About the Book
She wants stability. He wants spontaneity. What they need is each other.
Colin O’Bryan cashed out of the software company he founded and started a new life in Ireland. Content to wander from town to town as a traveling musician, he had no goals beyond healing from the betrayals that led to his career change, and finding his next gig.
After the death of her parents, Rachel Sullivan hoped her aunt’s B&B on the Southern coast of Ireland would be a place for her to settle and start a new life. Though she can’t deny the sparks in Colin’s touch, his lack of concern for hearth and home leave her torn. Can this free-spirited minstrel win her heart or will Rachel choose roots and stability over love?
This gentle inspirational romance will take you on a journey to Cork County, Ireland and give you a glimpse of Kinsale, Charles Fort, Blarney Castle, and Cobh as Rachel and Colin undergo their own journey of self-discovery as they learn that God’s plans are bigger than their own and that waiting on Him is worth the insecurity it brings.
FINDING LOVE AWAY FROM HOME
I adored this story of Colin O’Bryan and Rachel Sullivan. Collin was traveling all over Ireland, playing in pubs and enjoying life after his business was sold out from under him. Rachel is dealing with the death of both parents, having to give up the family business and trying to find herself and stability. The storyline kept me captivated and the dialogue was heartwarming. I was impressed with Colin keeping God in his adventure and helping Rachel see that God is still listening to her prayers. The sites and culture of Ireland was an added bonus to this story. “Don’t focus so hard on what was or you’ll lose sight of what could be. You don’t want to end up looking back over your life with regrets.”
