About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

What Remains True by Nancy Naigle


Working at a little shop on Main Street in a small town is exactly the break that executive Merry Anna Foster needs following her divorce. She’s made a bet with her ex-husband that she can live on the amount of money she’s giving him in alimony. If she can do it, then Kevin will have to stop complaining and leave her alone. But after three months of this new life, will she even want to leave Antler Creek? 

Adam Lockwood, bull rider and owner of the local feed store, is having the best year of his rodeo career. He’s also a bit distracted by the pretty new neighbor living in his old bunkhouse. But Adam has no time for matters of the heart. He’s got his future all mapped out, and that future doesn’t involve a woman just yet. It doesn’t involve parenting a little girl either. However, Carly Fowler still suddenly leaves five-year-old Zan—the daughter Adam didn’t know he had—in his care. 

Is it possible that the future holds a life even better than what Merry Anna and Adam had each dreamed of? One that includes both tenderness and even love—not just for each other but for Zan too.

Together, these three souls find encouragement in the most mysterious places and discover a love that’s bigger than their pain, healing their wounded hearts in ways none of them could have hoped for or expected.


There are so many reasons to like this book. Characters that are imperfect but oh, so likable. Who doesn't love a cowboy, and who wouldn't sympathize with a woman who's been betrayed by a cheating husband? Add some special friends and throw in an adorable little girl who's a complete surprise to the man who fathered her. Mix in some twists and turns, stir in a lot of misunderstandings and place them among beautiful barn quilts in a small town in the North Carolina mountains. The result is a contemporary romance that will have you turning the pages!

Author Nancy Naigle has written a story that leaves readers yearning for a happy ending and hoping for a Hallmark movie! If you enjoy the 'friends-to-more' trope, you definitely want to read What Remains True.

I received a digital ARC of this book from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
