Can two broken paths--and broken hearts--lead toward God's redemption? When Ashley Showalter and Ben Henning meet on Ashley's horse rescue farm, they quickly discover how much they have in common. Both were raised by single moms. Both want to help where they see a need. And both work with horses in the Boise valley. Ben needs Ashley's help and expertise after starting an equine therapy barn on his great-great-grandfather's farm--and the more time they spend together, both Ashley and Ben have the feeling that there could be something more between them. They also carry the burden of past experiences that may drive them apart if the truth is ever revealed. Ben is a recovering alcoholic with five years of sobriety behind him, while Ashley's brother is an opioid addict residing in court-ordered rehab. Holding fast to the belief that addicts can never be cured, Ashley has promised herself she will never walk knowingly into the chaos created by addiction. Ben knows that with God, all things are possible--but will Ashley find it within herself to give love a chance? Or will her brother's mistakes and the pain of her past jeopardize her future with Ben? Cross My Heart threads together a contemporary love story with the heartwarming tale of Ben's great-great-grandfather, Andrew Henning--reminding us that God's Word is timeless and that His promises are new every morning. This sweet split-time read is a standalone novel, though it can be read as a part of the Legacy of Faith series.  Book one: Who I Am with You Book two: Cross My Heart Book three (coming in 2020): How Sweet It Is  Book length: approximately 79,000 words.

4.5 stars.

Cross My Heart by Robin Lee Hatcher is an endearing Christian romance. This second installment in the Legacy of Faith series can easily be read as a standalone. However, I highly recommend book one, Who I Am with You, as well.

Ben Hennings is a recovering alcoholic whose experiences with equine therapy have inspired him to turn his great-great-grandfather’s farm into a non-profit equine therapy center. He is relying on donations and leases to provide the horses he needs to open Harmony Barn and he is happily surprised by how many people are eager to help him. Ben's deep faith sustains him as he maintains his sobriety and works to bring his dream to fruition. He is quite close to his grandpa Grant, but Ben's relationship with his mother Wendy is strained. He continues to work through the steps in his recovery but his efforts to make amends to his childhood friend, Craig Foster, are rebuffed time and again. After meeting Ashley Showalter, Ben enjoys their quiet friendship, but will he be able to resist his growing feelings for her?

Ashley has turned her small farm into a horse rescue but she cannot rehabilitate as many horses as she would like. She works full-time at a local store but she is hopeful she will one day be able to expand her horse rescue. Ashley is thrilled to donate two of her rehabilitated horses to Ben and she is surprised by how much she enjoys spending time with him. She is close to her mom but their reactions to her brother, Dylan's addiction problems, are completely opposite. Ashley considers tough love to be the best approach, but her mom continues to enable him. Due to her experiences with Dylan and her former boyfriend, Ashley distances herself from romantic entanglements. But when she realizes she is beginning to fall for Ben, will Ashley take a chance on love?

Chapters from Ben's great-great-grandfather Andrew Hennings are sprinkled amongst present day events. Andrew and his wife Helen have survived the Great Depression, but now their lives are threatened by the looming threat of Hitler and World War II. Andrew's faith never wavers as his oldest son Ben joins The United States Army Air Forces as a combat pilot. His comments and observations on various passages of scripture are powerful messages to Ben who is now in possession of Andrew's bible.

With an exquisite undercurrent of faith, a realistic storyline and genuine characters, Cross My Heart is a marvelous Christian romance. Ashley's reaction when she learns about Ben's alcoholism is understandable and she finds unexpected comfort through her growing relationship with God. Ben is an incredibly likable character whose deep faith sustains him on his life's journey. Andrew's story continues to reverberate throughout the generations as his Bible makes its way to his descendants who need it most. Robin Lee Hatcher easily engages readers with her realistic storylines and thought-provoking incorporation of Scripture into everyday life. This latest addition to the Legacy of Faith series is a wonderful story of grace, love and redemption. Highly recommend to fans of Christian fiction. ( )

What I think you should know:
Cross My Heart is the second book in the Legacy of Faith series however it can be read as a standalone novel. It is a time slip novel, the first story is a contemporary story, in which Ben has just inherited his grandfather’s farm. His goal is to turn into an equine therapy center. Ashley has been involved in horse rescue but does not have facilities like he does so she is happy to help him in his venture. The second story is Ben’s Great Grandfather, Andrew’s it takes place on the family farm in starting in 1939.

What you might want to know:
Ben is a recovering alcoholic and Ashley’s brother is an opioid addict, they both have scars from how what addiction has impacted in their lives.

What I enjoyed about this book:
This is a wonderful story of hope, forgiveness, overcoming your past and redemption. Ben is a wonderful example of what can happen if an alcoholic is able to overcome their past. He is a character who has had a very rough past, but is determined not to let his past overshadow his future, he also wants to help people find the freedom that he has found. Ashely is a good representation of many who have an addict as a family member, many parts of her life have been impacted by the demands of the addict. Ben’s Grandfather was a wonderful character who reminded me of my own grandfather. Robin Lee Hatcher, the author, has done a wonderful job of creating characters that are intriguing and realistic. I can’t wait for the next book in the series

Andrew Henning’s story continues as his Bible influences another one of his descendents in Robin Lee Hatcher’s new book, Cross My Heart. With the Bible in hand, Ben Henning pursues his plans to turn the family farm into an equine therapy barn, which allows him to cross paths with horse rescuer Ashley Showalter. A friendship quickly forms around horses—but as it turns out, the pair has more in common than a shared interest.

As this contemporary story mixes with Andrew’s historical one, occurring as America enters World War II, Hatcher weaves a remarkable tale of faith, particularly of learning to trust God and others. It’s a heartwarming read, though not without a healthy dose of ups and downs, and I enjoyed it and recommend it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own. ( )

An equine therapy startup, substance addiction, and the US’s entry into World War II all play a role in Cross My Heart, book two in Robin Lee Hatcher’s Legacy of Faith series.

On the other side of some poor choices and dark years, Ben Henning’s dream of opening an equine therapy ranch on his great-great grandfather’s ranch is coming to fruition. In need of horses for the operation, he seeks out Ashley Showalter who is best known around town for her work rescuing mustangs.

These two people, both beaten down in different ways but now paying kindness forward, find comfort in the other. Much of this book builds the connections between Ben and Ashley. With the help of Andrew Henning’s Bible, the two of them gain confidence and faith in what God intends for them.

Readers of the previous book (Who I Am With You) will appreciate the next stage in Andrew’s life. His family, his challenges and joys of as a father, his heartache, and his practice of taking it all before God resonated with me and I can’t wait to find out what’s next for the Henning family (with both Andrew and with whatever cousin we get to meet next).

One old farmhouse and the stories it can and will tell. The days of the Great Depression, the anxious times as family awaited news from the war front and now something very new.

Ben has inherited the old farm that has been in the family for many years. Equine therapy helped him learn to accept some of the poor choices he made. Could he possible transform the old farm into Harmony Barn and thus pay that help forward? Ashley has long had a love for horses, to the point where she now participates in horse rescue. This therapy has helped her work through some of the issues of her youth. Will it be possible for them both to learn to trust in the Lord and His leading in this venture?

The author has done a fabulous job of seamlessly joining the old story with the new, bringing life to the old farmhouse and giving the reader the feeling that everyone’s story just continues on. I appreciated the opportunity to learn more about what is involved in equine therapy. As a horse lover myself, I can just imagine what comfort can be derived from such a gentle giant.

This ARC was received through NetGalley and CelebrateLit. These comments, impressions and opinions are my own. ( )
