Make You Feel My Love by Robin Lee Hatcher is a dual time line story that tells the story of the Chandler family, those from early Chickadee Creek history and now. Chelsea aunt is injured and the request to go help her is an answer to prayer to get away from her abusive ex-boyfriend. While cleaning at her aunt’s antique shop she finds a violin behind a cabinet. The violin belongs to the ancestor of movie star Liam Chandler.
I really enjoyed reading this story. This is a beautifully written story of two women and the Chandler men who captured their attentions. The topic of abuse is briefly mentioned in a respectable way to show the strength and faith that the two women had to get away from the men who tried to control them. This is a Christian fiction story that deals with women’s issues and has a nice blend of romance and suspense. This story also deals with the loss of a loved one and finding out family secrets. I loved how Liam decided to move forward with his career as well as how he dealt with his father selling some of the family’s land in Chickadee Creek.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley, this is my honest review.
About the Book
One broken woman. One lost man. And the long-buried secrets tying them together.
After escaping an abusive relationship, Chelsea Spencer flees to Chickadee Creek—the town where her great aunt Rosemary owns a quaint little antique shop. There, Chelsea plans to help with the shop as her aunt heals from an accident—and perhaps find some healing of her own.
Liam Chandler was one film away from a leading role when his brother Jacob was stricken with cancer. After spending the last months of Jacob’s life with him in Boise, Liam heads to the vacation home he built outside of Chickadee Creek to get his life and his faith back on track.
While working to clean out a storage room in the antique shop, Chelsea finds an old violin. Aunt Rosemary says she may have the instrument, but they soon learn it is very valuable and once belonged to Cora Chandler, Liam’s great-great-grandmother.
Drawn together by the old violin and stories from the past, Chelsea and Liam begin to find answers for their present and the future God has in store for them.
