It was a treat to immerse myself in Arcadia Valley recently with Comer’s excellent and thought-provoking writing. This is the second novel in the Garden Grown Romance series, though it could be read on its own as well.
I particularly enjoyed that Comer took on the challenge of writing about divorce and remarriage from a Christian viewpoint. Due to my own experiences, I wanted so much to walk through Alaina and Cameron’s growing relationship and their struggle with what an imperfect background means for a couple striving to do life God’s way. It was well-handled as a serious issue not to be glossed over, and felt very real but not too heavy a load for the plot to carry.
Meanwhile, there were Cameron’s very active twin boys. I loved them so much! Like my own boys, they came across as full of energy, needing to be valued by the adults around them, and capable of great love in return. Comer always has the ability to make me love the children in her stories!
This book is definitely a great read you shouldn’t miss. You can also check out more of Arcadia Valley with other authors writing in this great setting – I’ve started Elizabeth Maddrey’s series and it’s a good one too!
