Who I Am With You | Book Review

ABOUT THE BOOK


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 broken their hearts, 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

The start to Robin Lee Hatcher’s new Legacy of Faith series, Who I Am With You captivates with a heartfelt story of brokenness and healing, connecting past and present through contemporary and historical characters.

The lives of Jessica Mason and Ridley Chesterfield have both been touched by scandal and loss. As the two deal with the ramifications of the past and learn how to move forward, they never expected to find each other. Still, their friendship (and then, romance, of course) grows, and their story fills with lessons on trust, forgiveness, and hope—encouraged a bit by the Bible belonging to Jessica’s great-grandfather, Andrew Henning, who had his own story to share.

Who I Am With You is a sweet story. I so enjoyed getting to know these characters, their hurts and pains, their joys and faith, and loved how the two storylines worked together to create an entertaining, uplifting read. I recommend it.
