In Review: A Love To Last Forever is the follow up book to A Promise to Believe. (So of course, you need to buy both books for the beach?!?)
Beth is adventurous -- in her heart. She travels the world and has many adventures through the pages of the many books she reads. In life, all she really wants is a cookie cutter life. A husband in a house with a normal, regular routine. Of course, somehow everyone's normal has different meanings and for Nick, the man who adores Beth with every breath he takes, his past makes normal almost as complicated as her dime novels.
The theme of this book seems to be "Seek First the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness." I really enjoyed that reminder that permeated this book. It came at a good moment for me. Seeking God in His Word first is a struggle that I think a lot of people have today. Seeing this played out in this book was a wonderful part of the story line and I really appreciated that being such a strong presence.
Book Description: All Beth Gallatin has really wanted out of life is to settle down in one town, with one man, and raise a family. But with her father's roaming ways, she's always been denied that dream; instead, she found solace in reading romantic books. With her father's passing, she can, for the first time, dare to claim the rugged Montana frontier as her home.
Nick Lassiter has loved Beth since she first came to town, but she's always seemed to think of him more as a brother. Just when he finally gets Beth to consider him, however, a challenger threatens the affection growing between them. But neither Nick nor Beth is prepared when they must face the consequences of Nick's complicated past.
