She’s not home for keeps
Unless he proves first love is forever
Bluestone River is a minefield of memories for Mike Abbot—all involving Ruby Driscoll. Twenty years after scandal divided them, they’re both back in their hometown. Ruby’s visit is strictly temporary. But as she uses her trauma expertise to help his vulnerable son, Mike faces what his heart has always known. Ruby’s still his one and only. This time, can he convince her to stay?
In My Opinion
A homecoming to a dying town, first loves reunited, and a precious little boy make Virginia McCullough’s A Family for Jason a book you don’t want to miss.
Ruby has returned to Bluestone River to care for her best friend. Painful memories surround her as much as the picturesque Illinois countryside. Tragedy and scandal forced her to flee years ago. The last person she expects to run into is the man who experienced the same loss and shock she did on that same night.
McCullough introduces readers to Bluestone River’s history (when the town was in it’s prime) and current demise right alongside some of the townsfolk who I hope will be appearing in future books. I got swept away in the forests, river, and lake surrounding Bluestone River. Plus, I want to go take pictures at that covered bridge!
All of this while Ruby and Mike try to find their way back to each other and let go of the past that, as teenagers, they had no control over but have paid for.
Precious little Jason whose silence screams his need for love and security burrowed right into my heart. Seriously, the ending of this book is utter perfection!
