Summary

Mortified after her semester abroad is cut short, Amelia Christiansen returns to Deep Haven, certain she isn't brave enough for the adventures she's dreamed of. The last thing she expects is for the man who broke her heart to cross the Atlantic and beg forgiveness.

Heir to a European hotel dynasty, Roark St. John has trekked from one exotic locale to another, haunted by tragedy and the expectations that accompany his last name. Amelia is the first woman to give him a reason to stop running. He'll do anything for a second chance - even contend with Amelia's old flame, who is intent on sending Roark packing.

While one surprise after another leaves Amelia reeling, Roark's continued presence only highlights the questions pursuing her. Like him, is she running from the life God has called her to? Could finding her new place mean leaving home behind?

Excellent story. Narrator should not do accents

Excellent story with good character development. The narrator however should not try to do accents. She does an outstanding job in every other way, but is so bad trying to do accents that the British accent sounds more like a speech impediment.

great book, great series, overall very captivating

great book, was really a great series... very few still moments.... and kept you wanting the next one. wish the jump from book 4 to book 5 was more bridged, as I think the story about continue on with Casper's view... but hopefully that means book 6 will come out with that.

OMG!

I am in awe of how good my God is and how this story centered around submitting to his will for our lives. Where is your focus, on people, things, or God? Oh the possibilities and hope gleaned from this story. Crying tears of complete joy. Awesome storyline and performance.

Fun and sweet story

I really liked this story, although it was not one that grabbed my attention and held it till the end, it was good and enjoyable! I loved the way they each came to know God's will for them in their lives.
