Summary

Summary

For these two broken hearts, the first step toward love will be a huge leap of faith.

Jessica Mason isn't looking for love when she meets Ridley Chesterfield. Instead she is still reeling from the tragic, unexpected loss of her husband and daughter--and awaiting the arrival of her unborn child. Harboring the secret of her husband's betrayal, her pain is deeper than anyone knows.

Ridley Chesterfield is hiding out in Hope Springs, Idaho, avoiding a political scandal and the barrage of false media headlines that have tarnished his good name. The last thing Ridley wants is a relationship--but when fate leads Ridley to form a friendship with his reclusive and pregnant neighbor, he wonders if this small-town hideout might be more of a long-term destination.

When Jessica begins to read her great-grandfather's Bible, she finds a connection with a man she never knew. Somehow the verses he marked and the words he wrote in the margins open her heart to healing. And as Ridley and Jessica help each other forgive the people who have wronged them, they must decide if the past will define them or if they will choose to love again.

Who I Am With You weaves together a modern-day romance with Jessica's great-grandfather's story from the 1930s, reminding us that some truths can cross generations and that faith has the power to transform families forever.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Hatcher (You're Gonna Love Me) sweetly explores the ways hardship and unfaithfulness can lead to love through the healing powers of forgiveness. In Hope Springs, Idaho, Jessica Mason is pregnant and grieving the death of her husband and six-year-old daughter in a car accident the previous winter. Harboring the secret of her late husband's infidelity, Jessica shuts everyone out of her life and buries herself in the memories of her former life. When handsome political operative Ridley Chesterfield moves in to the empty house next door in order to lay low after falsely being accused of leaking information to an opposition campaign, Jessica begins to warm up to her new neighbor. Ridley, who spends his time painting and fixing up the house, cannot help but want to be around Jessica. As Ridley learns to have forgiveness for those who falsely accused him, Jessica begins forgiving her husband and growing closer to God by reading her great-grandfather's Bible and the notes he left there. As Jessica and Ridley fall in love, they both learn that true healing can only be found in forgiveness. Hatcher's moving novel is rich in healing and hope, and realistically portrays the tough introspection that sometimes comes with being hurt. (Dec.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
