Quirky Fiona McGrath loves her job as a Child Life Specialist at a Dunedin, Florida hospital. As a former foster child, she understands trauma and wants to ensure no child ever faces the same kind of fears she once did. But are fears truly in the past?
Gabe Cavenaugh’s life is right on schedule. As the youngest assistant Chief Financial Officer in the hospital’s history, he has much to prove, but he’s confident he can do anything he’s asked. After all, he’s secure in his faith and has the constant support of his family.
When Gabe is directed to make cuts in order to balance the hospital’s budget, his search leads him to the Child Life Program and to Fiona. How can this crazy, hat-wearing woman, who rides around on a sparkly scooter possibly be a vital member of the medical team?
As Fiona works to persuade Gabe about her job’s necessity, he begins to see there’s more to her and her work with young patients than wacky clothes.
But will she be enough to save her program? And could she possibly be enough for a man like Gabe?
I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
I have really been enjoying the Mosaic Collection!
As with the other stories, More than Enough is very touching with a strong spiritual message.
Though viewed from both Gabe and Fiona’s perspectives, this is mostly Fiona’s story. I loved her tender heart and desire to save as many children from the kind of suffering she had experienced herself. The seemingly frivolous, playful, woman who appeared to do nothing more than entertain the children in the hospital and attempt to cheer them up – which alone is a good thing – turned out to be a woman of substance playing a critical role in the workings of the hospital. It was so interesting to learn about what the role of a Child Life Specialist entails.
Fiona’s struggle with being “enough” was captured so well. To an outside observer, it was so clear that she was an amazing woman and yet she had so much trouble accepting that. Accepting the truth that she didn’t have to be “enough”. God does not love us based on our performance. He is more than enough.
Author Lorna Seilstad packed so much information into this story without making it feel like it! As Gabe took Fiona on a day-long date to Tarpon Springs, I was amazed to see this quaint town through their eyes. I’m embarrassed to say that I have been there twice and had no idea of what all is there! I feel like I need to go again and really experience it – maybe with this book as my guide.
Readers who enjoy stories that are full of rich, spiritual content and have a touch of romance will enjoy this lovely story.
