A Family to Call Ours by Merrillee Whren
I loved this story by Merrillee Whren. This is Book 3 of the Front Porch Promises series, but you can read this one without having read the others. Tara Madsen is a widow with a young daughter Hailey who is fighting cancer. Caleb Fitzpatrick comes back to town to find his parents have hired Tara as their receptionist. Is she really who she seems, or does she have ulterior motives? Have his parents trusted the wrong person again? Caleb is still reeling from the actions of his ex, the last person his parents tried to help. Is Tara just like her or can she be trusted?
Tara had fallen in love at a young age, but since he’d died and left her with debt, she couldn’t trust another man to fall in love with. Plus she has a daughter to watch out for now, better than her parents had cared for her. They’d left her at her grandparents and she hadn’t seen them since. She wouldn’t do the same to her daughter.
Can Caleb and Tara learn to lean on God and not worry? In the midst of someone accusing Tara of not being a good mother and Tara’s mother coming back to see her, can Tara trust Caleb? Can Caleb trust Tara not to leave with his heart? What must he do to convince her of his love for her and her daughter?
I recommend this story to anyone who loves a great inspirational romance. I enjoyed the characters and their stories. It’s hard to trust God when things aren’t going well. But as Tara and Caleb find out, trusting Him in the hard times brings peace in the midst of trouble.
