After serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan, First Lieutenant Matthew Henry Martin, returns to Meadowvale, his beloved hometown nestled in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Wounded in a roadside IED attack that killed two of his comrades, Matt’s devastating leg injury ended his military aspirations. At 25, he’s unemployed and facing a move back into his childhood home. Surely God has a higher purpose and plan for his future?
Lesley Ann Randall is a woman on a deeply personal mission. A small Virginia town is the last place her older sister, First Lieutenant Faith Randall, was spotted. Could a sleek red Mercedes hold the clue to Faith's whereabouts? When Lesley speeds into Meadowvale, she immediately captures the attention of the sheriff, the pastor, and a handsome war veteran with secrets of his own.
When these two join forces, will they discover something greater than they could ever have imagined?
Romance, suspense, family bonds, and love of country—what more could a reader want? Thee Will I Honor delivers it all and does so beautifully.
When Matt goes home to Meadowvale, he encounters plenty of welcome and at least as much match-making. While he’s not opposed to marriage, he cannot consider a serious relationship until he is gainfully employed. And that’s not happening. But from his first glimpse of Lesley, Matt is intrigued. As they get to know one another, the mystery of her appearance in town sparks even more interest. How did she end up in his small town? And what is she hiding?
As I devoured this story, another story came to mind—the Biblical story of Esther. Why? Because as this faith-filled tale unfolds, we discover God’s hand in the lives of our hero and heroine, “for such a time as this.”
I love Thee Will I Honor and award it five stars. Highly recommended!
