Reviews - What do customers think about The Hand-Me-Down Family (Love Inspired Historical #28)?
Warm, poignant book will make you want to go back in time Oct 6, 2009
One of the first Steeple Hill historicals that I've read...or should I say completed. I enjoyed every chapter of it. The warmth and charm definitely rub off and I found myself smiling and crying throughout.
The story follows plucky heroine Callie Gray who is ever true to her faith as she embarks upon a marriage by proxy. Only problem? The husband she's never seen perishes a week before she arrives in the aptly named Sweetgum, TX. Instead of a readymade family, she's faced with grieving children and their newly arrived uncle Jack. Jack's not prepared for a family or settling down. He's made his career as an explosive expert working for the railroads. But the children need a father and a mother.
Callie is ready to step into the role as caretaker, but not a new marriage with Jack. And the last thing Jack wants is another hand-me-down from his older brother. But God works in mysterious ways and knits this family together with love and His purpose. Finely crafted and warmly written, the Hand-Me-Down Family is worth every penny.
