Softly and Tenderly

By Sara Evans with Rachel Hauck
Published by Thomas Nelson 

Maybe out there in the country she could catch her breath, learn to breathe again.
Happily married and owner of two successful boutiques, Jade longs to begin a family with her husband, Max. But when she discovers that Max has an illegitimate son—who he wants her to help raise—Jade’s life is turned upside down.
She flees to her childhood home, a rambling Iowa farmhouse, with enough room to breathe. There—while her mother’s health grows fragile, and the tug of her first love grows stronger—Jade begins to question everything she thought she knew about family, love, and motherhood. In the wide-open landscape, Jade begins to see a future that doesn’t rest on the power of her past but in the goodness of God's tender mercies.
My Review:
This was the first time I had ever read a book by these authors. The story line was okay but it lack in its writing style.While the book is published by a Christian publishers there isn't much of a spiritual influence given in this book. This is the 2nd story in a series. I didn't read the first book but might be interested in reading the next to find out what happens with the characters, that is if I still  remember the book and author by then.
