THEN CAME YOU
A leather-bound journal.
A single father.
A woman in pursuit of freedom.
Garner Bradford, heir to the troubled Bradford Shipping empire, doesn't know much about babies. But he's going to have to learn fast because he's just become a single father to his newborn daughter. As he confesses through his journal entries, he's not entirely sure how to keep a newborn alive, whether or not he'll ever patch together his shattered heart, or how to forgive himself for his mistakes.
Career girl Kathleen Burke is wholly uninterested in settling down. She has big dreams, and none of them include Garner and his small hometown in Washington State. Yet she can't seem to get her handsome boss out of her head or her heart. There's something extraordinarily tempting about his beautifully sad green eyes...
Told through journal entries, phone conversations, and letters, Then Came You is a unique, heart-stirring romance novella by acclaimed author Becky Wade.
A stunning novella that introduces Becky Wade's Bradford Sisters series. It's been offered free on Kindle off and on since it's release in March but if you are looking for a paperback copy to add to your keeper shelf along with the rest of the series (as the books release) read on!
I love the format of this story -- it's told through letters, phone messages, notes and journaling as well as some hysterically funny telephone conversations between Kathleen and her best friend, Rose. There's angst and drama along with splashes of humour as Garner and Kathleen navigate their complicated lives.
Garner, a survivor of tragedies and struggling single dad who has grown staid and serious before his time. And exuberant Kathleen, so busy searching for freedom she doesn't realize it's already within her grasp. And then there are gems of spiritual truth like this:
"God's grace is like a rushing river. It's far more powerful than I am. My sins don't stand a chance against it." (p. 138)
The perfect start to what is already proving to be an incredible series. (True to You, May 2017 and Falling for You, May 2018)
