“Sophie Broadmoor adores fancy balls, beautiful gowns, and expensive jewelry. Indeed, she enjoys everything the Broadmoor wealth provides and has earned a reputation as the wildest of the Broadmoor cousins. During a trip to England, she falls head over heels for Wesley Hedrick, a wealthy widower who promises her the world. But Wesley’s promises never seem to come true, and soon Sophie finds herself in a very compromising situation. Why does it have to be Paul Medford, the young minister working with her father, who shows up during her worst moment? Paul is full of promises, too – and it’s clear that he has feelings for Sophie. But after all she’s been through, dare she trust him?”
Just as usual, Tracie Peterson has gone above and beyond in obtaining her readers attention with her writing. This book, the second novel in The Broadmoor Legacy trilogy, is as fascinating as the first novel. If you’ve read the first novel then you are most likely familiar with Sophie’s personality and socially unacceptable behavior. Unlike her two cousins, who are proper ladies who wouldn’t dare step out of society’s norms, Sophie likes to push those norms as far as she possibly can without damaging her reputation. But in one blind moment, she changed her entire life. It has been said many times that when it comes to love girls listen with their ears while guys look with their eyes (I hope I didn’t butcher that saying, but it goes something like that ) and it’s true. Just like in Sophie’s case, she feel in love with what Wesley said to her. I felt bad for Sophie and the situation she got herself into, but it also reminded me of the fact that if we don’t have Jesus in our lives, the empty feeling we experience will never go away. He is the only one who can fill that void. Not only will he fill the empty feeling we have but He will also change our lives in ways that we never thought possible. He loves us and only wants the very best for us. “For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeht; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” ~ Matthew 7:8.
