter in their lives.
