New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak welcomes readers to the town of Silver Springs, where surprises wait around every corner!

The search for her birth mother brought Cora Kelly to the New Horizons Boys Ranch. Getting a job there was easy enough, but confiding in Aiyana, the ranch’s owner, that she’s really her daughter? Cora’s not sure she can do that, not unless she’s confident the news will be welcomed. And once she gets to know Elijah Turner—Aiyana’s adopted son and ranch manager—that decision becomes even more difficult.

Although Elijah can’t deny his deep attraction to Cora, he’s always struggled with trust. Anyone with his past would, and there’s something about the ranch’s newest employee that isn’t exactly as it seems. But if the feelings she awakes in his guarded heart are any indication, she might be just what he’s long been waiting for.

Favorite Quote:


‘I like being with you,’ he said as if it was a revelation, because it was. Not only was she refreshing, she was healing…


My Review:


Finding Our Forever was a poignant, sweet, and heart-squeezing story. The plot was thoughtful, relevant, and well paced. Ms. Novak artfully crafted flawed and endearing characters with inner strength coexisting with deep vulnerabilities, and the dichotomy made them all the more lovable and deserving. A devastating childhood of abuse and neglect left Eli scarred and guarded, I adored him!  But somehow Cora tunneled through his defenses without really trying and quickly worked her way under his skin, and vice-versa. I loved how thoughtful and sweet this couple treated each other. The emotional tone was well balanced despite the angsty subtext and I sighed with contentment upon reaching the satisfying conclusion.   I look forward to a return trip to Silver Springs.
