Willow Tree Hearts (Whispering Willow Book 1) by Delia Latham and Elle H. Raye is a fast-paced romance that takes you through the heartache of loss and provides hope for a happier future. When Willow Linn-Reed, a widow of two years, returns home after her father’s death, she finds the family estate in financial trouble. She is determined to find a way to save her family’s legacy, Linn’s Eden, but she will need God’s help to get it done. While sitting under the willow tree after which she was named, a softly whispered idea begins to form. Caleb Waters is a city boy seeking rest and rejuvenation in a quiet setting away from the chaos of his life. Coming to Linn’s Eden, he finds more than he could have imagined. A place for rest and quiet offers possibilities he wasn’t even looking for. A friendship develops between Willow and Caleb. Neither is looking for romance, but should it transpire, each will need to break ties with the past if they hope to move forward together. Can a romance blossom or has that season passed?
Delia Latham and Elle H. Raye take their readers on a journey through loss, disappointment, grief, hope, and restoration, while weaving a charming story that can support future exploration. Willow Tree Hearts is designed to draw the reader in, not only to this story but to future installments, and in this, it succeeds. The authors have created characters and situations that develop quickly throughout the story. The plot allows for forthcoming adventures to be told with continuity. This series of books will delight readers who enjoy a tender romance with godly values and characters who demonstrate these qualities. Willow’s journey of starting over will keep you coming back for more. A well-written and enjoyable read. I look forward to the other books in the series.
