Jennifer : an O'Malley Love Story


It's a summer of change for Jennifer O'Malley.

The busy physician has a pediatrics practice in Dallas, Texas, and meeting and falling in love with surgeon Tom Peterson is adding a rich layer to her life. She's sorting out how to introduce Tom to her family--she's the youngest of seven--and thinking about marriage.

She's falling in love with Jesus too, and knows God is good. But that faith is about to be tested, and in a way she didn't expect. The results will soon transform her entire family.

My Review:

 Such a bittersweet, beautiful love story! I was in tears through most of it because I 'know' the O'Malleys and I knew where Jennifer's journey would lead. Dee Henderson certainly knows how to develop a romance into a nurturing, soul-satisfying read.

Tom Peterson is a worthy hero and I get goosebumps just thinking about what he started by sharing Christ with Jennifer. Over the course of six books  in the O'Malley series we are blessed to see the fruits of that first witness made by Tom as one by one each sibling comes into the fold.

If you are an O'Malley fan, you need to read this book to complete the series...with a tissue warning alert. If you haven't read any of the previous books...helllloooo, what are you waiting for?! I'm not sure when this book would best be read -- as the first or the last. Either way though, it must be read!
