Second Chance Cinderella by Carla Capshaw

My book review today is on the Love Inspired Historical, Second Chance Cinderella. I haven't read any of Carla's books before but I did enjoy this one and hope to get a chance to read more of her work. It was a well written, heart warming story, and i enjoyed her characters. It will touch your heart.

Rose Smith was brought up in an orphanage, her best friend and true love promised to love her always and come back for her. When he left she was a young teen and soon found out she was pregnant. Thrown out of the orphanage she looked for work and finally married a dying man to give her child a name. He gave her a greater gift, the gift of salvation. She still waited for the love of her life but struggled to go on.

Sam Blackstone grew up in the orphanage but he had a gift when it came to numbers. A wealthy man took him under his wing and brought him to London. He later returns for his true love only to learn that she had married. Brokenhearted and bitter he returned to London to build a vast empire. One day on his way to work he spots a woman that reminds him of Rose. Following her he learns it is indeed his one time love. He asked that she work for him at a dinner party and then tries to make a pass at her and humiliate her.

Rose was to work in the city for a short time and then go back to her position in the country with her son. When Sam brought her to his home she is tormented by this man she once loved. Loosing her job because she had fallen asleep at Sam's she is forced to wander the streets trying to figure a out a way to return to her beloved son. Sam finds her, learns of his son, and then her life changes forever.

A great story of faith, forgiveness and restoration, I know you will love it. God bless you and have a great weekend.
