When Love Comes My Way by Lori Copeland

ISBN: 978-0-7369-3021-5
When Love Comes My Way is a Christian love story that keeps you turning the pages.  The story takes place in Michigan during the late 1800s.  The author gives us a glimpse of how lumberjacks lived in the old logging towns.  Reading this book gives you a better understanding for the courageous men who did that kind of life-threatening work.  You will enjoy the way this book describes an era of long ago while the reader can only imagine a 19th century way of life.  You can almost feel the bitter cold and smell the pine trees as the author introduces you to the main characters.

One of the main characters, Tess Wakefield, discovers she lost her memory after a horrible wagon accident on her way to sell her Timber Company.  She is the only heir to the profitable company, but her interests are back East in her new fashion business.  In the midst of losing her identity, she begins to lose her heart to the man that may know who she is and why she was headed to his town.

This man, Jake Lannigan, puts his interest first and conveniently allows Tess to believe she is the new school teacher the town has been desperately waiting for.  Jake secretly begins to see Tess as a very special person in his life and begins to feel badly about not being honest with everyone regarding Tess' real identity.  Tess settles into her new life well and eventually gains the respect of the townspeople and her unruly students.  Will God help these two main characters discover that through forgiveness and His guidance they can truly be happy?

This book is a wonderful story and would be a great addition to anyone's library. (reviewed by M.Hicks)
