About the Book
Stunned to learn he has an adult son, widower Harrison Mitchell’s eager to track him down and build a relationship. But when he uproots his life and moves to Natchez, Mississippi, he’s hit with another surprise: his new boss, Anise Armstrong, is his son’s adoptive mother. Now he must win her trust to prove he deserves to be a father and grandfather…and possibly a husband.
From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.
In My Opinion
In Embracing His Past, Christina Miller explores new ways in which families are formed. In order to get the whole scope of this Natchez, Mississippi crew, I highly recommend picking up Miller’s previous two books (Finding His Family and An Orphan’s Hope).
I thoroughly enjoyed how Miller took a couple of tropes and breathed new life into them. First, there is the adoption trope which also has an element of secret child. But instead of getting the viewpoint of the person adopted, we get to see what might go through the mind of the parent and the child is now an adult himself with children of his own. This is also a later-in-life romance with two people who have previously been married and come out of those relationships disillusioned.
The mobile clinic, the two dogs, and the Natchez matchmakers all round out a book about forgiving yourself and taking a chance on loving others.
