Book description: "Deborah MacCallister, head nurse at the Blessing hospital, has loved Toby Valders since her school days, but she's had enough of their on-again, off-again relationship. With the help of the young women of Blessing, Deborah decides that by the end of the summer she will either have won Toby's heart--or she'll give up on him forever.
Toby truly cares for Deborah, but he's never felt like he could commit to marriage or a family. When Anton Gendarme, the new schoolteacher, comes to town, sparks fly between Deborah and Anton. The sudden competition makes Toby do some serious soul-searching, but is it too late?
As the town of Blessing prepares for harvest, Deborah faces the most important decision of her life. But where does her heart truly belong?"
My review: I really had a hard time getting into this book. I don't think that was the fault of the author. This is book 4 of 4 in the Song of Blessing series by Lauraine Snelling. I definitely needed to have read the first three books before reading this one. I couldn't keep all of the characters straight and there was just too much of the story that I couldn't follow very well without the background from the first three books. By the end of the book, I was enjoying the few characters that I could keep straight, and I did enjoy Mrs. Snelling writing style. I have enjoyed other books by her that I have read in the past. Maybe one day soon I can read the first three books in this series and be able to appreciate this one a little more. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
