Book Summary

Mitch, a contractor and house-flipper, is restoring a beautiful old house in an idyllic Midwestern neighborhood. Angela, a woman filled with regrets and recently transplanted to his area, is anything but idyllic. She’s almost his worst nightmare, and she’s also working on restoring something herself. As he struggles to keep his business afloat and she works to overcome mistakes of her past, these two unlikely friends soon discover they have something unexpected in common, a young mom who is fighting to give her children a better life after her husband’s incarceration. While both Mitch and Angela are drawn to help this young mother survive, they also find themselves drawn to each other. Will a lifetime of regrets hold them back or unite them and bring redemption along with true love?

Restoring Love, part of New Hope Publishers’ line of contemporary missional fiction, demonstrates how God can turn our greatest tragedies and failures into beautiful acts of love and grace that can impact the lives of others. Readers will connect with the realistic characters and find they can relate to the complex situations that makes Jennifer Slattery’s book so appealing. Readers will be inspired to see how God wants to use us to restore people’s perception of love in action.

Book Review by Bree Herron

Restoring Love,restored my faith in love. I have been jaded in love, but after this great novel I have hope. Jennifer gives her readers the sweetest of love stories in this modern world setting, she gives readers raw and emotional characters.

I loved the dynamics of each character and their backgrounds. They felt REAL to me. Like people I would maybe see everyday, or even neighbors. These were characters that you could see the love and breath of life given to these characters. I loved the story’s plot of second chances and turning over a new leaf. I loved that these were mature characters, not twenty years old and fresh to love. These characters give love a new meaning.

I will be sharing this book, and talking about this book. It is one that those feeling lost on love, and scared of love will heal with. This charming fictional story will be one that breathes a new chapter of love into your life.

I Rate it
