Some may call it happenstance, but I call it God's will that Chip & Callie come across two recently abandoned children on their way to the Double T Orphanage. When they discover the reason these two are alone, they know the perfect place to bring them to! Thus begins the journey that binds all of their lives together! I do admire Chip for his determination to stick to his life plan, but at the same token, even he admits he didn't consult God in the first place! Callie had some heartbreaking news as a child, God shows her in the end that He never sees her as broken. Five year old Jasper & two year old Ruby are delightful additions, grief stricken at first, but I loved watching them bloom like flowers in the end! Throw in a little suspense, great secondary characters, and you got yourself a tale of romance, discovering what matters the most, lives bound together by love, and God's perfect plan coming about in many surprising ways!
Here's a few snippets I enjoyed; page 38 where Callie & Chip are talking to each other:
Callie jerked her head up. “The Good Book says that 'all things work together for good to them that love God.' I firmly believe that. Don't you?”
(Chip) “I believe God can bring good out of bad, but He doesn't promise that life will be easy.”
(Callie) “No, but He does promise to be with us no matter what comes our way. That's a promise that fills me with hope.”
* I received a complimentary copy from the author. No favorable review was required and all opinions expressed here are strictly my own. *
I adored the two orphans, Jasper and Ruby, who warmed my heart with their needs and vulnerability. The occasional appearances of other characters from earlier books were a delight, but this book can definitely be read as a stand-alone. The suspense element in this story is an intriguing bonus.
Author Keli Gwyn always includes interesting historical detail in her stories, such as the art of cabinetry in this book. Her books touch my heart with their gentle message of faith and leave me with a happy sigh at the end. Great storytelling! I hope you enjoy Her Motherhood Wish, with its beautiful conclusion, as much as I did.
“The best we can do is love, support and encourage them, all the while praying that the Lord will work His healing.”
“…the Lord has a way of bringing joy from heartache.”
“You’re a beloved child of God, and He has plans for you.”
*I was given a copy of this book. I’m pleased to offer my honest review.
Her Motherhood Wish is one of the reasons Keli Gwyn is among my favorite authors. I thought Chip could be infuriating to me and I felt like he needed some good sense knocked into him. I wanted to scream at him and say, "Look what you have right in front of you!" But then he shows his soft side and I see why sweet Callie was falling for him.
I thought this book was great. There was a little mystery and suspense to make this sweet and clean story a perfect mix.
