WHO I AM WITH YOU by Robin Lee Hatcher, Reviewed by Winnie Thomas

Who I Am with You is a beautifully written and emotionally touching story of two hurting people who help each other heal and find joy again. Jessica and Ridley are both realistic and endearing characters who have had their lives shattered and have retreated to Hope Springs, Idaho. Although they’re not looking for a relationship, they are drawn together. Robin Lee Hatcher has crafted a beautiful story of forgiveness and faith that resonated with me and kept me turning pages. The characters were so vividly drawn that I had no problem visualizing them and feeling their emotions.  

Along with the contemporary story, Hatcher has woven another story line about Jessica’s great-grandfather and his life during the Great Depression in the 1930s. The two threads are linked by a family Bible handed down through the family, now in Jessica’s possession.

I’ve read some of Hatcher’s books before and always enjoyed them. This one is going on the “keeper shelf.” I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.

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.

  1. Sounds wonderful, Winnie. I've been a fan of Robin Lee Hatcher for a very long time. I had just read one called Liberty Blue (before her switch to Christian fiction) and loved it when I met Robin at a writer's conference in Tempe, AZ. Her efforts to be a single mom, work full time and write really inspired me.
