About the Book:
Many consider Evangeline Hamilton cursed. Orphaned at a young age and possessing a pair of mismatched eyes--one bright blue, the other dark brown--Eva has fought to find her way in a world that constantly rejects her. Yet the support of even one person can help overcome the world's judgments, and Eva has two--Seth and Zach, two former orphans she now counts as brothers.
Seeking justice against the man who stole his birthright and destroyed his family, Logan Fowler arrives in 1880s Pecan Gap, Texas, to confront Zach Hamilton, the hardened criminal responsible for his father's death. Only instead of finding a solitary ruthless gambler, he discovers a man not much older than himself with an unusual family. When Zach's sister, Evangeline, insists on dousing Logan with sunshine every time their paths cross, Logan finds his quest completely derailed. Who is truly responsible for his lost legacy, and will restoring the past satisfy if it means forfeiting a future with Evangeline?
Basically all I have to say is this, 'Its a Karen Witemeyer book.' That's all you need to know! That right there explains everything. Karen is an amazing, incredibly talented author.From the very first page she had me hooked. I hadn't even finished the prologue before I was in love with the characters. (And crying) She has such a way with words that draws you in and keeps you enthralled with the story until the very last page. Her characters are very real, it's as if you are right there with them,experiencing the story as one of them as they face problems that can relate back to you.
This story had a slight mystery involved. Not a lot, just enough to keep you wondering. But the teasing between Evie and Logan added a lighthearted aspect to the story that kept you smiling or laughing out loud.
Evie has struggled her whole life, always being shunned because of her different colored eyes. But she doesn't let that bring her down, doesn't let it take the joy out of her life. What a wonderful message! No matter what comes our way, if we have the Lord we can have rest and joy.
Logan learned to let God handle his problems, to let go of past hurts. They were a perfect match for each other.
This story of three unwanted orphans coming together to form a Patchwork Family will make you cry as she tugs on your heart strings, and laugh at the puns and banter.
So all this to say, it was an amazing book! I already want to re-read it! So what are you waiting for? Go get yourself a copy! You won't regret it, trust me.
"People might try to hide their broken places and pretend to be whole, but the trust is that we all have failings. That is why we need each other."
I received this book free from the publisher for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.
