Who I Am With You and a Giveaway

Robin Lee Hatcher is the author of over 75 novels and novellas with over five million copies of her books in print. She is known for her heartwarming and emotionally charged stories of faith, courage, and love. Robin is an ACFW Carol Award winner and an eight-time finalist and has won two RITA Awards and been a finalist eleven times. Her numerous other awards include the Christy Award, the HOLT Medallion, the National Reader’s Choice Award, and the Faith, Hope & Love Reader’s Choice Award. She is also the recipient of prestigious Lifetime Achievement Awards from both American Christian Fiction Writers and Romance Writers of America.
When not writing, she enjoys being with her family, spending time in the beautiful Idaho outdoors, Bible art journaling, reading books that make her cry, watching romantic movies, and decorative planning. A mother and grandmother, Robin and her husband make their home on the outskirts of Boise, sharing it with a demanding Papillon dog and a persnickety tuxedo cat.
For these two broken hearts, the first step toward love will be a huge leap of faith.
Jessica Mason isn’t looking for love when she meets Ridley Chesterfield. Instead she is still reeling from the tragic, unexpected loss of her husband and daughter—and awaiting the arrival of her unborn child. Harboring the secret of her husband’s betrayal, her pain is deeper than anyone knows.
Ridley Chesterfield is hiding out in Hope Springs, Idaho, avoiding a political scandal and the barrage of false media headlines that have tarnished his good name. The last thing Ridley wants is a relationship—but when fate leads Ridley to form a friendship with his reclusive and pregnant neighbor, he wonders if this small-town hideout might be more of a long-term destination. 
When Jessica begins to read her great-grandfather’s Bible, she finds a connection with a man she never knew. Somehow the verses he marked and the words he wrote in the margins open her heart to healing. And as Ridley and Jessica help each other forgive the people who have broken their hearts, they must decide if the past will define them or if they will choose to love again.
Who I Am with You weaves together a modern-day romance with Jessica’s great-grandfather’s story from the 1930s, reminding us that some truths can cross generations and that faith has the power to transform families forever.
Who I Am with You is the first book in Robin’s new “A Legacy of Faith” series.

My Thoughts:
I always enjoy Hatcher's books, but Who I Am With You may be my very favorite yet!  Jessica and Ridley's journey is so endearing because it is a picture of real life.  The romance in this one isn't sappy but two people who become quick friends and learn to trust each other.  In this first book of her new Legacy of Faith series, Hatcher begins the backstory of Jessica's great grandfather, Andrew Henning, and a Bible that was given to him by his father upon Andrew's college graduation in 1929.  This Bible has been passed on to Jessica and becomes a central point of Jessica's reconnection with her faith.  Ridley, who is in the middle of life circumstances that have challenged his faith as well, has chosen to step away from life in a sense.  The ending is a perfect picture of Romans 8:28; God working all things for His glory and our good.  Hatcher seamlessly weaves the past and the present in Who I Am With You.  I can't wait for book two, I Cross My Heart, due to release later this year.  Who will Jessica end up giving the bible too?
The story is beautiful and you shouldn't miss it!  Awesome start to a series that promises to be another homerun for Hatcher.
