RAINBOW'S END (Encore Edition) by Irene Hannon, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"There was order in this place. And peace . . . It felt good here. And right. Like this was where he'd been heading all along. . . "

Instead of aimlessly wandering around . . . Keith Michaels fortuitously followed the store owner's directions to the only bed currently available on Orcas Island, in the middle of a storm, on a holiday weekend; tucked away within a small cottage located on a property dubbed "Rainbow's End". The young widow who met him at the door was properly guarded, barely showing her face to a stranger, but kindly albeit reluctantly offering hospitality nonetheless.

"'So you hide out here.' Her brow wrinkled. 'I'm not hiding.'"

Perhaps she was. Jill Whelan had the feeling that nothing in her carefully orchestrated isolated life was ever going to be the same again, begging the question, did she even want it to be?

"I stopped asking why . . . I had to learn to accept without understanding. Once I did that, once I let go of the anger, God was waiting to welcome me back."
Though short in pages, this story is rich in depth, delivering a sermon or two or three about everything that truly matters. Plus, it's a really sweet romance.

*I purchased a copy and was under no obligation to provide a positive review. 3.5 stars.

BackCover Blurb:
Can a reclusive artist
help a man who’s lost and adrift
find his way home?

Broken, empty, and alone after a cross-country search for answers, Keith Michaels takes refuge with reclusive artist Jill Whelan after a sudden squall strands him on Orcas Island. But while she offers him a place to wait out the storm, she wants nothing more to do with the stranger who’s in-vaded her turf. Yet Keith finds unexpected solace on her isolated property, and his one-night stay turns into an extended visit after he agrees to take on a project that is near and dear to her heart.

When a little boy in need enters their world, Jill and Keith join forces to help him. And along the way, might they also reconnect with life—and find healing, hope, and love at Rainbow’s End?

In this RITA award finalist novel, bestselling author Irene Hannon pens an unforgettable story that tugs at the heartstrings and demonstrates the power of love to transform lives.
