The Wonder of You By: Susan May Warren

Back of the Book

Mortified after her semester abroad is cut short, Amelia Christiansen returns to Deep Haven, certain she isn’t brave enough for the adventures she’s dreamed of. The last thing she expects is for the man who broke her heart to cross the Atlantic and beg forgiveness.

Heir to a European hotel dynasty, Roark St. John has trekked from one exotic locale to another, haunted by tragedy and the expectations that accompany his last name. Amelia is the first woman to give him a reason to stop running. He’ll do anything for a second chance―even contend with Amelia’s old flame, who is intent on sending Roark packing.

While one surprise after another leaves Amelia reeling, Roark’s continued presence only highlights the questions pursuing her. Like him, is she running from the life God has called her to? Could finding her new place mean leaving home behind?

My Thoughts

After the crazy end in the last book (Always on my Mind) I was wondering were Amelia's story would go and it seemed throughout the book, so did Amelia.  With past books involving all the Christiansen family and the progression of their lives, this book focuses mostly on Amelia and her struggles.  With just small glimpses into the rest of the family's lives.  I loved the family comradery when Roark shows up and how that evolves. I have come to expect a lot from a Susan May Warren books, and this one delivers.  With a wonderful story line and great scenes this is a must read.   

I was given this book free from Tyndale Publishing for my honest review.
