The Gift by Wanda Brunstetter
Leah Mast has a gift. The gift of healing through reflexology, a special type of massage of the feet and their pressure points. People from all around come for her help, all, that is, except Adam. Adam is totally opposed to such "hocus-pocus" type treatments and shows his disdain in the way he treats her. Although a handsome young bachelor, definitely not for Leah.
Adam Beachy's family dissolved as he was a young boy, when his mother left his father and their two children. Adam can't forgive this and lives a life of unhappiness that appears to have carried through from childhood to his adulthood. When tragedy again comes in his life, he finds himself the guardian of his three young nieces, a job he is not very prepared for and requests the help of Leah.
Leah quickly bonds with the girls, which is noticed by Adam who suggests a marriage in name only. Not really the romantic proposal she would ever want, nor from the man of her dreams. But she loves the girls. She must decide what to do.
I enjoyed this book very much, although it may have ended a little quicker than I expected and I do see that there will be another book in the series. Because I would certainly want to see how their lives continue.
I give this book 4 1/2 stars. Good job Wanda!
