Litfuse Review: Love Without End by:Robin Lee Hatcher

Love Without End (Kings Meadow Romance #1)
About the Book:
Chet and Kimberly have both failed when it comes to love. Will they risk their hearts to love again?

Chet Leonard's life was forever changed when his seventeen year old son died and then, soon after, his wife walked out on their family. Over two years later, all he wants to do is hold onto his horse ranch and raise his remaining sons to be honorable men.

Kimberly Welch, widowed mother of Tara, a rebellious fifteen-year-old, has reached the end of her finances and nearly the end of her rope. She and Tara come to King's Meadow to try to piece their lives back together again. Kimberly has no intention of become involved with the residents of this remote mountain community and certainly not with any man.

When 84-year-old Anna McKenna returns to King's Meadow and to the Leonard ranch, she becomes an agent of change and healing for the two hurting families. With her help, Kimberly and Chet's families at last discover a love without end.

My Review: 
 Kimberly Welch lost her husband to a heart attack almost three years ago. As a result of that she lives with her best friend. Due to her lack of funds, she really doubts she can afford the lessons her daughter needs after recently been given a very rowdy pinto. Chet Leonard's wife abandoned both him and their two boys, after their third son died in a car accident. Now he does all he can to provide and care for the family that he has left.

 Chet agrees to tame Kimberly's daughters horse for her but only if she will help around the ranch. As her daughter helps out around the ranch she grows closer to 84 year old Anna McKenna. Everyone loves Anna so there is no wonder she has become attached to the older woman. Soon everyone learns the connection this woman has to the Leonard family. If you are interested in learning more, you can here.

 Robin Lee Hatcher is a great author that develops her characters well. She can take any situation and make a story out of it. Love Without End is a story that shows us love can exist even after it seems that all attempts are exhausted.
