Love Unexpected by Jody Hedlund is a heartwarming historical romance novel about Patrick, a lighthouse keeper with a 2-yr.-old boy (Josiah) who marries Emma the first day he meets her, the day of his wife’s funeral. He has left his former criminal lifestyle and has become a God fearing man of God, but is Emma really safe with him? How did his former wife die? Can Patrick really put his past behind him? Can Emma trust him? Has he really changed? Will she stay when she discovers the truth about him and his boy? I’m not saying, you’ll have to read the book. This is the first of the “Beacons of Hope” series and I look forward to reading more.
I enjoyed this heartwarming clean romance novel and was rooting for Patrick and Emma all the way. It is a good read based on true lives of lighthouse keepers in Michigan from the 1800s. I was surprised to learn pirating existed on the Great Lakes back then.
