ABOUT THE BOOK
A YOUNG WOMAN determined to honor her commitment...
AN INJURED SOLDIER convinced life is no longer worth living...
A RETIRED DOCTOR certain it's too late to be forgiven...
Jane Morrow has a dilemma. She's engaged to Seth Ballantine, a member of the National Guard's 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team, and he's returned from Iraq severely wounded. Jane hasn't seen him for nearly a year, and with trepidation, she heads to the VA hospital in Asheville, North Carolina, where he is being treated.
Seth isn't happy to see her. He'd asked her not to come. He wants to end the relationship. But Jane loves him, and despite his injury, she's determined to convince him that they can have a life together. Her faith has never been strong, yet she hopes God will answer her prayers and tell her what to do.
Beautifully written, Travelers Rest takes readers on a journey through pain and tragedy to a place of hope and redemption.

I loved this book. It is well written and the character's pop off the page. One of my favorite quotes from the book is this one. "Life's gearshift's got no reverse, so you have to just keep moving forward." So very true. I admired how Jane was determined to do the right thing no matter what. I felt awful for Seth and what he was going through. I support our military even though nobody is perfect and there are issues everywhere. My Dad is in the Air National Guard and I have several extended family members serving our Country so this book really touched me. The author's writing was beautiful and the plot intense but good. Highly Recommended! :)
