About the Book:
Twenty years ago the town bad boy, Cam Murphy, left Eternity Springs in handcuffs, riding in the back of a sheriff’s van . . . and breaking young Sarah Reese’s heart. The defiant teenager vowed never to return.
In Australia, Cam makes a new beginning. He builds a successful business and suffers few regrets until Sarah—and their daughter—walk into his life, and then immediately run away. Realizing it’s time to right yesterday’s wrongs, he follows Sarah home to Colorado—and turns her world upside down.
Cam wants to know his daughter. He needs to prove to Sarah, the town, and himself that he’s changed. Will the residents of Eternity Springs offer forgiveness—and will Sarah have the courage to trust this man who is asking for a second chance?
This is no literary classic but was a fun romantic read. As the fourth book set in this small Colorado town, it contains a lot of characters who seem to have little use in this book, but who were main characters in prior or future books. While I have read one of the earlier books, at first I had a hard time keeping track of all the peripheral characters. However Cam and Sarah's story stands on its own. It has pretty much the expected bumps in the road as well as the expected happy ending.
The main sub-plot dealt with Sarah's mother who suffers from Alzheimer's disease and Sarah's efforts to care for her at home for as long as possible.
I purchased this book with a bookstore gift card. Grade: B.
