Learning to Trust

Young widow Tara Madsen has spent the last two years dealing with her eight-year-old daughter’s battle with cancer. Now a new job means the opportunity to give Hailey the best Christmas ever, but the arrival of Caleb Fitzpatrick, her employers’ son, and overreaching authorities put that goal in jeopardy.

Caleb returns to his small Massachusetts hometown with one mission—to make sure another charlatan doesn’t take advantage of his parents and their generosity. When he meets Tara, the new receptionist at the family business, he is immediately on guard. A pretty blonde fooled him once before, and he will make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Will Tara’s sincere and giving nature soften Caleb’s heart and help him learn to trust and love again?

I really enjoyed this third installment of the Front Porch Promises series. It reads fine as a standalone, but I loved getting brief glimpses of characters from the previous books. This one pulled at my heart strings with young Hailey—Tara’s daughter—battle with cancer two years prior. It’s hard to see any young child suffer through a major health scare and not knowing how the future will play out. She’s a delightful girl, full of life & laughter and brings so much depth to the story! You can’t help but fall in love with her precarious nature. I also sympathized with both Caleb and Tara as they worked through difficult past relationships & hurt that broke their trust. It made it almost impossible for them to want to love again. But I loved how they both relied on God to help guide them in everything they did. Their faith played a major role and it was very refreshing for me to read. This is one of my favorite lines in the book from Tara, “Trusting God through the bad times wasn’t easy. For too many years, she had resisted letting God have a place in her life. Now she understood her grandparent’s faith so much more”. Bad or difficult times come, and this helped remind me that I have a God who cares for me in the midst of all those times, what a refreshing reminder! This is one reason I love reading stories by this author, how she allows her faith to shine through! A delightful story about second chances, forgiveness, broken lives put back together & clinging to ones faith in the middle of difficult times.
