WHO I AM WITH YOU by Robin Lee Hatcher, Reviewed by Susan Snodgrass

'Some lessons a person had to learn for themselves and not from hearing the experiences of others.'

Jessica Mason is still suffering from the totally unexpected death of her husband and young daughter and now, a pregnant widow, who is also suffering from her husband's betrayal, she is trying to come to terms with the pain of the life she must now lead. Ridley Chesterfield has come to Hope Springs to get away from a political scandal and just wants to heal. He trusts God to get him through this. Jessica wonders where God is. 

Interspersed throughout with snippets from the notes in her great grandfather's Bible, Jessica is feeling to pull on her heart to trust God again. Neither Jessica nor Ridley expects love at this point in their lives. But these two broken people, both having no reason to trust another person again, realize that putting their trust in God also means that He will give them the strength to trust others again.

I have been a Robin Lee Hatcher fan for many years. I always will be. She writes deeply emotional stories that grab the reader's heart and draws them in completely. I highly recommend this one.

BackCover Blurb:

For these two broken hearts, the first step toward love will be a huge leap of faith. 
Jessica Mason isn’t looking for love when she meets Ridley Chesterfield. Instead she is still reeling from the tragic, unexpected loss of her husband and daughter—and awaiting the arrival of her unborn child. Harboring the secret of her husband’s betrayal, her pain is deeper than anyone knows.
Ridley Chesterfield is hiding out in Hope Springs, Idaho, avoiding a political scandal and the barrage of false media headlines that have tarnished his good name. The last thing Ridley wants is a relationship—but when fate leads Ridley to form a friendship with his reclusive and pregnant neighbor, he wonders if this small-town hideout might be more of a long-term destination. 

When Jessica begins to read her great-grandfather’s Bible, she finds a connection with a man she never knew. Somehow the verses he marked and the words he wrote in the margins open her heart to healing. And as Ridley and Jessica help each other forgive the people who have wronged them, they must decide if the past will define them or if they will choose to love again. 

Who I Am With You weaves together a modern-day romance with Jessica’s great-grandfather’s story from the 1930s, reminding us that some truths can cross generations and that faith has the power to transform families forever.
