From bestselling author Lori Copeland, When Love Comes My Way is a love story about redemption, forgiveness, and renewed spiritual awakenings set against the backdrop of scenic Upper Peninsula, Michigan, in the days when pine was king.
Michigan, 1873—As Tess Wakefield wakes from a frightening wagon accident, she discovers she has lost her memories. In her recovery, she loses her heart as well to handsome lumberjack Jake Lannigan. It’s not a two-way street, though. Jake thinks he knows exactly who she is—the spoiled Wakefield Timber heir—but he believes the accident provides the means to show her that she has a responsibility to replant the trees and not to merely invest her inheritance opening another of her silly millinery shops.
Then he slowly he begins to fall in love with her. Jake wants to tell Tess the truth, but before he can her true identity is uncovered, and then both of them find the emotional stakes too high. Will God intervene and show this headstrong couple that only He in His wisdom could have paired them together?
Cafe Lily's Review:
This book was very interesting and I enjoyed it a great deal. I liked that the author spent time visiting old logging towns in Michigan to make the story that much more authentic.
Tess Wakefield is a “spoiled rich girl” who finds herself a victim of amnesia after a horrible accident occurs, while she’s on her way to sell her grandfather’s timber business.
Jake Lannigan, the timber boss who already harbors some ill well against Tess, becomes involved in a deceitful plan that takes advantage of Tess’s memory loss.
I enjoyed the historical background of the story and also the way Tess discovers things about herself that she might not have otherwise known, apart from the accident. There’s a little something for every reader in this book from romance and old fashioned values, to deception, lies, and ill will.
I really enjoy Lori's books and this one is no different. Highly recommended and perfect for gift giving!
