Like The Wind by Robin Lee Hatcher

My Review

Like the Wind, by Robin Lee Hatcher, is a dual time line story that takes place mainly in Bethlehem Springs. When her father dies and with no preparation for her, Emma is forced to move to Bethlehem Springs with her mother. Only when she gets involved with the community drama program does she start accepting the situation. Tyler is also involved in the drama program and quickly becomes friends with Emma’s mother, which might be questionable because he was hired to investigate her and her ability to care for Emma.

This is a wonderfully written story that has so much emotions spread through out it. It is so realistic in the adjustment Emma and her mother have to go through. But her mother’s love shines through with all that she does for Emma. I enjoyed how the story in the diary shows how much faith was needed to live during the great depression. With the lose of multiple homes and a daughter, the writer struggles with her faith. This was an enjoyable, yet sad, to read.

I voluntarily received a complimentary copy of this story from Thomas Nelson Publishers through NetGalley, this is my honest review.

About the Book

A life in pieces. A hundred-year-old journal. And a chance for love to be reborn.

Olivia Ward arrived in Bethlehem Springs alone—with no job, no home, and no money—after her manipulative ex-husband used his power and wealth to destroy everything. Six years later, the peaceful life she rebuilt is once again turned upside down when she learns that her fifteen-year-old daughter, Emma, will be coming to live with her. The reunion should be a dream come true, but years of deception have driven a wedge between them. And Emma seems more interested in an old diary she discovered than reconciliation with her mother.

Tyler Murphy knows what it’s like to lose everything. Propelled by his history in the foster-care system, he’s determined to root out dishonesty and protect the most vulnerable through his work as an investigator. When he’s hired to investigate Olivia Ward, though, he finds himself longing to believe she’s exactly who she appears to be, and he soon realizes that his desire to learn more about her has nothing to do with his job. But how can he pursue a relationship that began with a lie?

In this latest novel from award-winning author Robin Lee Hatcher, an antique diary, a family-fueled investigation, and unexpected feelings collide to create a promise that’s worth fighting for.
