Review PLUS Giveaway: The Hearts We Mend by Kathryn Springer

The Hearts We MendThe Hearts We Mend, book two of the Banister Falls series, can be read as a stand alone, however,  I believe that the reading experience will be even better if you also read book one of the series, The Dandelion Field. I loved both books and they have each taken their place on my shelf as top favorites!

There were so many things I loved about this story. I thought that the way Evie and Jack met was great. It was just a fun set up for the story and highlighted their differences.

Evie was such a likable and wonderful character. She went through a great transformation in this story! What a work God did in her. And much of the way that God helped Evie, was through Jack’s influence in her life. Jack was simply fabulous. His willingness to help others and the way he cared for people demonstrated the amazing impact God had made on his life. I loved the attraction between these two and the hopeful feeling of this story.

It was fun to be able to continue to follow along with the main characters from the first book and see what was happening in their lives. I highly recommend both books in the series for fans of contemporary fiction, especially those who are fond of the works of Denise Hunter.

About the book:
The Hearts We Mend
The Hearts We Mend (Zondervan, March 2016)

Planning and Post-It notes are the epitome of Evie’s life. But when she meets Jack, her life gets more than a little complicated.

Thirteen years ago, Evie’s firefighter husband was killed in the line of duty, leaving her to raise their young son, Cody, alone. Now, Cody is marrying the love of his life, and as he packs up his belongings, the house feels as empty as Evie’s heart. But for all her planning and mad organizational skills, Evie could never have anticipated the dramatic shift her life is about to make.

Tattooed, rough-around-the-edges Jack raises quite a few eyebrows in the tight-knit community of Banister Falls. Where Evie’s life is stream-lined, Jack’s approach to living is moment-by-moment. But as Evie gets drawn into Jack’s world—a world that isn’t as safe or predictable as the one she’s worked so hard to create—he challenges her to open her eyes to the problems outside the walls of the church.

Jack doesn’t make Evie feel comfortable, but he definitely makes her feel something. Something she hasn’t felt since Max passed away—or, maybe ever. Because even though Jack isn’t anything like her late husband, he just might be everything she needs.
