A Hero’s Hope

Returning from active duty, Gunnery Sergeant Luke Barrett is shocked to learn he’s a father. Having just lost his mom, ten-year-old Caleb is reserved and wary—and Luke is simply overwhelmed. So when Tess Greenwood agrees to become Caleb’s nanny, it’s an answer to his prayers. Injured while working at an international mission in a war-torn country, Tess is in town to recuperate. The last thing she wants is to get too involved. But as she spends time with the handsome marine and his son, Tess comes to realize that caring for them may just be the cure to her own battered heart.

This is truly a beautiful story of love between a couple and their devotion to each other and God. Tess and Luke’s story begins with a tragic event that Tess struggles with physically, emotionally and spiritually. Being a marine, Luke understands what Tess is dealing with and being the type of man he is, Luke is there to see her through it, even if she doesn’t realize it. This story is heartwarming and beautifully written and I will be looking forward to reading more from Roz Dunbar.

This book gave me all the good feelings I needed in a book mixed with the right amount of oh no moments. Community and family dynamics at their most loving best and misguided worst. Cannot wait to see more from Roz Dunbar!
