Star Youngblood has always been a fighter–a necessity after her mother married a monster of a man. Now, she’s finally on the path to the stable life she’s always wanted. Her employer, Priscilla Kelly, is a sweet woman ravaged by rheumatoid arthritis, and Star will do anything to help her. Even if that means going toe to toe with Mrs. Kelly’s neglectful son.
After being betrayed on the mission field and devastated by the tragic death of his father, Paul Kelly gave up on God. He lives life on his own terms, biding his time as a corporate pilot until he can save enough money to begin his own flight school closer to home. His mother is all he has left, and he wants to be near her. He just didn’t expect her health to decline so quickly. When he discovers his mother has taken in a stray—a woman he’s not at all sure can be trusted—his protective instincts kick into high gear. Paul’s handled a lot of turbulence, but he’s never gone up against a force like Star.
As Paul and Star strive to protect his mother in their own ways, they soon find their own hearts are at the greatest risk.
My thoughts: I have enjoyed each of Janet's stories that I have read, though this one has a special place in my heart since she writes about Ireland with this story, a place that stole my heart last year. I loved getting to know Star better, a character who showed up in The Art of Rivers. Even though Paul has dubbed her as a stray, she is flourishing after finding hope in Jesus Christ. I love the adventure she goes on, and think that Janet had a little too much fun writing about some of the mishaps that happen along the way. This story has some hilarious moments, as well as a beautiful deeper message.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Just Read Tours. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.

This story can be read as a stand alone, though I recommend reading the whole series!
