I have very mixed feelings about this book. The author's use of language was great, but there were two subplots that added bulk and were never resolved.

In general there was a lot that could have been edited out that would have made the story tighter. My theory that any book that takes more than 300 pages to tell the story needs editing proved true for me. I had the book for 9 weeks and barely finished before it was due. Just couldn't get excited about it.

Oh, and in the end she has the characters conclude it is such a rare and special love—the romance was never really developed. They were friends as kids and then were just 'in love'.

A Love Like Ours is a fictional, faith-based romance and best enjoyed with a mug of hot chocolate by the fireside. It’s heartwarming with a touch of faith.

Becky Wade does a marvelous job in developing her characters. Themes of healing and redemption are woven nicely into the story, and the horse, Texas setting is fun. Every girl will love Leslie for her kind and adventurous spirit. Then, handsome, but wounded, Jake will surely capture the reader's heart. This is not an overly fast paced book, but many enjoyable scenes make this book a great read.
