Love, Jane by Raneé S. Clark
Jane Reeves and Sean O’Callaghan seem to be a match made in heaven—but the timing is all wrong.
Jane has her heart set on serving a mission, and she can’t delay telling Sean the news any longer: not only has she quietly submitted her mission papers, but she’s also leaving in a month . . . for Alaska.
Shocked and devastated, Sean struggles to come to terms with Jane’s decision. Unable to deny the depth of their feelings for one another, Sean makes a promise to wait for her.
Life unfolds for both Jane and Sean, with communications limited to weekly e-mails. But with just a few months left in Jane’s mission, Sean’s messages stop. When she receives the dreaded “Dear Jane” breakup along with the news that she has been replaced by Sean’s former flame, Jane knows the future she envisioned now belongs to another woman. But upon her return home, Jane quickly realizes some things are worth fighting for— perhaps, most of all, a shot at true love.
Whenever dating had a possibility of getting serious, Jane broke it off. She was now teaching High School Spanish and loving it! She regrettably was also loving her new relationship with the new Assistant Football Coach. At first it seemed unnecessary to inform him she had her mission papers into Church Headquarters preparatory to leaving on a Mission for 18 months… Then she couldn’t find “the right moment”, afraid of losing him. Finally, her Mission papers arrived. One month before she was to leave, Sean told her he loved her and soon after, she told him she was leaving on a mission. In spite of hurt and anger, Sean agreed to wait for her…While vulnerable, at a very difficult time in Sean’s life, he ran into Victoria…Though he tried to stay true, Jane was gone and Vitoria was there and determined.
The drama unfolds from the very beginning. This is a story about honor, values, communication, weakness during trials, faith and conviction. It alternates between Sean’s and Jane’s views. It gives insight into different individuals views.
The characters feel alive. The situations easily viewed. The Title and Cover are a great “fit” for this novel. The writing slightly lacked “energy” but it was a very realistic, touching tale with a :smooth flow”. It was well worth reading.
This earns a strong Four Stars rating,
