Book Review: From This Day Forward


From This Day Forward by Irene Hannon (Heartland Homecoming) Love Inspired 419 - Nov 07

I really enjoyed this book. I'm always sad when I hear a couple is splitting up after years of marriage whether they have children or not. In this book, Sam and Cara Martin are childless which seems to be a blessing to their hectic lives especially when they separate. The story starts about a year after their separation.

Cara has suffered a traumatic experience that triggers extreme panic attacks. After an exhausting month with no sleep where she huddles in her home refusing to go anywhere, she accepts an invitation from her husband for refuge. But she makes it clear that one betrayal was enough. She'll never trust him again.

Sam was an esteemed surgeon when he realized he was human. A patient's spouse took offense and ended his career as he knew it. And he took it out on Cara. Her leaving was his wake up call. Unable to operate, he moved to small town America and became a family practitioner. He's not very good at it and he doesn't know why.

Although he doesn't want to benefit from Cara's trauma, he still loves his wife and he'll do anything to get her back.
