A Cousin's Promise
In Review: Life can change in an instant. Not fair, but true.
A group of friends get into a van one day to take a trip to Hershey Park for a day of fun when tragedy strikes. They are in an accident that leaves several of them dead and Wayne in the hospital ultimately faced with the loss of his leg. Lorraine, his fiance, sees her future fading away as Wayne feels he can't be the husband he wanted to be. As Lorraine is dealing with feelings of rejection, Jake is hundreds of miles away reading about the accident and he decides to rush home to check on his former love, who also happens to be Lorraine.
The icing on the cake? The "mother-in-law" who has decided that she does not like Lorraine and does everything who make her life miserable. But Lorraine? She treats her with love, respect and nothing but care.
Lorraine is tested in her love, faith and patience. However, sometimes even the worst of situations can bring you what you truly want even when you don't realize it.
This book didn't seem like an "Easter" book, but it did speak to me in so many ways during this time of thinking of all Christ did for us. A great book of sacrificial love.
Book Description: Wayne Lambright who, crippled after a tragic accident, feels himself unworthy of her love; and Jake Beechy who, after having abandoned her to explore the English world, returns to renew their courtship.
