Welcome back to Hickory Hollow! The Guardian is the 3rd book in this series by popular author, Beverly Lewis.
Jodi Winfield is looking for peace after losing her only sibling, Karen, to cancer six months earlier. No longer on speaking terms with the Lord and estranged from her fiance, she arrives in Hickory Hollow to house sit. When she comes across a lone child sleeping by the side of the road, Jodi's life is forever changed.
It has been some time since I last read one of Beverly Lewis' books. While reading The Guardian, I was reminded just how nice her stories are! Set in a simpler lifestyle, the story flows nicely as Jodi seeks to come to grips with why the Lord took her sister so soon.
I haven't read the previous books in this series, but that didn't serve as a disadvantage, since this novel does well as a stand alone story.
I received this through Netgalley.com for my honest opinion.
