My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Love Unexpected is book #1 in series "Beacons of Hope" by Jody Hedlund
Fact and fiction makes this a worthy read..
Jody does research and we learn so much from her stories along with the adventure and romance she adds to make our hearts fill to the brim....I loved the characters in this story Emma had much heartache in life and didn't think she deserved anything better.
God loved this woman and showed her life can be so sweet and fulfilling when you do the right things for the right reasons. He gave her a new life when the old one slipped away beneath the deep waters of Lake Huron...Pirates overtook them and soon they had to abandon ship..Emma and her brother Ryan survived but lost all they had.
Patrick was the lighthouse keeper and was soon out trying to find survivors when he seen the shipwreck nearby. meeting Emma was the best thing that happened for both of them.
The preacher tries to help the two come together knowing it will help both of them and Emma accepts to have a home, Patrick needs someone to watch his son and help. A hasty marriage and they are soon heading to the lighthouse, time will find many secrets unfolding and doubts arise as to how wise this was.
Can they learn to forgive and move beyond what was in the past,leaving it in the past? I enjoyed reading this story, thanks Jody for another filled with Hope, I look forward to reading this series.
