Christmas Advent 2015 - Day 2 - Return to Love by Kathleen Shoop

Return to Love by Kathleen Shoop
An Endless Love Novel, Book 2

Sweet Romance… Fresh off their whirlwind nuptials and unexpected, but joyous pregnancy, April and Hale Abercrombie are gleeful about their life together. But, while Hale is serving his country in Vietnam, he receives news of the loss of their newborn daughter. 

 Back home on leave, Hale can barely wait to hold his wife. Their reunion is passionate and their physical connection, strong and soothing. His embrace, his touch, and his love are just as perfect as April remembered. But nothing, not even Hale, can ease April’s heartache. 

 Hale stumbles through his attempts at convincing her that their future will be rich and full of wonder despite their loss. His good-hearted, but take-charge approach causes her to retreat. Even in grief, April recognizes Hale’s earnestness, yet she can’t help but distance herself from him. With only a short time before Hale must return to war, the couple begins to understand that hope starts with them—that the bliss they once knew will return only if they are willing to trust again. 

 Set on the beaches of the Outer Banks, Return to Love is the second book in the Endless Love series. Book one, Home Again, was named a finalist in the 2014 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

My daughter, Beth, being born on Christmas Eve!

What makes Christmas special for Kathleen...
Family and Friends.

Kathleen's Christmas Wish for 2015…
World Peace...and not in a flippant way. I wish somehow the world could just right itself overnight. I suppose each of us can do our part, so I wish we all did that--saw each other as we want to be seen.

  1. I am pretty sure I have read the first one of these, probably worth checking before I jump into number two x

  2. I had no idea a book advent calendar even existed! That's amazing :) Even though I'm super picky with what I read I'm sure this is great for book lovers.
