Author: Lucie Ulrich
Rating: 5 stars
About the Book
With a will that reads like a piece of fiction, the return of his long-lost brother, and the possibility of losing the family ranch, Micah Cooper calls on high school friend, Sky Baxter, to bail him out of a bad situation.
Though her brain tells her no, Sky’s heart says yes. She accepts Micah’s in-name-only proposal, knowing it’s unlikely anything permanent will come of it. She’s been in love with him since the ninth grade, and if he hasn’t figured it out by now, there’s little chance he ever will.
When an unexpected kiss ignites a spark, giving Micah hope for a possible future with Sky, a tragic accident threatens to take it all away. Torn between following his heart, doing the right thing, and forgiving the past, Micah is lost in a whirlwind of pain and emotions. Will he make it through the next two years, or will a long-kept family secret be the undoing of the Cooper family? (or… be the undoing of all of them?)
I was so emotionally drawn into this story that I had tears and felt physical pain from the hurt feelings invoked reading this beautiful story. It has love, heartache, absolution, forgiveness and acceptance. Pain, loss and anger has caused so many of them to turn away from God and each other as a family. Each will have to seek God’s will and follow his guidance before healing can begin.
The story revolved around the Sky Baxter, a woman who had an alcoholic mother, never knew who her father was, and never really had a home life, she is on her own now. Carl Johnston, the owner of the diner where Sky works as a waitress. Carl is like a surrogate father to her. He lost his wife Peggy two years prior in an automobile accident. Micah Cooper runs the ranch that has been in the family for 86 years. He is the same age as Sky, and someone she has had a crush on since 9th grade. Noah Cooper is Micah’s estranged older brother, he left Montana for Atlanta when Micah was 11 years old. Sam Cooper is their late Grandfather, his Will set this entire story into motion. Annie is their late mother’s sister, she is the backbone that holds the ranch and family together. Morgan Richardson was the woman that Micah had dated for two years but turned down his proposal, she left but has returned.
I received a gifted copy of this book for an honest review. I read so many books, but it has been ages since I was so emotionally moved by a story as I have been by The Rose Ring.
