About the book:
Deborah MacCallister, head nurse at the Blessing hospital, has loved Toby Valders since her school days, but she’s had enough of their on-again, off-again relationship. Toby truly cares for Deborah, but he’s never felt like he could commit to marriage or a family.
When Anton Genddarm, the new schoolteacher, comes to town, the young women of Blessing see a chance to force Toby’s hand with a little strategic matchmaking. But real sparks fly between Deborah and Anton, and she finds herself in an even more complicated situation. The attention she gets from Anton makes Toby do some serious soul-searching, but is it too late?
Then Deborah receives an invitation to study the latest advances in nursing at a hospital in Chicago, and she faces a hard choice. To leave or stay? Should she give up on the dream of Toby and accept the interest of Anton?
What a sweet and entertaining book! I love the community and the residents of Blessing. Everyone worked so hard toward the betterment of not only themselves but for future generations. They always held onto their faith no matter how tough things got. The power of prayer is highlighted throughout.
I loved the close friendships and how the women worked just as hard as the men. The box social was one of my favorite of their community activities.
I loved Deborah and Toby! Their story was made even more entertaining when Anton arrives in Blessing. He’s been hired as a schoolteacher and he adds some fun and lighthearted moments to the storyline.
Just a really great read overall.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher and have given my honest opinion.
