"Love is never complicated when you follow your heart. A closed heart will lead to a limited life."
Author Jill Weatherholt has done it again! Great characters, sweet romance, and a faith-filled message of trust and forgiveness---all of these make Searching for Home a book that you will want to read and savor. As I read it, I felt such a wide range of emotions. Sorrow that Luke Bennett had been deprived of a loving, nurturing environment when he was growing up; sadness that Meg Brennan believed that he had left Whispering Slopes because he didn't love her; and regret that she had never read the letter that Luke left behind. That unread letter could have changed both of their lives!
Searching for Home has all of the feels! It will tug at your heart strings, stir your emotions, and leave you cheering for Meg and Luke's reconciliation. There are also adorable six-year-old triplets in need of a loving home, and Tia, Tilly, and Tucker may be the keys to a happy future. Will these two hurting adults get a second chance, or will Luke return to the rodeo life that took him away from Whispering Slopes so many years ago?
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

More from Jill
It happened in slow motion.
I was traveling on the interstate at 65 mph, in the far-left lane. The traffic was heavy but moving.
Then the unthinkable happened. A wheelbarrow fell off the back of a pickup truck in front of my car.
Swerving to my right lane wasn’t an option, it was full of cars. The left shoulder was narrow and led to a steep drop off.
I gripped the wheel and had a split second to weigh my options. If I maintained my course, the wheelbarrow would burst through my windshield. If I went to the right, I could cause a multi-car pileup. There was a tractor trailer close behind me, so I couldn’t hit my brakes.
I prepared myself for the worst. Then I prayed to God to help me.
Moments later, when I was safely off the interstate, I burst into tears. I was still alive. No one was injured. But how? I couldn’t recall how I got to the exit ramp. How was I able to guide my car around the wheelbarrow?
Later, I realized that God was truly in control of my life. Growing up in the church and listening to my grandmother, I had always known God loved me. But that day, I felt His love more than I ever had my life. He wanted me to live. But why?
I’d like to think that He wasn’t quite finished with me. That maybe He had better things in store for me. Perhaps He blessed me with a gift to weave together a story that can give a person hope. A story that can bring a little light into what is sometimes a dark and scary world. After all, I didn’t grow up wanting to be a writer. Like that day on the interstate, it’s all God’s goodness.
