“What’s ultimately of more value is God’s ability to strengthen us with power through His Spirit, so that we’ll be able to deal with the circumstances He doesn’t change”
True to you, written by Becky Wade, is book one in A Bradford Sisters Romance series.
Upon graduation Nora Bradford’s father gave her a historical village. Nora has built up the village that now includes shops. Working in the library in the village, Nora has helped people go genealogy research.
Former Navy SEAL John Lawson has been given a medical diagnoses that he wants more information about. John was adopted as a baby and the condition he has is genetic. He has decided to search for his birth parents. With Nora’s help, he is able to find his mother. Nora and John develop a friendship as they work together.
Nora’s sister Willow has come home to help out while her parents are on a missions trip. She decides to take it upon herself to do a total make over of Nora. She helps Nora select more attractive clothing and even convinces her to get a new hair style.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I really look forward to the rest of the series. The descriptions in this story are so clear, it is easy to see how Nora looked before Willow decided on a redo. The characters are so well introduced it is easy to follow along with them. As John struggles to deal with what he learns about his birth parents, he has to give the situation over to God and he has to learn that he is not to blame for what his father did.
This is a story that has many emotions. Some funny, some very hard to deal with. I think anyone who likes to read contemporary fiction will enjoy this book. The book is labeled as contemporary romance, but the romance is not so overwhelming. The mystery and suspense around finding John’s birth family helps kept my interest in the story.
