About the Book
Victoria Donnelly wants to do something right at least once in her lifetime. With five years of failed courtships behind her and the calendar inching closer to another birthday, she’s finally found a way to redeem herself in the eyes of her family. But her plan requires her to return to her home town of Eagle Harbor, where forgotten feelings for a man she can never have lie buried.
Elijah Cummings has loved Victoria for fifteen years. But fishermen’s sons don’t marry shipping barons’ daughters. He knows it. She knows it. The entire town knows it. Resolved to keep his distance from Victoria, Elijah focuses on establishing a much needed life-saving station, risking his own life by rescuing sailors stuck aboard shipwrecks… until he learns she’s about to make an irreversible decision, one she’ll spend the rest of her life regretting.
He knows how to save drowning sailors—but how is he to save the woman he loves from the biggest mistake of her life… without destroying both their hearts in the process?
Come back in time and revisit the remote town of Eagle Harbor, Michigan, in this memorable story of love, courage, and drama by fan-favorite author Naomi Rawlings.

I HAVE LOVED YOU WITH AN EVERLASTING LOVE
This is the second book in the Eagle Harbor series but can read easily as a stand-alone. It does have many of the characters from the first book, Love’s Unfading Light. What a beautiful story and a reminder that God has created each of us fearfully and wonderfully. That includes any imperfections or flaws that others may see. Victoria Donnelly feels inferior to others, she is tall and does not think herself pretty, but even worse, she stutters. Elijah Cummings has always been a champion for Victoria and has been in love with her since they were in grade school. Gilbert Sinclair and Elijah have been at war since school, and even as adults, they battle, for land and her affections. What happens when Gilbert proposes marriage to Victoria with the encouragement of her parents? She is no more than a pawn in their game. What happens as the town becomes divided regarding a new dock and warehouse by Gilbert and the request for a U.S. Life-Saving Service station by Elijah and both are vying for the same piece of land? This story is a beautiful story of faith, family and friends. The plot kept me captivated with a cast of delightful characters, heartwarming moments and the love of God without feeling like a preachy story. “When a man’s way please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.”
