A Love to Call Mine by Merrillee Whren
Impossible wishes. A take-charge nurse. And an inconsiderate, self-centered man. God works through the difficult times in our lives, even Heather's preconceived notions and Max's annoyance of being told what to do.
Where does God's plan fall in for someone who has cancer? "It's hard to let our faith rule when bad things are happening to us." Max has to learn that God wants what's best for us, but sometimes we can't see it for what is happening around us. That's where faith comes in. Will God open Heather's eyes to see the real man before her today, not who he used to be before?
I loved this story by Merrille Whren. She's got a great author's voice. It's not often a book brings tears to my eyes when I get to the ending, but this one did. Heather and Max as a couple, their struggles, and the story line pulled me in. I didn't want to see this one end. If you're facing a trial and you see no way out, or how God could even have a hand in the outcome, you need to read this book. You may not understand the journey, but you can feel God's hand in yours.
