Review: A Soft Place to Fall (Stories from the Ridge Book 1) by Liz Flaherty


Early McGrath doesn't want freedom from her thirty-year marriage to Nash, but when it's forced upon her, she does the only thing she knows to do - she goes home to the Ridge to reinvent herself.
Only what is someone who's spent her life taking care of other people supposed to do when no one needs her anymore? Even as the threads of her life unravel, she finds new ones - reconnecting with the church of her childhood, building the quilt shop that has been a long-time dream, and forging a new friendship with her former husband.
The definition of freedom changes when it's combined with faith, and through it all perhaps Early and Nash can find a Soft Place to Fall.


My Review:

Learning to love again. 

Early and Nash have divorced after being married thirty years.  Their children are grown and on their own and they have somehow forgotten what their marriage meant to them.  Early decides to return to her hometown and reunites with her old friends and starts a new life for herself.  But she never forgets the love she once shared with Nash.  Nash has moved on too, but when he needs someone the most, he still turns to Early.  The love Early and Nash once had is still there.  They just need to find their way back to each other.

This is a powerful Christian story filled with love and hope and a family that is always there when you need them.  I found this to be one of those books that will stay with you a long time after reading it.  I would recommend it to anyone who loves a nice feel-good story with a happy ending.
