Winner of the 2018 Christy Award Book of the Year
After a devastating heartbreak three years ago, genealogist and historical village owner Nora Bradford has decided that burying her nose in her work and her books is far safer than romance in the here and now.
Unlike Nora, former Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor recipient John Lawson is a modern-day man, usually 100 percent focused on the present. But when he's diagnosed with an inherited condition, he's forced to dig into the secrets of his past and his adoption as an infant, enlisting Nora to help him uncover the identity of his birth mother.
The more time they spend together, the more this pair of opposites suspects they just might be a perfect match. However, John's already dating someone and Nora's not sure she's ready to trade her crushes on fictional heroes for the risks of a real relationship. Finding the answers they're seeking will test the limits of their identity, their faith, and their devotion to one another.
Wade begins her new Bradford Sisters series by introducing Nora Bradford, a self-described academic in her less-than-highbrow family. Nora and her sister Britt are participating in a staged emergency situation when she meets John Lawson. She is immediately attracted to John, drawing him into her storybook romantic fantasies, and becomes disappointed after discovering that John is already in a relationship. But the attraction is clearly more than one-sided after John recruits Nora to help him find his birth mother. The journey brings Nora and John together, allowing them the time to learn about one another. While the story is Nora's, Wade successfully develops each character, especially Nora's two sisters, Britt and Willow, who have particularly distinct personalities and voices. Though they did not plan on falling in love, Nora and John keep gravitating towards each other. When a connection from their past is revealed, both are forced to face the pain and uncertainty that they had been trying to avoid. Britt and Willow step in as a strong support system to Nora and provide much-needed humor. Wade starts this new series off strong, introducing characters that are easy to invest in.
