Here For You is the second installment in the Family is Forever series. Three Sisters has taken on the responsibility of taking care of their Aunt Tweet, each one is taking over the role as caregiver for six months at a time. In this story it is Rachel‘s turn and Aunt Tweets health is declining very rapidly and it is taking a toll on Rachel. Tabitha, Rachel’s sister puts a call in for Minister Nicholas Adams to visit her aunt and sister for prayer. When visiting the two he finds himself attracted to Rachel and ends up becoming her caregiver.
Just like the first story in this series it really hit home and touched my heart tremendously. I understand what these sisters went through and how it affected them. I enjoyed this story very much, it was very relatable and had some funny parts. I believe everything happens for a reason and people are in our lives for a season and reason. Thanks to her sister Rachel was given Minister Adams at the right season just when she needed him when her faith was starting to waiver. This was an emotional storyline, as caregivers we give so much to everyone else and we forget what we need. Great job author Pat Simmons. I highly recommend this series.
