Book Review:

Broken hearts and second chances. That’s what makes A Home for Her Daughter a wonderful novel. Drew and Janie are a wonderful match, but they’ve both been left with scars they think they’ll never be able to overcome.

Taking Janie’s past into consideration is a big part of this tale, and Drew will have to learn what it means to love someone who’s been broken.

That’s where Janie’s strength emerges. The love she shows her daughter and her ability to keep moving forward in spite of everything puts a noble thread in this book to intertwine with the romance and spirituality.

I loved reading about Riley, Janie’s daughter. In a sense, this is her book as much as it is Janie and Drew’s, and Riley brought much needed spunk to many moments.

I received a copy of this book from the author via Celebrate Lit. I was not required to leave a positive review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

I have a confession. I own a collection of journals. A huge collection. At last count, there were sixty-two beautifully bound books, some with plain covers, others with verses or artistic designs. You could say I’m a hoarder, but I find comfort in knowing I have an unlimited number of blank pages to record my hopes, dreams and prayers. That’s exactly what I did on June 22, 2008. On that day, I wrote the following:

I want to be a writer, not just a writer who keeps a journal or casually writes stories. I want to be a published writer. Lately, I’ve become obsessed with reading author’s websites, their bios, how they got started writing and how difficult or easy it was for them to get published. This is what I want to do with my life. This is what I will do. I can accomplish anything I put my mind to. God has put this dream in my heart and now I will pursue this dream.

Fast forward to March 31, 2015. I made a last-minute decision to enter Harlequin Love Inspired Blurb to Book Contest. I submitted a one sentence blurb, along with one page of the first and only book I’d ever written.

On April 13, 2015, I was stunned to learn I had advanced in the contest. I then submitted a synopsis and the first three chapters.

On May 15th, I was notified I had moved on in the contest. I was required to submit the entire manuscript. At that time, the book was merely a rough draft, so a lot of rewriting was required before my deadline.

On August 17, 2015, I received a call that forever changed my life. While working my day job, my cell phone rang—it was New York calling. An editor from Harlequin had called to offer me a contract on the first book I’d ever written. My first book Second Chance Romance was released on March 1, 2017.

Five published books later, I still fill my journals with my dreams and prayers.
