I read this book as a member of the Christian Fiction Blog Tours alliance, A Family Forever by Brenda Coulter (ISBN: 0-373-87358-1).
A story of trying to do the right thing in an unexpected tragedy. With the best of attention Tucker Sharpe proposes to Shelby, fiancee of his brother who died in a motorcycle accident. She is expecting a child and he wants to look after the child. As a Christian he seeks advise about marriage from his pastor but ignores his counsel.
Shelby struggles with issues of growing up with an abusive father. Tucker shows his consistent strength and teaches her what it is to find a stable and safe place to come. Together they work their relationship out with each other and the church. A delight in seeing Shelby learn to trust while love developes.
An easy read leaving a lasting impression of the love of God and the love of man and woman as they walk before God.
Tucker is a bicycle enthusiast and reaches out to a trouble youth offering a job at his bike shop. The youth's reckless attitude reminds him of his lost brother. Shelby, a private violin teacher, befriends the musically gifted youth and offers lessons.
