Worthy Book Review


 
I have another book to share with you called Worthy written by Catherine Ryan Hyde that is a romance/drama book that I think you will really enjoy reading.
 
Synopsis:
They might’ve been a family. 
Virginia finally had the chance to explore a relationship with Aaron when he asked her on a date. She had been waiting, hoping that the widower and his young son, Buddy, would welcome her into their lives. But a terrible tragedy strikes on the night of their first kiss, crushing their hopes for a future together. 
Nineteen years later, Virginia is engaged, though she has not forgotten Aaron or Buddy. When her dog goes missing and it comes to light that her fianc√© set him loose, a distraught Virginia breaks off the engagement and is alone once again. A shy young man has found the missing pet, and although he’s bonded with the animal, he answers his conscience and returns the dog.  
Before long, Virginia and the young man discover a connection from their pasts that will help them let go of painful memories and change their lives forever. 
My Thoughts:
 
This book is definitely filled with it's share of tragedy and there will be plenty of events that will break your heart, but it also has some really great moments that will have you smiling. This is a really good story about how life works sometimes and although it's not fair, it's the way things work out sometimes.
 
If you just continue to be who you really are, I believe good things will come in time. As the old saying goes, "God's time is different than our time" and that is just about true. We hardly ever get things the exact moment that we want them, but they eventually work their way around and once we have what we truly need, it's like the time factor melts away and we really don't remember waiting all that long.
 
Buddy and Virginia were meant to be together but life interrupted the perfect moment for them to be a family, but in some ways, I guess it was really meant for them to find each other later in life when their need was much greater than all those years ago.
 
This book is a heartwarming story of how people can find their way back to a happier time if we just allow it to happen. I bet some of you might even cry a tear or two while reading this book, I know I did!
 
Happy Reading!
