Book Description: Jules broke off her wedding to Cruz practically at the altar. Not just once, but twice. Now the man Jules loves best can't stand the sight of her. Only for Pop could Jules have made such a sacrifice. And now Pop is gone, leaving Jules with his struggling Washington State potato farm; with a sister excluded from his will; and with a heart wounded by the sacrifice she has made on behalf of her father. It looks like strengthening her relationship with her sister and improving the prospects of the Blue Bayou farm will be Jules' chief concerns. But when cancer takes the life of her best friend, Jules finds herself caring for her friend's two small children as well as the Blue Bayou. A drought-stricken farm. A promise to a dead friend and two needy little lives. And disturbing memories stirring up a growing relationship with her sister. How can one woman handle it all? The answer lies with a God who holds the keys to yesterday, today, and tomorrow---and to the heart of the one man whom Jules could ever love.
My Review: This is an interesting read about struggles and inner healing.
Jules, whom you'll either love or hate, is struggling with her idea of life.
Cruz, a patience potato farmer, seems to really love Jules. He has asked her to marry him twice! Jules seems rather uncertain about many things in life and she "shys" away from marriage like a skittish colt.
Jules finds herself in a promise to Cruz's sister, her best friend, that if the cancer takes her life, Jules will take care of her two small children. Jules loves the children and agrees. Then Jules' estranged sister, Crystal, decides to come back home...no wonder Jules feels that marriage should be on the back burner, she needs to get her own life in order before marrying. Crystal reveals a family secret to Jules.
Cruz leaves town...he finds the perfect way to grow a potato!
Alot of emotions in this read! Human flaws, love for family, love for God and trying to figure.it.all.out.
This is a great read!
