ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Lost and Found Faith
Author: Laurel Blount
Publisher: Love Inspired
Release Date: August 24, 2021
Genre: Christian, Contemporary Romance
A terrible tragedy nearly broke him. Can love put him back together again?
Widowed history teacher Neil Hamilton has lost his way—at work, with people and even with his faith. But Neil’s shut-down existence is disrupted when a small toddler and his would-be foster mother, vibrantly pretty Maggie Byrne, come crashing into Neil’s yard and his life. Can this absentminded teacher find himself again…and take a chance on love, too?
From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.
I really enjoyed this sweet story. Maggie and Neil both showed their kind hearts as they worked together to help little Oliver learn to trust. Both Maggie and Neil had some very painful things that had happened to them in their pasts and these events affected them and helped to form them into the people they were when they met. The tragedy that Neil went through was much more recent than Maggie’s hard childhood and he was still reeling from the pain and loss when the story began.
I really enjoyed seeing Maggie and Neil begin to connect to each other as they connected with Oliver. I felt like Neil was coming back to life bit by bit as he interacted with Maggie and served others with her. Neil’s absentmindedness drove me crazy, yet it was clear that under all the pain he was a caring man. And Maggie epitomized love and care in the way she treated everyone.
I enjoyed meeting characters in this new community in Lost and Found Faith. It is the first book in the Cedar Ridge series and I look forward to reading future stories.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
