RETURN TO GARRISON by Kari Wirth, Reviewed by Debra E. Marvin

Return to Garrison was a pleasant surprise for me--a lovely story to sink into. As a primarily 'mystery' reader, it can sometimes take some work to draw me into women's fiction. This story did. Well-written and nicely paced, the story and just the right little details really pulled me in.
Kari Wirth is a new-to-me author, so I was glad to have the opportunity to read this story. The heroine, Anna, does some soul-searching and that felt just right in these strange times. Her 'journey' felt perfectly real as she balanced the need to move forward with her life while facing parts of her past. 
Return to Garrison is a warm, comfortable story that will provide you with a very satisfying read, and maybe the encouragement you didn't know you needed. 
Inkwell Rating 3- Strong Faith Message (but not preachy!)

BackCover Blurb:
Facing her past is the only way she can embrace her future.Anna Sutton is living in Buffalo, New York, pursuing her dream of being a best-selling novelist, but things aren’t going as planned. After some soul-searching, she feels drawn to return to the small town she thought she’d put behind her eight years earlier. But before she can leave the city, she finds herself in the middle of a convenience store robbery. 

Much to her surprise, one of the teenagers involved strikes an emotional chord with her, and she finds herself getting involved against her better judgement. Jake O’Connor has lived a lifetime of heartache, and he’s only fifteen years old. It looks like his next stop is juvenile hall, until Anna steps up to help him. In the small town of Garrison, Indiana, Anna and Jake must face the ghosts of their pasts and learn to trust God with their futures. They have nothing in common, but they just might save each other.
