Let it Snow by Yvonne Lehman

My book review today is on the Heartsong Presents book Let it Snow by Yvonne Lehman. I really enjoyed this book. It's a cute story about young love, rejection, and God's plan working in your life. I loved the ending, It was great.

Nancy Walker loved Woodrow Lawing from the time she was ten, Woody was her brother's best friend. At age seventeen, she confessed her love and kissed the twenty-three year old. Woody gave her a lecture on how she was too young to know love. She was in high school and he was in college. She felt that meant she needed to wait for him, after all his kiss proved he loved her. Several years later, she got pretty much the same story, now he was in a masters program and couldn't get involved with her, she was only a freshman. Woody did love her but refused to tell her so because he had years of work to finish before he could support her. Now in a doctorate program he finally wrote a letter telling of his love. Thrilled she wrote back and proposed. Neither one of them heard from the other again.

Nancy was heartbroken when Woody didn't answer her proposal but went on with her life. A good Christian man came into her life and even though she confessed her school girl crush for another, he loved her and won her over. They were married, he became a pastor, and they had a daughter but Ben died of heart problems. So now in her early forties she was a widow, her daughter getting married and going into mission work, and Nancy's life was over. She came home to help her mother when her best friend became ill. (Woody's mother) How do you face someone who had rejected you all those years ago?

Woody had become the professor at a college and was living the life he once dreamed of but had never gotten over Nancy's rejection. How was he suppose to face her now? He needed to care for his mother but everywhere he turned was the love of his life.

Great story, like I said I loved how Yvonne handled the end. You just need to read it and find out how it worked out.
