Book Review: Free to Heal by Susette Williams

Free to Heal



Free to Heal: A Historical Western Marriage of Convenience Novelette Series (Texas Wildflowers Book 2)




From Amazon:

Kane Calloway swore he’d never let anyone close to him again, that way he’d never feel the pain of loss. Living a life of reckless abandonment has brought him face-to-face with his demons—no more running. Either he gets married, or spends time in jail—neither sentence is appealing, but if he stays out of jail, he can at least help keep two small children from going hungry. 

Newly widowed, Faith Masterson is struggling to keep up with chores while tending to her two daughters. Without help, which she can’t afford to pay for, she and her daughters will surely starve by winter. After hearing about a new government program for women in her situation, she decides it is worth trying for the sake of her children. 

Will two destitute people be able to learn to love again? Or are they doomed to spend a marriage imprisoned by the loss they each encountered in their past? 

This is the second novelette of the new Texas Wildflowers series by bestselling authors Leah Atwood and Susette Williams. 


My Thoughts:


With summer outdoor chores starting I have found myself with less time to read.   For that reason,  I'm beginning to love Novelettes!   I do have my qualifications though for a great novelette, the ending has to be great and it has to be a clean, Christian romance.  When wrote well, they are just perfect for a little relaxation on the porch swing.  This wonderful novelette, Free to Heal by Susette Williams, fits the bill perfectly!

I was kept interested  by the thoughts of this program for jail inmates and whether Kane would be a nice guy for Faith.  My first reaction was that she should try and make it on her own because this was too risky.  Faith though was smart enough to have thought things out and knew she needed someone.   With her bravery, loving ways, and her hard work Faith was instantly my favorite character.

This book reminds me to draw on God to give you the strength and knowledge to carry on after the storm.

This book was given to me by the author in exchange for my honest review.
