About Who I Am With You
For these two broken hearts, the first step toward love will be a huge leap of faith.
Jessica Mason isn’t looking for love when she meets Ridley Chesterfield. Instead she is still reeling from the tragic, unexpected loss of her husband and daughter—and awaiting the arrival of her unborn child. Harboring the secret of her husband’s betrayal, her pain is deeper than anyone knows.
Ridley Chesterfield is hiding out in Hope Springs, Idaho, avoiding a political scandal and the barrage of false media headlines that have tarnished his good name. The last thing Ridley wants is a relationship—but when fate leads Ridley to form a friendship with his reclusive and pregnant neighbor, he wonders if this small-town hideout might be more of a long-term destination.
When Jessica begins to read her great-grandfather’s Bible, she finds a connection with a man she never knew. Somehow the verses he marked and the words he wrote in the margins open her heart to healing. And as Ridley and Jessica help each other forgive the people who have wronged them, they must decide if the past will define them or if they will choose to love again.
Who I Am With You weaves together a modern-day romance with Jessica’s great-grandfather’s story from the 1930s, reminding us that some truths can cross generations and that faith has the power to transform families forever.
My Review of Who I Am With You
It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book by Robin Lee Hatcher and I don’t know why that is. That is probably a good thing because it meant I went into this book review with no (memory) of preconceived notions. I had forgotten
what her writing was how good her writing is so I just opened my kindle to read, what I did not know.
I was immediately drawn in and focused on the story. Poor Jessica (because I truly felt for her) is pregnant and trying to cope with the loss of her husband and child in a small town where everyone knows your business. She is also struggling with a bit more than just the sudden loss of her family and her sadness just oozed off the page.
Ridley Chesterfield enters right away and (because I have no preconceived notions) I peg him right away as a playboy. I don’t know why that is but something with how Robin described him from the beginning had me feeling like he wasn’t one to be trusted. I was soon proven wrong.
These two form a tentative friendship that helps to heal both hearts. It’s so touching to witness and Ridley’s protective care of Jessica is what so many women dream of.
Coupled with their own personal story, through the introduced prop of a family Bible we learn about Jessica’s great grandfather and his story helps to also heal Jessica’s heart.
This is one of those cases where I enjoyed the book so much I went searching for more good reads by Robin Lee Hatcher (and found them).
