Mickelle Hansen never realized marriage could be so challenging. Her husband’s epilepsy has caused him to become cynical and verbally abusive, but with love in her heart and strength from her Heavenly Father, Mickelle is determined to make her marriage work. Then the worst happens. Can she ever pick up the shattered pieces of her life?

Meanwhile, Rebekka Massoni arrives in America to work for handsome widower Damon Wolfe, leaving all her hopes and dreams back in her beloved France. She has loved and idolized Marc Perrault since she was five years old, but he can offer only her friendship in return.

Can Rebekka forget Marc and learn to love another man? Both Damon and Samuel Bjornenburg, successful CEO of Corban International, hope to win a place in her heart, but Damon’s daughter doesn’t like Rebekka, and Samuel doesn’t share her faith. To make matters worse, Rebekka’s heart is still breaking over Marc. Suddenly she must make the most important decision of her entire life. Will it be the right one?

Join Mickelle and Rebekka as they search for love and self-discovery. This tender story of heartbreak, healing, and faith is one you will not soon forget.

The View:

I downloaded “This Time Forever” for free on my Kindle a few weeks ago and I started reading it only about a week back. I took my own sweet time with this one reading it during my lunch break or when I was waiting to unload my laundry and even when I reached home a few minutes earlier than my spouse and child.

The story is pretty straight-forward with real characters facing real life problems. The decisions they make as a result of the events they are thrown in are decisions that you and I would take as well; this makes the story so much more relatable. The religious aspect in the book was light and primarily helped drive the choices each of the lead characters made.

I liked Damon, Rebekka (with 2 k’s) and Mickelle. They were all distinctive in their own traits and played their roles elegantly. The romance triangle was primitive but was quickly solved with no major relationship hassles. The children in the book were ADORABLE. Belle’s fear of losing yet another Nanny and her brother’s crush on Rebekka was so cute. I had a smile every time Damon’s or Mickelle’s kids appeared in the plot. I didn’t care too much about Marc till he came all the way in search of his love. That was so darn huggable!!!

The writing was simple, clear and to the point but there were chapters that got way too long and boring; Honestly there were sections that I was itching to skip through. Rated a 3 on 5 for the honest writing, characters and events.
