cute

this was a cute little life lesson. at first, I wasn't sure where the story was going, what the point was, but it became clear right at the end. I haven't listened to or read the story that goes before this (the producers bride I believe) so I'm sure that would have help. but for a short little story, it was fine

Fun visit!

You always wonder what happens to a couple after we finish the book. This novella gives us a peek at Justin and Ava 5 years later. After experiencing debilitating pain, we see how faith, love and good advice helps to find the cause and how to deal with it. Add in their adorable daughter and this extended epilogue is a winner. I loved it! Loranna Hoopes narrates it with care and love, emanating it's true blessings.
