Moving to Seattle from LA just might be the best thing Shelly Graham has done in a long time. Even though her move back home to her parents seems to be the worse thing that could happen at the time, it brings bake memories of growing up with her best friend, Jonathan. After decided that she would like to re-connect with the only man who ever held her heart, circumstances that could only have been brought about by God send Shelly and her sister to Europe, where they learn that Jonathan now lives and works. Thinking that they will have a second chance, Shelly builds all kinds of dreams about their future together only to find that he is engaged to a woman he works with. When her world falls apart is when God can truly work with Shelly.
I have to admit, I was a bit put off at the beginning by how perfect Shelly comes across, since I don't find seemingly perfect characters to be ones that I can relate too. It got better as the story went on, since Shelly learns that her world will not always go how she thinks it should. I did like the rest of the characters and Shelly's journey to a deeper relationship with God. I also enjoy that the story is brought around to Glenbrooke, a place where many fictional friends live.:D
Received from Waterbrook Multnomah for my honest review.
