Together With You by Victoria Bylin Book Review

Good Morning Friends~Once again it is time for a book review; I'm sure you'll love this story. I have a special announcement at the end of this post.

From The Author:
"When a Lost Child warning blares over the mall's PA system, Carly Mason finds the little girl playing with a stuffed rabbit. Something about Penny Tremaine is different. An ex-social worker, Carly recognizes that the child suffers fetal alcohol effects, and a piece of Carly's past suddenly confronts her. Never again will she become personally involved with a client. The risks are far too great. But something about Penny--and Penny's handsome father--tugs at Carly's heart.

Dr. Ryan Tremaine is trying to put his life back together. With his ex-wife remarried and on a trip far away, his two teenage sons and Penny are living under his roof full time. Ryan has put his faith in his Sink-or-Swim list, a plan to reconnect with his children. The first step: recruit Carly Mason to be Penny's nanny.

Ryan never anticipated being so drawn to Carly, an attraction Carly seems to fight as much as he does. Could Carly be the missing piece that helps his family stay afloat, or will their blossoming romance only complicate things further?"

I loved this book for many reasons, Carly's love for a special needs child and her way of interacting Penny.  I have always had a very special place in my heart for children who have disabilities,  especially down syndrome, autism or emotional problems.  This book grabbed me from the start.
I wondered how the difference in faith would be resolved and it was, but in a way that I didn't expect.  I haven't read any of the authors books before, but would rate this a five star and also want to read more of her stories.  It was a quick read and I would highly recommend it.
Bethany House provided me with this book in exchange for my honest review.  I did not receive any compensation for it.
Also, this morning when I went to Victoria Bylin's website, I found out she is having a great give away-here is the link. Go visit and enter it!

I hope you have a great day and fantastic weekend.
Joy to you~
