REVIEW: Make You Feel My Love by Robin Lee Hatcher is a wonderful book. She is a great author and I don’t know why she has recently popped up on my radar. The books I’ve read by her are Contemporary Christian Fiction. These books often remind me to lean on my faith. I think it is something some of us forget in our everyday lives now and then.
There are two time lines in this story. One starting in 1895 and the other is modern day. I loved both timeliness equally well and got so involved when reading one that I sometimes went kicking and screaming to the other. It only took a paragraph or two and I was completely immersed again.
The books by Hatcher I’ve read have such great characters and I love a story that is character driven rather than by events only. These characters have a say in how they deal with life and what is thrown at them. They find a way to deal with the the challenges that come their way. I like that! Makes me remember I have that ability also with God walking with me every step of the way.
I feel renewed after reading Make You Feel My Love! I will live in that cocoon for several days. Isn’t that a special book? If you love Robin Lee Hatcher, you’ll want to read this one. If you do, let me know what you think! If you haven’t read any of her books yet, this is a good one to start with.
I received a copy of this book from #ThomasNelson/#Netgalley for a fair and honest review. Thank you!
SYNOPSIS: One broken woman. One lost man. And the long-buried secrets tying them together.
After escaping an abusive relationship, Chelsea Spencer flees to Chickadee Creek—the town where her great aunt Rosemary owns a quaint little antique shop. There, Chelsea plans to help with the shop as her aunt heals from an accident—and perhaps find some healing of her own.
Liam Chandler was one film away from a leading role when his brother Jacob was stricken with cancer. After spending the last months of Jacob’s life with him in Boise, Liam heads to the vacation home he built outside of Chickadee Creek to get his life and his faith back on track.
While working to clean out a storage room in the antique shop, Chelsea finds an old violin. Aunt Rosemary says she may have the instrument, but they soon learn it is very valuable and once belonged to Cora Chandler, Liam’s great-great-grandmother.
Drawn together by the old violin and stories from the past, Chelsea and Liam begin to find answers for their present and the future God has in store for them.
