Synopsis:An old, forgotten chapel holds the key to love and forgiveness.
Retired hall-of-fame football coach Jimmy Westbrook never imagined anything would come of his labor of love—building a wedding chapel for Collette Greer, the woman he fell in love with in 1949. But now a realtor wants the land the chapel sits on, and he sees no reason to hang onto the past.
Photographer Taylor Branson is trying to make a life for herself in New York. Leaving her hometown of Heart’s Bend, Tennessee, she put a lot of things behind her, including her family’s string of failed marriages. When she falls head-over-heels for Jack Gillingham, a top ad man, their whirlwind romance and elopement leave her with doubts. Jack, while genuine in his love for Taylor, can never seem to find the right way to show her he really cares.
When a post-mortem letter from Taylor’s Granny Peg shows up, along with an old photo, she is driven to uncover family secrets and the secret to her own happiness, starting with an assignment to photograph an unknown, obscure wedding chapel back in Heart’s Bend.
Taylor begins a mission to convince Jimmy that the chapel is worth saving—and that forgiveness and healing might happen within the chapel’s walls . . . for both of them.
What did I think of this book:
I enjoyed this book from the very first page right up until the very last page. I enjoy reading books about weddings especially when t here is a little family history and secrets involved in the stories. Another thing I liked about this story is that it went back and forth in time between the present in New York and the past in Heart's Bend. What a great name for a plcace with a little wedding chapel. The author always does such a great job with the descriptions in her stories, it is as if she is painting a picture for you as you read. The characters of this book are so real they could be someone you know. Another hit by this author.
