From the back cover: Mortified after her year abroad is cut short, Amelia Christiansen returns to Deep Haven, certain she isn’t brave enough to embrace the adventures she’s dreamed of. The last thing she expects is for the man who broke her heart to cross the Atlantic and beg forgiveness.
Heir to a European hotel dynasty, Roark St. John has trekked from one exotic locale to another, haunted by tragedy and the expectations that accompany his last name. Amelia is the first woman to give him a reason to stop running. He’ll do anything for a second chance—even contend with Amelia’s old flame, who is intent on sending Roark packing.
While one surprise after another leaves Amelia reeling, Roark’s continued presence only highlights the questions pursuing her. Like him, is she running from the life God has called her to? Could finding her place mean leaving home behind?
I like Deep Haven. I really enjoy the Christiansen family. I would stay at their Lodge and try to hang out with them. Right now the main focus is on Amelia, Roark and Seth. Both Roark and Seth have been loved by Amelia before and both want to have her now. Amelia, to her credit, wants to level the playing field to see which way, if any, her heart will decide. That is what makes this book so much fun. Obviously there is a whole lot going on in this book. The Christiansen Family are not perfect however they are interesting and I would have no problem having them as my friends. Ms. Warren does a superb job of making each character, especially Amelia, Roark and Seth, come alive so much that they seem as if they have been our friends all our lives. “The Wonder of You” is a wonderful, sweet story with power and depth that will keep you flipping pages. I recommend this book highly and look forward to the next reunion with the Christiansen Family.
