A man and woman were married for many years. Whenever there was a confrontation, yelling could be heard deep into the night. The old man would shout, “When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!”
Neighbours feared him. The old man liked the fact that he was feared. Then one evening, he died when he was 98. After the burial, her neighbours, concerned for her safety, asked: “Aren’t you afraid that he may indeed be able to dig his way out of the grave and haunt you for the rest of your life?”
The wife said, “Let him dig. I had him buried upside down…and I know he won’t ask for directions.”
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 1 Peter 1:18-19 NIV

I have read just about all of Debbie Macomber’s books. She is my ultimate FAVORITE author.
This book is a GREAT book as always. This book mainly deals with Lauren and “Rooster” Wayne. Funny name, but a GREAT character I think. Lauren Elliott has about had it with her boyfriend of 3 years and decides to break up with him. He doesn’t take this very well at all. Then, she meets “Rooster” Wayne from California. He comes to Seattle with his good friend Max so Max can see his wife, Bethanne. Anyway, Lauren starts seeing Rooster, and love is in the air.
There are other characters in the book as well. There is Lydia, Brad and Casey their daughter who they have adopted. She has issues and is having nightmares and they have to deal with these. Then Lydia’s mother becomes a problem as well.
This is all I am going to say about this book so I won’t spoil it for other people to read. This is one of my all time favorites by Debbie Macomber. Thanks, Debbie for giving us readers such good books. I love them all, but this one tops them all I think.
I will definitely suggest this book to my friends and family. I won’t say anything else about this book, you will love it.
I hope everyone who loves a good romantic story will pick up this book.
