I'll Know You By Heart by Kimberly Job


The day Stephanie Roberts met Jared Wakefield, she didn't realize they'd met before. Running from an abusive marriage and trying to safeguard her children, she turns to Jared for support, but he needs more from her than she might be capable of giving. With her abusive husband looming in her past, the difficulties they must overcome to be together seem insurmountable. Is it possible for love to conquer all? I'll Know You By Heart is a timeless romance that explores the possibility that relationships span the entire realm of eternity. A story about abuse, hardship, and betrayal, it is ultimately a story about the healing power of everlasting true love.

'I'll Know You by Heart' is a story about abuse, heartache, faith, forgiveness and love. Stephanie is an abused wife. She finally gets the courage to leave him when he hits one of the children. I was so frustrated and angry with the husband. Humans should not treat hurt each other let alone their spouse or children. I felt for Stephanie as she tried to find a job and a home, keep everyone safe emotionally and physically and take the next step in getting away from her husband.
When she meets Jared, she realizes men an treat women with respect.
Jared is kind, sensitive and thoughtful. He went through his own trials with his wife and is trying to safe guard his daughter against further pain. He didn't expect to fall in love. I wanted Jared and Stephanie to live happily ever after, but life isn't like fairy tales. There are hardships to overcome but those are meant to make us stronger.

Kimberly did a superb job in getting me emotional invested in the story. I smiled, laughed and a couple of time, cried. I developed even more empathy for women trapped in an abusive relationship. I feel for the children as well.
This is Kimberly's first book and a great start of her career.
This book is a good, clean romance.

DAUGHTER OF ISHMAEL by Diane Tolley BLOG TOUR and SPOTLIGHT!

I'm spotlighting Diane Tolley's book Daughter of Ishmael!
(Isn't the cover pretty??)


Hannah, faithful third daughter of Ishmael has been raised happily in the home of an honourable man. A woman wholly committed to her Saviour. A woman who understands Nephi’s love of the scriptures and commitment to the gospel and secretly longs for such a husband, but finds herself given in marriage to his older brother, Lemuel.
Through the women’s eyes, Daughter of Ishmael follows the family of Ishmael as they commit themselves to Lehi and find their faith tested in the wilderness. Recounts their struggles there with deaths, births and apostasy. Tells of their time in Bountiful and the building of a ship. And their suffering below decks on the Great Irriantum when Laman and Hannah’s husband, Lemuel battle the Lord Himself in their drive to defeat Nephi and take control of the family.
Even their arrival in the Promised Land isn’t without its challenges as they settle. Pride, envy and greed are…
