A Love Like Ours

BeckyWade Becky Wade’s most recent novel highlights how God enables us—not just to survive hardships and heartaches—but to embrace life through them.

A Love Like Ours is about people who have messy lives.

A soldier weighed down with PTSD.

A single mom willing to take a chance on creating a family for her son in spite of a scarred heart.

A dad, once resigned to a solitary life after his wife abandoned him and her children, experiencing new love.

Parents who find a way to bring sunshine and sweetness into the life of their severely handicapped daughter.

God helps these characters find healing, joy, romance, redemption, happiness, and hope—which makes A Love Like Ours exactly the kind of novel I love to share with my students!

Yes, the romance takes center stage in this novel. Yet the story also shows us that only through Jesus can we take an honest look at ourselves, each other, and the state of the world—yet live, laugh, and love with abandon.

That’s what abundant life is all about.

Here are some of my favorite quotes . . .

And here’s the book blurb from Amazon to give you a few more specific details. “Former Marine Jake Porter has far deeper scars than the one that marks his face. He struggles with symptoms of PTSD, lives a solitary life, and avoids relationships.

Then Lyndie James, Jake’s childhood best friend, lands back in Holley, Texas.

Though Jake and Lyndie have grown into very different adults, the bond that existed during their childhood still ties them together. Against Jake’s will, Lyndie’s sparkling, optimistic personality begins to tear down the walls he’s built around his heart. A glimmer of the hope he’d thought he’d lost returns, but fears and regrets still plague him. Will Jake ever be able to love Lyndie like she deserves, or is his heart too shattered to mend?”
