Award-winning author Beth Wiseman has hit the best-sellers lists with each and every one of her releases, and her latest, The House that Love Built, is sure to follow. Set in the small town of Smithville, Texas, readers will fall in love with the entire community, making it more than just another story of “boy meets girl,” but also a realization that God puts certain people in our paths for a reason.
Brooke Holloway is focused on raising two young kids on her own after the death of her husband, the only man she’s ever loved. Although broken-hearted, she clings to God in her sorrow, believing He is ultimately in control. Caught up in running the family hardware store in order to support the family, the last thing on her mind is falling in love. However, she’s intrigued when a stranger moves to town and buys the old Hadley mansion. She’s always heard that house holds a secret — maybe even a treasure — and she can’t wait to see inside. When she meets the new owner and they spend time together, she can’t deny the attraction. Could God be giving her another chance at happiness?
Owen Saunders bought the Hadley place for one reason — to spite his cheating ex-wife who always wanted to restore an old house in Smithville. Now he’s going to do it without her in an effort not only to rebuild the house, but also himself after a painful divorce. But if anything needs restoration, it is Owen’s heart. Then he meets Brooke and her kids and finds himself tempted by love. Can he bring himself to trust a woman again? Can a mysterious house bring them together for a second chance at love? As they learn more about Owen’s house, one thing becomes obvious: God has put them together for a reason.
