A young widow is tempted to love again after her heartbreaking loss in this new Madison River Romance.

Nicknamed America's rock-and-roll pastor, Shane Olson arrives in Montana after a viral video destroys his marriage, his ministry, and his reputation. Working side by side on the banks of the Madison River, he and Ryann get a second chance at love. But not everyone wants to see their happily ever after.

What a powerful story of redemption!

When Shane’s world fell apart, he thought God had turned His back on him and he, therefore, stopped having anything to do with God. Yet in His patient, loving manner, the Good Shepherd didn’t let His sheep stray too far from the fold before He brought him back in. I loved the way Shane began to see that when we fall, God is there to pick us up and make us stronger as we realize our utter dependence on Him.

The romance between Shane and Ryann was very sweet, especially as each of them had been broken in their past and needed patience and healing. Poor Ryann needed a man who wouldn’t run away when things got tough – as other men in her life had.

There are some serious subject matters dealt with here. Assault, suicide, and alcoholism. Each is handled sensitively with no excessive details given. Readers who need to steer clear of these topics should beware.

In addition, corruption and blackmail also played a part, though I’ll let you discover how. This made for slightly uncomfortable reading – I was squirming at the thought of no place to go, no one to help, and the lives destroyed due to the corruption in authority – how frightening that would be!

If you enjoy your romance with a more serious edge, Wildflower Road is a well-written story that shows the darkness in man – to emphasize the light!
