The Wedding Garden by Linda Goodnight

From the back of the book:
"Are You My Dad?"

The You Boy's question shocks Sloan Hawkins.
Until Sloan realizes he is this child's father.
Years ago, the former bad boy was run out of
Redemption, Oklahoma, where, ironically, he
 was thought unredeemable.  The only people who
believed in him were his beloved aunt and
Annie Markham the girl he loved and left
behind.  Now Sloan is back is back to face his past and
and help his aunt's cherished garden thriving.
But when he discovers his secret child - and that
single mother Annie never stopped loving him -
he's determined that a wedding will take place in
the garden nurtured by faith and love.

My Review:
     The night of the senior prom, Annie Markham was all excited to share her secret with the love of her life, Sloan Hawkins. Yet, all she got was stood up.  
     Now twelve years later, Sloan has shown up on his aunt's doorstep. His aunt is dying and Annie is not sure if she can keep her continue to keep Sloan at a distance. When all she wants is to feel his arms around her.

     Sloan may have been gone for twelve years, but he has never gotten over his, Annie.  Now that he knows that they have a son together, can the past be mended.  Could there be a chance for them to be a family, even though Annie's father hates him.

    This is just one of the books that are in the "Redemption River Series" by Linda Goodnight. I loved it.  I enjoyed the way that the author brought the characters together not as fiction, but as real life would be.  Life is not always a fairytale, but with the Grace of God, we are able to walk through the valleys and mountain tops that we are faced with in life.

    I would gladly give this book a 5 star rating.  I know that most of the books that I have read lately have been given this rating.  I try to be as honest as I can.  This book was easy to read.  One that you could pick up for the week-end and finish.
