Believe In Me
When I’m With You by Jennifer Rodewald is a charming contemporary Christian novel. It is the third book in the Big Prairie Romance series but can be read as a stand-alone.
We all have a past. We need to face our pasts before we can move forward into our futures. Sometimes our actions are misunderstood by others because they do not know the roads we have travelled.
Locking up our hearts to prevent hurt does not work. We will become bitter if we refuse to forgive those who have hurt us. The sins of others must not be projected onto the new people that we meet.
Everyone deals with grief differently. We need to realise that and not project onto others what we think they mean. We need to have honest conversations for fear of misunderstandings.
Animals, particularly horses and cattle feature in the story. The bond with humans is beautiful but there are some heart-wrenching scenes.
Everyone deserves a second chance. We need to always look for the good in others.
Jennifer Rodewald has created an eclectic mix of characters. I loved the very wise great aunt Jane who always looks for the best in others. The witty banter between the two main characters brought a smile to my lips and joy to my heart.
When I’m With You was another delightful offering from Jennifer Rodewald.
I will leave you with a powerful quote:
“All of us have parts of our stories that should be covered with grace.”
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
