About the Book
Tyler Murphy had his life all planned out: finish college, go back to Sugar Pine as his dad’s able-bodied business partner, and most importantly, marry Rebecca Colson. But a fall from a roof leaves him less than able-bodied, and the pain he suffers as a result goes beyond the physical. Wrestling with his new disability seems manageable only by way of the pharmacy. Which is fine…until the refills run out and he’s denied a new prescription.
Rebecca Colson can’t wait for the day she’ll finally become Mrs. Rebecca Murphy. Tyler’s accident and resulting amputation are traumatic hurdles on the road to marital bliss but nothing they can’t overcome together—until Rebecca stumbles onto Tyler’s secret and approaches his family for help. Suddenly, the love of her life turns cold. In his eyes, her betrayal is unforgivable, and just like that, their hopes and dreams disintegrate.
Becca finds herself facing a future she doesn’t recognize—one where each step forward is a step away from the future she’d planned with Tyler. When a recovered Tyler finally seeks her out, he’s not sure he deserves another chance with her—not after the way he broke her heart. Becca is equally uncertain that Tyler has room in his new, very different life, for her. Is it too late to restore their relationship, or will their stubborn love forge a new path for a future together?

In My Opinion
The Murphy family returns, and this time, one of the middles is in the spotlight. Jennifer Rodewald never fails to bring an emotionally wrenching and compelling story filled with messages of faith and healing to the page.
Tyler has his future planned out—graduate from college, work with his dad, and marry the girl he loves. An accident and addiction change all of that. Rodewald handles Tyler’s addiction to pain killers with truth but also compassion. Readers see the change in Tyler—the excuses, the ugliness of attitude, the pushing people away—but also the pain and disillusion his injury brings him. And the heartbreak.
And then comes the healing. Not only of Tyler’s body but of his soul as he leans into God. Becca is also healing as she charts a new course for her future.
There was so much to love about this book, from Lauren and Becca’s friendship to little Fiona to the romance. But the absolute best, most beautiful part of this book was Tyler’s changed outlook and response to difficulties. As he learns to praise God in gratitude, this faith grows, he becomes an inspiration to others and a better man than he was before his accident. Stubborn Love is a testament to how God can take what we view as the worst event in our lives and turn it into the greatest gift He gives us because it brings us closer to Him.
