Love Without End by Robin Lee Hatcher

Book Description: Chet and Kimberly have both failed when it comes to love. Will they risk their hearts to love again?

Chet Leonard's life was forever changed when his seventeen year old son died and then, soon after, his wife walked out on their family. Over two years later, all he wants to do is hold onto his horse ranch and raise his remaining sons to be honorable men.

Kimberly Welch, widowed mother of Tara, a rebellious fifteen-year-old, has reached the end of her finances and nearly the end of her rope. She and Tara come to King's Meadow to try to piece their lives back together again. Kimberly has no intention of become involved with the residents of this remote mountain community and certainly not with any man.

When 84-year-old Anna McKenna returns to King's Meadow and to the Leonard ranch, she becomes an agent of change and healing for the two hurting families. With her help, Kimberly and Chet's families at last discover a love without end.

My Review: This was such a sweet story of love and hope. As an added bonus, the author included a story within a story! (I love when authors do that!). Not only do we get to follow the lives and romance between Chet and Kimberly and their families, but we also get to learn more about Nana Anna. Anna's story definitely kept me interested when I felt Chet and Kimberly's story was moving a bit slow. 

Kimberly and Chet are both adults from a broken family. Kimberly is a widow with a teenage girl. Chet is a divorcee with two teenage sons. Their lives couldn't be more different. However, as they begin to work together, the attraction becomes palpable. It was interesting to watch both Chet and Kimberly get over their past to embrace the future God had for them.

The message of the story was clear. God loves us with "a love without end." Once we embrace that love, it's easy for us to portray that into our own lives. In fact, that's what God wants. He wants us to surrender to Him and His will for our lives. Watching Kimberly learn to master her fear of horses was the author's way of portraying her getting over her fear and surrendering to God. 

Overall, this was a sweet story of "a love without end." (pun intended!)

  1. Sounds like a good read. I have read many of Robin Hatcher's books and enjoy her writing style. She has used the story within a story technique in other books quite successfully.

    1. Robin's books have been hit or miss for me. I really enjoy some of them and then others don't catch and hold my interest. I do think she is a good author, though, and will continue to read her books!
