Book Review - Beloved Counterfeit

Beloved Counterfeit

Beloved Counterfeit
Fairweather Keys book 3
by Kathleen Y'Barbo

A sweeping love story begs one woman's confession, one man's forgiveness. When the less-than-reputable Ruby O'Shea washes up on the shores of Fairweather Key, she's determined to bury her past and make a new life for herself and her three nieces. But doing so will entail secrecy and deception. Is that any way to start anew? When Micah Tate, a wrecker, widower, and soon-to-be preacher, falls for Ruby, it seems a wedding is certain and her past unimportant. But as Ruby's secrets are uncovered, Micah finds himself falling short of the grace of forgiveness. Will Micah abandon the heart that God has won? Or will he stand by his woman against all odds?

Well, I got to read the next book in Kathleen Y'Barbo's series, Fairweather Keys. It was just as good as the second book. It starts with a bit of background on Ruby O'Shea, so that you can understand a little of where she's been in her life. She had a really rough start. You can sympathize with her when she starts having trouble with her present life. She is a new Christian and struggles with leaving her old life behind. If that isn't difficult enough, she has three neices to protect and raise, and Micah Tate seems to want to court her. For what reason, she can't fathom. Micah has his own demons to deal with; a sense of guilt for past mistakes, a sense of failure in the most basic area a man feels he needs to succeed. He, too, struggles with living a new life in Christ. They both have accepted the forgiveness of the Lord, but have to learn to forgive themselves and forget the old sins. Due to circumstances, they find they have to marry. Partly a marraige of convenience and partly a marraige of attraction, but they try to find a way to make it work. When trouble from the past comes knocking at their door, it seems life is against them. They have difficulty in getting past this rather large bump in the road. Their faith in God and each other is put to the test and tried in the fire of life. Where do they go from here? Will they help each other or fall apart in the trial?
