About the book:
For these two broken hearts, the first step toward love will be a huge leap of faith.
Jessica Mason isn’t looking for love when she meets Ridley Chesterfield. Instead she is still reeling from the tragic, unexpected loss of her husband and daughter—and awaiting the arrival of her unborn child. Harboring the secret of her husband’s betrayal, her pain is deeper than anyone knows.
Ridley Chesterfield is hiding out in Hope Springs, Idaho, avoiding a political scandal and the barrage of false media headlines that have tarnished his good name. The last thing Ridley wants is a relationship—but when fate leads Ridley to form a friendship with his reclusive and pregnant neighbor, he wonders if this small-town hideout might be more of a long-term destination.
When Jessica begins to read her great-grandfather’s Bible, she finds a connection with a man she never knew. Somehow the verses he marked and the words he wrote in the margins open her heart to healing. And as Ridley and Jessica help each other forgive the people who have broken their hearts, they must decide if the past will define them or if they will choose to love again.
Who I Am with You weaves together a modern-day romance with Jessica’s great-grandfather’s story from the 1930s, reminding us that some truths can cross generations and that faith has the power to transform families forever.
Who I Am with You is the first book in Robin’s new “A Legacy of Faith” series.
Jessica is recovering from the accidental death of husband and young daughter. Living in a small community. She meets her new neighbor Ridley, (I love his unusual name) and he is staying in his parent’s cabin temporarily. Ridley adopts a dog that loves to go see Jessica.
I love a book that covers two time periods. Jessica reads her great-grandfathers bible that he wrote a lot about his life. I loved reading his story and how he came through all his struggles.
The story will continue in the next book called “I cross my heart”. I look forward to reading more about the town of Hope Springs, meeting new characters and more about Jessica and Ridley and the great grandfather.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author. I was not required to write a positive review. This is my own opinion.
