Sea Glass Cottage - Review
When painful pasts collide, can love overcome heartache--and triumph despite the odds? Christi Reece is desperate. The one-time golden girl's life has tarnished, and a cascade of setbacks has left her reeling. She needs help, and she's certain Jack Colby is in a position to provide it. When she shows up in Hope Harbor, however, Jack wants nothing to do with the woman who betrayed him. He's built a new life on the Oregon coast--and there's no room in it for Christi, even after she takes refuge in a charming but mysterious cottage nearby. Yet it soon becomes apparent his opinion of her may need revising . . . especially when he ends up needing her help. Can these two hurting souls open their hearts to a new beginning?
Come home to Hope Harbor--where hearts heal . . . and love blooms.
I loved this story. The messages of forgiveness and healing were so beautiful, as were the testimonies of God's timing. Fiction is how we process the world in a safe way. This book has a lot to process and a picturesque setting in which to do that. Christi was beautifully flawed and yet hopeful. She is a determined woman with strength beyond what she knows she has. Jack is hesitant to start over (understandably) with Christi. He doesn't trust that she has changed. The story highlights the way this changes. I love the character of Charley, there is more to him than meets the eye. He is definitely the best. I need to read the rest of the series to learn more about the people in this town. The faith lessons in this book were from the perspectives of multiple characters coming from multiple backgrounds. It was beautiful and I can't wait to go back to Hope Harbor.
