THE GREATEST GIFT

THE GREATEST GIFT

A ROMANCE THAT I ACTUALLY LIKED!  WELL, IT WASN’T ALL ABOUT THE ROMANCE AND THE WEDDING AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER.  SETH AND TRISTA BOTH HAVE COMPLICATED PASTS, THE PRESENT PRESENTS VERY DIFFICULT PROBLEMS, BUT THE FUTURE BEGINS TO LOOK BRIGHTER.

I ALSO READ LOSING FAITH (THE FIRST BOOK IN THE SETH AND TRISTA SERIES) A FEW YEARS BACK AND REALLY ENJOYED THAT.

PUBLISHER’S SYNOPSIS:

Never has Seth Storm’s life been this complete. His daughter, Faith, is now safely in his custody and care. And his career as a famous country musician is finally back on track. The only thing left for him to do is marry Trista Tilman, the woman who has stood by his side during the darkest moments of his life. After a beautiful lakeside proposal, Seth believes that his life is whole. That is, until he receives a call that threatens to destroy the foundation he has worked so hard to build.

Trista hasn’t always been lucky in love, but after meeting Seth, she knows he’s the right man for her and her daughter, Savannah. Strong and talented, he loves her the way she hasn’t been loved in a very long time. During a time when she had no one, he stepped in and helped her get back on her feet. And when he gets down on one knee, she knows that her life will never be the same. Little does she know that their largest battle has yet to come.

Nothing can prepare a parent for the journey Seth and Trista are about to embark upon as they face a road with unpredictable twists that will test them in ways they have never been tested, causing them to do things they never thought they would do.

The Greatest Gift is an emotional story about two people who believe they’ve finally found the peace they’ve been searching for only to discover that life has other plans for them.

The Greatest Gift is the second book in the Seth & Trista series, following Losing Faith and preceding The Final Encore. The Greatest Gift is Asher’s sixth novel. He is also the author of Insignificant Moments, Across the Creek, Beneath the Willow, and Close to Home.
