Max Reynolds wants one thing—to find the family of the father he never knew, the father who didn't want him. But Max’s goal is cast aside when he is diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. And worse yet, his oncology nurse is meddlesome Heather Watson—the woman who destroyed his hope of marrying the woman he loved. Heather finds a challenge in guiding her friend’s neglectful ex-boyfriend through his fight against cancer.

To their surprise, romantic sparks fly between them. But Max faces a critical health decision, and Heather must meddle one last time, risking her heart on a long shot chance to give Max a future, with or without her. Will he win his battle with cancer only to lose a chance at love?

A Love to Call Mine is a tender story that deals with some serious issues.  Max had quite a journey of learning to trust God through cancer, learning to forgive, learning to allow others to help him, and to let them see into his heart.

Despite the serious nature of the book, the overall tone was mostly hopeful (it wouldn’t have been realistic to not have the characters experience some doubt!)  While there was a bit of discussion of cancer treatment, chemo effects, and other medical things, they were mostly just mentions and not too much for this wimp to handle.  In fact, the author did a great job of handling this subject with great sensitivity and tact.
