ABOUT THE BOOK
A YOUNG WOMAN determined to honor her commitment…
AN INJURED SOLDIER convinced life is no longer worth living…
A RETIRED DOCTOR certain it’s too late to be forgiven…
Jane Morrow has a dilemma. She’s engaged to Seth Ballantine, a member of the National Guard’s 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team, and he’s returned from Iraq severely wounded. Jane hasn’t seen him for nearly a year, and with trepidation, she heads to the VA hospital in Asheville, North Carolina, where he is being treated.
Seth isn’t happy to see her. He’d asked her not to come. He wants to end the relationship. But Jane loves him, and despite his injury, she’s determined to convince him that they can have a life together. Her faith has never been strong, yet she hopes God will answer her prayers and tell her what to do.
Beautifully written, Travelers Rest takes readers on a journey through pain and tragedy to a place of hope and redemption.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
Jane Morrow and Seth Ballantine, were now excited about getting married, after all, they had known each other since childhood. After Seth was wounded in Iraq, he never thought he would have to be waitied on because he couldn’t do anything for himself. For Jane, this was ok because she loves Seth, and is willing to take care of him, no matter what. But will Seth really let Jane be his nurse for life? He was a man, and he wanted to take care of Jane, not Jane having to take care of him.
I’m not sure what I was expecting, but I was totally suprised at this book. It was a very good read, though it is also very sad, and depressing at times. Ann Tatlock does a wonderful job with believable characters and putting them in difficult situations to write a good historical read for her readers to enjoy. I highly encourage you to pick up a copy of this book for your enjoyment.
I rec’d a copy of this book from Bethany house in exchange for an honest review. The opinions here are mine alone.
