Becky Wade in her new book “A Love Like Ours book coverA Love Like Ours” Book Three in the Porter Family series published by Bethany House Publishers brings us into the lives of Lyndie James and Jake Porter.

From the back cover:   Former Marine Jake Porter has far deeper scars than the one that marks his face. He struggles with symptoms of PTSD, lives a solitary life, and avoids relationships.

When Lyndie James, Jake’s childhood best friend, lands back in Holley, Texas, Jake cautiously hires her to exercise his Thoroughbreds. Lyndie is tender-hearted, fiercely determined, and afraid of nothing, just like she was as a child. Jake pairs her with Silver Leaf, a horse full of promise but lacking in results, hoping she can solve the mystery of the stallion’s reluctance to run.

Though Jake and Lyndie have grown into very different adults, the bond that existed during their childhood still ties them together. Against Jake’s will, Lyndie’s sparkling, optimistic personality begins to tear down the walls he’s built around his heart. A glimmer of the hope he’d thought he’d lost returns, but fears and regrets still plague him. Will Jake ever be able to love Lyndie like she deserves, or is his heart too shattered to mend?

Welcome to the ranch for thoroughbred race horses. Jake owns the ranch and they are his horses. Lyndie is an old friend and wants to train the horses which concerns Jake because of the danger involved. The real danger is that she will break through the wall of protection he built around his heart. Ms. Wade explores the effects of PTSD that seems to be a recurring problem surrounding our returning vets. How these two are going to work together and draw close to one another is the basis for this really wonderful story. Jake and Lyndie are wonderful characters that live and breathe on the pages and we root for them all the way through the book.   “A Love Like Ours” is a marvelous story filled with great romance, healing and learning to trust again.  This book  does not disappoint at all.  I enjoyed it and I am so hoping for another book in this series.
