Summoned by a desperate call from her brother in law, Nate, Josie reluctantly returns to Sweetwater Gap to assist with the harvest and ensure her pregnant sister Laurel takes it easy leading up to the birth of her twins. Hiding the real reason for her return, the hope that she can talk her sister into selling the orchard, Josie eases back into the life she loved but can no longer enjoy.
As Josie keeps her own dark secret from her family, she finds herself at odds with the new orchard manager, the brooding Grady Mackenzie, a man who dislikes Josie from the start with his own axe to grind.
As they battle frost and financial difficulties together, Josie and Grady begin to uncover each other’s secrets which have the power to draw them together or wrench them apart.
Sweetwater Gap is another triumph for Denise Hunter. A poignant story, complete with beautiful prose, rich characters and a unique allegory of God’s sacrifice and forgiveness, which I recommend without hesitation. Having raised the bar with her romantic allegory, The Convenient Groom, I had high expectations for Sweetwater Gap and Denise delivers. Delving deeply into the issues of forgiveness, prejudice and sacrifice, this emotive story engages the mind and touches the heart. Denise has perfected the art of allegory and the message of Jesus' sacrifice and God's forgiving heart unfold clearly. I can't wait for more books like Sweetwater Gap from this fabulous writer.
