Enhance your purchase
Ten years ago Kathryn Jennings made a vow. For better or worse. And that promise still holds true, even though her marriage has not turned out as she expected. When her husband fails to return home one stormy winter night, she struggles to keep their ranch, but her efforts are blocked at every turn. After a shocking glimpse into her husband's past, Kathryn uncovers a hidden truth. What she wouldn't give to turn back time and be able to love her husband for the man that he was, not for the man she always wanted him to be.
Larson Jennings has spent his entire life running from a broken past, unable to trust, reluctant to try again. One fateful night, his life takes an unexpected twist, and soon he is forced to make a choice. Whatever he chooses, his decision may cost him his life.

love story, one you won't want to put down! Larson and Kathryn are the main couple, read their story to find out how they find their way back to each other. I look forward to reading the next book in the FOUNTAIN CREEK CHRONICLES.
Larson Jennings held part of himself back from his wife. His mother raised him in a brothel and he carried that shame deep inside and when his wife tried to be open with him he couldn't open up his heart to share what he considered his shame.
A brutal attack in a blinding snowstorm, a rescue and finding faith bring Larson back to Fountain Creek to find Kathryn and a way back into their marriage. Rekindled is a multi-level story that is reflected in the title of it Christian theme.
As noted in the title, all of her works are certainly clean and definitely Christian.
I watched at how our marriage could possibly rehappen. What I learned is that God changed both of the people's spiritual eyes in this love story. I watched all the beliefs and doubts this two went through. I watched death happen, and then new life get blown into the dry bones. I learned how important God's Word became to each individual, and how they prayed the Scriptures.
This story was extremely well written and edited. It had a very good basic foundation and the build up seemed so real--two steps forward and one step back. It is a very clean book and could be read by older teens on it. Part of the story is about a brothel and things if that nature, but it isn't the focus. A necessary part of the big picture though.

Als Larson nach Hause zurückkehrt, ist er körperlich durch schwere Verbrennungen gezeichnet und wird weder von seiner Frau noch von seinen Bekannten erkannt. Indes ist Kathryn guter Hoffnung und musste in ihrer finanziellen Not zu arbeiten beginnen, was für eine Frau ihrer Kreise im Jahre 1868 nicht üblich war. Larson will seine Frau von Neuem erobern, doch Kathryn ist hin und her gerissen zwischen ihrem Mann und dem "Fremden", zu dem sie sich zunehmend hingezogen fühlt.
Seit ich meinen Kindle habe, habe ich etliche christliche Storys gelesen, die in den USA im 19. Jahrhundert spielen, die mir aber nicht immer gefallen haben. Oft empfinde ich solche Geschichten als "predigend" und "moralisierend". Bei diesem Buch haben sich die Glaubensbekundungen jedoch natürlich angefühlt, so, als gehörten sie einfach zu den Protagonisten, und wirken nicht aufgesetzt. Haupt- und Nebenfiguren waren gut entwickelt und haben mir gut gefallen, die Storyline ist logisch und das Buch gut geschrieben.
Das Buch ist wunderbar zu lesen. Man kann mit den Hauptfiguren mitfühlen. Es ist ein bisschen wie ein schöner Traum.(;-))
