"Persistent Love." Is a novella written by Laura Marshall. It is a Christian romance with even a small amount of suspense. In it, we are introduced to the Kenward Family and several of their servants. We also meet their neighbors, the Sharptons.
We get to enjoy the romance of care Tara Kenward and Andrew Sharpton. It began on very rocky ground (Tara wanted nothing to do with Andrew.) He felt something there, though, and would never give up pursuing her. When he was away from her, Tara felt an empty stirring in her heart, and finally opened up to the possibilities. You'll have to read the book to find out if Andrew won her heart. Jesus, however, did win her heart. After a painful childhood and the terror of a current incident, Tara finally began reading her mother's Bible and eventually gave herself to the healing provided by our merciful Savior.
I would recommend this book for a sweet quick read. It made me cry, get angry, laugh, and smile-just the kind of story I love to read.
