Does following her passion mean losing her way?

Marine Ben Corallis is an expert at facing death, but nothing comes close to the terror that grounds him when his wife is killed in a car accident the day he returns from duty. He’s left to raise an infant, a toddler and a ten-year-old girl who hasn’t uttered a word since her mother’s death.

It’s hard not to care for the widowed marine with three young children. Yet he’s still grieving, too burdened with guilt to fall in love again. And Hope Alwanga’s future as a doctor awaits her on the other side of the world, in Nairobi. If two such opposites can’t agree on a common country, how can they ever create a safe place to call home?

My Review:
Grief is a powerful thing.
Our grief can cause us to close up and shut out the world…or our grief can spur us onto greater things.
For Marine Ben Corallis, the passing of his wife has turned his world upside down. He’s not ready to deal with the aftermath of this devastation.
And he’s especially not ready to fall in love again, but Hope Alwanga isn’t helping his resolve. She’s there to lend a helping hand with the children, who are each in dealing with the loss of their mother in different ways.
The book includes journal entries that lend a greater depth to the story.
I felt immediate empathy for this family and their pain. The author does a fabulous job immersing readers into the story and creating powerful scenes throughout.
If you love stories of love and loss and second chances…don’t miss After The Silence.

He wants to take her child out of Africa…

The Busara elephant research and rescue camp on Kenya’s Serengeti is Anna Bekker’s life’s work. And it’s the last place she thought she’d run into Dr. Jackson Harper. As soon as he sets eyes on her four-year-old, Pippa, Anna knows he’ll never leave…without his daughter.

Furious doesn’t begin to describe how Jack feels. How could Anna keep this from him? He has to get his child back to the States. Yet as angry as he is with Anna, they still have a bond. But can it endure, despite the ocean–and the little girl–between them?
