Wild Montana Skies by Susan May Warren is a very, very, great book. Except for the few first chapters, I read it all in one day. And night. I stayed up until 4:30 this morning reading it. It was a very well developed story line. (note from Mom….I am just finding out about this 4:30 a.m. bedtime…ahem.)
Here is a summary:
Kacey and Ben used to have a past together. Used to. But not anymore.
After a perfect teenage romance gone wrong, they both decide to leave town to start over in their lives. Thirteen years later, they both come back.
Ben: “Of course, it was totally her fault.”
Kacey: “It was his fault, really.”
That summer, they have to spend time together, against their wishes. Once they do spend time, they enjoy it more and more.
It is hard to move past the hurt of the past, but they slowly learn that the forgiving the past could lead to an amazing future.
But their is one problem, Audrey. While they both love her, they don’t want to disturb her life.
This is an amazing story of how characters can move past the past. This is a story of second chances and forgiveness. This is a story of finding love again after 13 years. The theme of this story is giving your life completely and totally to God without expecting anything. The characters learn what real faith is.
I loved reading this book, it captured me from the very beginning.
In the “Author’s Note” at the back of the book, she said that while she was writing Wild Montana Skies, Amazing Grace kept coming back to her. The first verse of that song pretty much sums up this book. Very, very good book.
This is my first time reading this author, and I can’t wait to read the second one!
