REVIEW: Nopeming Shores by Margie Church & J. Andrew Lockhart

Nopeming Shores by Margie Church & J. Andrew Lockhart

An IED snuffed out Gabe Holliway's life, but couldn't destroy his love. Using his unique gift, Gabe struggles to help his young wife, Lily, rebuild her shattered future.

But when Gabe's ghost reaches out to her, Lily fears she's lost her last hold on sanity. Can she trust what she discovers and what her heart says? When she sees Gabe face-to-face, can she believe her eyes?

When love transcends death, the answers are found in Nopeming Shores.

Before I give you my review I must warn you. When reading Nopeming Shores make sure you have a box of tissue's handy. Trust me, you are going to need them. Margie weaves such a heart wrenching tale that you just can't walk away from. I too have lost someone near and dear to my heart and so I could totally relate to Lily's plight (could also be part of the reason I cried so much....^_^).

Lily Holliway is a widow grieving over the lose of her husband. Everywhere she turns she feels like she is drowning in a sea of despair. Her close friends Jana and Alex try all they can to help Lily through her pain but to no avail.

Shane Keefe leaves his large veterinary service in Memphis to start over at his friend Alex's Leigha Acres Veterinary Service in Stevers. Shane has a successful practice but is unlucky in love. He is hoping the move to a new town will turn things around for him.

When Shane bumps into Lily at her job, Love's In Bloom, you can tell there is an unspoken attraction between the two of them but with Lily still grieving over her husband Gabriel, their timing is always off.

There is so much I have to leave out of this review otherwise it might not strike just the right note to tug at your heartstrings and make you cry your eyes Not to mention it would give away some things that might ruin the overall story for everyone. Margie knows how to tap into peoples emotions and make you feel her characters pain, as well as, their joy. This story truly amazed me and I am so thankful I got a chance to read it. On a scale from 1-10 I give Nopeming Shores a MIND BLOWING 20. This month I have read two other books that have caused my scale to jump to 20, but I must say, this story of love and loss really called to me. If you have lost a loved one, believe in getting a fresh start, enduring love, or just love a book that can make you cry then Nopeming Shores is a MUST READ. Everyone needs to run out and grab a copy of Margie's book and let Nopeming Shores rejuvenate you.
