Larkspur Cove by Lisa Wingate

Life rarely follows the course we expect.  Both Andrea Henderson and Game Warden Mart McClendon discover that truth as they each find themselves back home at Moses Lake.

Lisa Wingate alternates chapters and point of view between Andrea and Mart, weaving in strands from their pasts as she moves the story along in present time.  Histories that include a broken marriage, a tragic accident and more bends than the backroads Andrea learns to drive, have lead to broken dreams and shattered faith.

God's hand is upon both of these main characters, who find themselves drawn together in a mission to help a strange young girl who appears to be living with the slow and reclusive Len across the lake.  Hurts overflow as they learn to trust God and each other. 

I found this novel engaging. It was easy to like the characters I met as I turned the pages and I felt compelled to read on to see how God would smooth out all of the rough edges and work all things for His good purposes.

You can read Chapter 1 at Bethany House Publishers Media page HERE and I believe you'll find yourself, like I did,  wanting to read more.

I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
