Third in the popular Lewis Legacy Series, this novel brings back one of the most memorable characters from Awakening. Almost five years after the TeamWork missions camp in San Antonio where Sam Lewis collided with Lexa Clarke, Joshua Grant is now a changed man, a man redeemed. He's worked hard to put the past behind him. A mergers and acquisitions attorney in a prestigious Baton Rouge law firm, he pours his energies into his career, hurricane relief efforts, and numerous civic and charitable causes.
A near-fatal event in the life of a fellow TeamWork Missions volunteer prompts him to make some apologies, starting with his friend and mentor, Sam Lewis, Domestic Missions Director for TeamWork in Houston. Josh is still haunted by the memories of the San Antonio work camp where Sam threw him out as well as his final meeting with another TeamWork volunteer. When he also seeks her forgiveness, Josh gets the shock of his life. Could turning his deepest sin into his greatest blessing be God's answer for his hurting heart?
Rebekah Grant, Josh's twin sister, is torn between two men. Adam, a dashing British aristocrat, offers her a world of exotic travel, socializing with royalty, fabulous couture and the life of leisure. Then there's sweet Kevin, the strong, intelligent, faithful TeamWork member. Will the shy Louisiana lumber man ever take the step of faith to move their relationship to the next level? What Kevin lacks in terms of Adam's style and panache, he more than makes up for with heart-stirring kisses and soul-searching conversation. When Rebekah suspects Adam is planning to propose a second time, she knows it's time to make her decision. Juggling both suitors is wrong for so many reasons, but what's a girl to do if she wants to marry and have children in her lifetime?
When family tragedy strikes, Josh and Rebekah learn the true meaning and value of love, loyalty and what's most important in life. Leaning on the encouragement and support from Sam and Lexa Lewis and their TeamWork friends, both twins look to the Lord for His divine guidance. It's up to them to stake their claim on love before it slips beyond their reach, which means it's also time for a road trip from Louisiana to . . . the peace to be found in seeking and finding the sweetest desires of the heart.
Twin Hearts is book three of author JoAnn Durgin’s Lewis Legacy Series, and it made me want to read the rest of the series. Ms. Durgin’s skill in creating memorable characters shines once again with this cast.
Twins Josh and Rebekah Grant are both at turning points in their lives, and while their struggles differ, their faith buoys them through their emotional storms. The supporting cast, most present or past member of TeamWork, show their faith and compassion by their actions. But my favorite character has to be little Chloe, a heart-stealer from her first appearance.
Rebekah’s and Josh’s journeys to discovering God’s will for their lives captivated me from beginning to end. Twin Hearts earns five stars.
