Can they keep their friendship pure when their hearts long for more?
McKenna Nichols, a young wife abandoned by her husband in favor of his work, is left alone to raise their autistic child. She promised to love him until death parted them. But when circumstances drive a wedge into their marriage and Dane chooses to escape what life has dealt them, how long can she be strong? Can she remain faithful to her marriage vows when tempted by the friendship of an unlikely stranger?
Rudy Taylor, who senses McKenna’s loneliness and understands the difficulty of raising her daughter, struggles to keep his concern for the young woman biblical. Will McKenna’s faith in God and Rudy’s commitment to his Lord be enough to keep their relationship simple until McKenna’s husband one day returns?
IN MY OPINION
When I read the synopsis of this book, I wondered how the author was going to pull it off. A married woman who hasn’t seen her husband in months and a hero who isn’t that husband?
Y’all, Patricia Lee managed to not only surprise me but did so without making any one of the people involved the bad guy (or gal). Perhaps that’s because, at its heart, this book is about the love between friends and the sacrifices made for those you care about.
I felt McKenna’s loneliness and frustration as a single parent raising a child with autism. Lee puts the readers in the situation as they experience the challenges and need for answers right alongside McKenna.
Rudy and his mother’s experiences with autism make them such great resources and support for McKenna and Sydney. And just like Rudy, I couldn’t help but fall in love with this sweet little girl.
An Anchor On Her Heart yanked on my heartstrings while leaving me content with the way everything worked out.
