When he fled Eagle Point years ago, former air force trauma surgeon Mitch Wellington left only broken dreams behind. Now he’s back with a new dream—opening a trauma center in the rural area and saving lives. He hopes to hire the quick-thinking nurse who impressed him during an emergency. But Lauren Bates lost her faith and doesn’t believe she deserves to help anyone. Mitch knows firsthand what loss feels like. And it’ll take all his devotion to show Lauren that sometimes the best medicine is a combination of faith, community—and love.
When Cheryl put out a call for influencers, I was happy to jump on the bandwagon and I’m so glad I did!
Cheryl created characters I loved, particularly Lem – Lauren’s grandfather and Mitch’s unofficially adopted grandfather. Through the trauma center and the patients there – specifically a young girl in a coma – we see God’s love through Mitch, Lauren and Lem.
Mitch has past relationship [and other] trauma to deal with. Lauren has not only relationship trauma but career [as a nurse] and relational [non-relationship] to deal with. Together, they work to overcome the pain of their pasts [and present] to discover the healing God has for them.
Like all Love Inspired books, the romance is sweet and tender, just right for a quick summer read. I look forward to book 2!
