  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2022 April #1
    Rose Meadows is desperate to reunite with her daughters after tuberculosis kept them apart for two years, but having no home and no husband in 1925 in Kentucky leaves her only one choice. When his estranged late brother's family appeals to him for help, Dirk Meadows agrees to give Rose and her children a place in his home but not in his heart. The devastation of lost love and a terrible accident scarred him in more ways than one. But the compassionate presence of Rose and the girls soon reveals a new magic within Dirk's Meadowland farm and a future together. In her latest Kentucky-set novel, Gabhart tells a story about finding forgiveness, love, and a home where you least expect it. Themes of grace in adversity and Christian faith through prayer and scripture are prominent, with emphasis on experiencing spirituality within nature. Gabhart shines in crafting protagonists who exude quiet strength and optimism in search of wholeness. With its pastoral setting and reflective characters, this cozy read explores the uncertainty present in every new beginning. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
