What appropriate timing to read Winter’s End at a time when the pollen count is rising and my nose is itchy! 🙂
Oh my, this was a great book. Ruth Logan Jones has written a beautiful romance with the serious issues of foster care and the ailing health of a loved one. She delves into hospice care and the different stages of feelings that go along with that. Not an easy topic, but Ruth has a way of bringing the reader deep within the heart of the hero, making you ache for him.
I was drawn to Kayla, the hospice nurse who takes care of Marc DeHollander’s dying father. She is strong and has a caring heart that eases the journey of the families whose loved one is dying. And Marc…sigh…I love a tough guy who struggles with his emotions. I love the vulnerability Ruth brings to the hero and his obvious love for his father.
Oh, and don’t forget the EXCELLENT romantic tension! Goodness, the sparks fly between Kayla and Marc and kept me turning the pages! Sigh….I love conflict. 🙂
Here’s the back cover:
After growing up in foster care, nurse Kayla Doherty’s finally found a faith to rely on and a job she loves. But that’s all put to the test when she’s called to care for surly Marc DeHollander’s dying father. Marc’s struggling to keep his cattle farm afloat while dealing with his father’s illness. He doesn’t have time to fall for the beautiful hospice nurse. But as the frigid New York winter turns to spring, can he find a place for Kayla–and the Lord–in his heart?
You’ll love this heartwarming book!
