Hearts Made Whole – Jody Hedlund
After reading Hearts Made Whole, Jody Hedlund keeps her spot on my favorite authors list.
Caroline is the dutiful oldest daughter who finds herself in the position of authority in her family. Grace, worry and frustration fill her as she deals with raising her siblings, loses her job, and lives in her community.
Ryan comes in to take over her job. Haunted by demons in his past, he struggles with the right thing to do.
What I liked about this book:
- Caroline loves her family, and she grows frustrated with them. That is real. I do think she “got over” the frustration WAY easier than I would have, but at least it showed the struggle!
- Ryan realizes he has major problems he needs to overcome, and he struggles through it. He loses some battles, and he wins some battles!
- Although Tessa works hard and seems to love her family, she is 18 and think she knows better. TRUTH! After she makes a serious mistake, she learns her lesson even though she is suffering the consequences of the mistake!
- The bad guys lose. Who doesn’t like it when the bad guys get what they earned?!!
I have yet to read a book by Jody Hedlund that I haven’t loved! BUY this book!
