Welcome to my review of Jill Weatherholt’s July release, A Dream of Family. Featuring a bookstore and a precious little girl, this uplifting story is filled with special moments.
ABOUT THE A DREAM OF FAMILY
From the minute Molly Morgan saw sad-eyed little Grace, she longed to give her a happy home. But Molly’s struggling bookstore is endangering her adoption chances. Outgoing entrepreneur Derek McKinney has a puppy Grace adores–and a plan to save Molly’s business. But can he and Molly put their troubled past behind them in time to make a family for a lifetime?
MY REVIEW OF A DREAM OF FAMILY
With its warmth and compassion, A Dream of Family refreshes the heart. A perfect book for summer reading!
Whispering Slopes is a delightful town to visit for a bit of relaxing and to get a dose of pure small town friendliness. With the addition of a sweet romance and an even sweeter little girl, this story left me with sighs of happy contentment.
In the past, Molly Morgan had many dreams crushed, and now, just as her heart’s desire of having a family is within reach, she faces losing both her independent bookstore and precious little Grace, the foster child she hopes to adopted.
Successful Derek McKinney opens a branch of his thriving coffee shop business adjacent to Molly’s store. Operating next door to the woman whose wedding day he ruined two years earlier will be a challenge, but his promise to help Molly succeed will also further his plans…..in more ways than either of them expect.
Reading this story of hope….when life is hard and discouraging….is warmly comforting. The characters are touching as they face struggles, but persevere to overcome past situations and learn to forgive. Molly’s feelings of doubt about herself make her believable. And Derek is a great hero, willing to help Molly achieve her dreams. I love small town romance stories where the community cheers for the couple to fall in love and folks offer homestyle wisdom. If you’re looking for a feel-good romance, I highly recommend A Dream of Family!
Favorite quotes: “Don’t ever compare yourself to others. This is your journey, and yours alone. Comparing it with others’ will steal your joy quicker than anything.”
She had to continue to cling to her faith and believe in the impossible—in promises.
