“Love the Wounded” continues the story of Jake, Leigh, Mike Tim and Dylan whom we met in the first two books of this series. It seems all four of these young adults are still struggling with difficulties that life has brought their way. Tim is still trying to come to terms with losing his sister; Dylan will never let go of the anger and bitterness of his dad and sister being killed by a drunk driver; Leigh has just dumped Jake and decides to start dating Dylan within two weeks; and Mike struggles every day because of his dad’s drinking problem. But no one was expecting the accident that leaves Mike fighting for his life, all because of foolish jealously, and all because Leigh can’t decide which guy she likes the best, Dylan or Jake. What a dramatic ending to a wonderful series about five teenagers and their families who are struggling through life, miserable because of anger and bitterness! But the walls started to break down for all of them after the horrible accident that involved Jake, Dylan and Mike.
Lynn Dove has created a cast of teenage characters we grow to love over this three book series, and as I read “Love the Wounded” I couldn’t put the book down until the end because I couldn’t wait to find out what was happening next. I grew to love these five young people, and even though Dylan got on my nerves sometimes, he ended up finding a special place in my heart. I appreciate the way Lynn shows her readers how God loves us, and can heal the hurt and take away the anger and bitterness, no matter how deep it is. I encourage you to not only read this book yourself, but purchase it for your teenager too. It is a wonderful, good, clean book with twists and turns about issues on a young adult level that they will enjoy reading.
