This is another great writer I can attest to! Her books are clean and inspiring!
After surviving an abusive marriage, Victoria Newel needs a clean slate for herself and her son. Taking a job as a math teacher, she moves across the country to the small town of Lincoln, Utah, where no one knows her and she can start over. However, her new colleague, Drew Dalton, offers her friendship and maybe something more. But has her heart healed enough that she could trust again?
Drew Dalton lost his wife to cancer years ago and he locked his heart away, throwing himself into his teaching job. But when Victoria Newel starts working at the high school, she awakens something in him that he never thought he’d feel again. Her gentle nature and quiet strength draws him to her, but it’s obvious she’s hiding something in her past from him. Can he open his heart to a woman who harbors so many secrets of her own?
Such a good story. I really like how the lives were similar and yet so different. The characters were all well-developed and I could feel their emotions very strongly. It made me feel like I want to try harder to handle the situations in my life better.
It was a good clean romance and a story about overcoming things in this life and moving forward. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone from teenage to adult.
I would give this a literary rating of 5/5
