A LOVE LIKE OURS
Fiction Series, Porter Family #3
Paperback, 368 Pages
May 2015 by Bethany House
Former Marine Jake Porter has far deeper scars than the one that marks his face. He struggles with symptoms of PTSD, lives a solitary life, and avoids relationships.
When Lyndie James, Jake’s childhood best friend, lands back in Holley, Texas, Jake cautiously hires her to exercise his Thoroughbreds. Lyndie is tender-hearted, fiercely determined, and afraid of nothing, just like she was as a child. Jake pairs her with Silver Leaf, a horse full of promise but lacking in results, hoping she can solve the mystery of the stallion’s reluctance to run.
Though Jake and Lyndie have grown into very different adults, the bond that existed during their childhood still ties them together. Against Jake’s will, Lyndie’s sparkling, optimistic personality begins to tear down the walls he’s built around his heart. A glimmer of the hope he’d thought he’d lost returns, but fears and regrets still plague him. Will Jake ever be able to love Lyndie like she deserves, or is his heart too shattered to mend?
I just LOVE this series so much!
Though A Love Like Ours can be read and enjoyed as a standalone, I highly recommend getting the first two books as well….they are wonderful!
Becky tackles some deep issues in the latest installment in her series, though her style is always lighthearted and romantic.
PTSD is something a lot of familes are dealing with today and I got an inside look at this through the characters. The author handled this topic with truth and class.
I have come to love this fiction family like my own and feel like I am part of their story as well.
You will love this heartwarming series!
