5 STARS: I LOVED IT!!!
But single dad Trace Bowman isn’t about to let Cheyenne hide away her heart. He can’t ignore the special way she has with his daughter, Zoey– or how she’s reminded him of the power of real love. Now he needs to convince Cheyenne that Redemption is more than a place to hide–it’s also a way to be found….
This was a beautiful and deeply emotional book. Cheyenne was a victim of rape. The violent and brutal act was talked about in past tense without a lot of detail. I get attached and live through the characters I read so I don’t like to read about rape because of the paranoia that comes with that knowledge. The author did a great job expressing the feelings of a woman who had been raped. Above the violence and trauma it was a story of hope and healing through God and faith.
Cheyenne was a tough woman who’d been a police officer before she moved away and found Redemption, Oklahoma. She soon met the local vet and single dad Trace. Trace was charming and kind and patient. Cheyenne first loved his daughter Zoey who was blind yet confident and joyful.
Finding Her Way Home was so heartwarming to read. I loved it! I think anyone who loves a romance full of deep emotion will love this book.
