“True To You” ~ Book Review

Aug 7, 2017 by

Welcome back to Rachel’s Back Talk! I’m so glad you could join me again. Today I am reviewing Becky Wade’s newest release, True To You.


As is my custom, if I could ask Becky one question about True To You it would be — “What made you want to write your main character as a quirky historian?” And if you want to know why I asked that question, I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out!


And without further ado, onto Rachel’s Back Talk!

From the Back Cover:

After a devastating heartbreak three years ago, genealogist and historical village owner Nora Bradford has decided that burying her nose in her work and her books is far safer than romance in the here and now.

Unlike Nora, former Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor recipient John Lawson is a modern-day man, usually 100 percent focused on the present. But when he’s diagnosed with an inherited condition, he’s forced to dig into the secrets of his past and his adoption as an infant, enlisting Nora to help him uncover the identity of his birth mother.

The more time they spend together, the more this pair of opposites suspects they just might be a perfect match. However, John’s already dating someone and Nora’s not sure she’s ready to trade her crushes on fictional heroes for the risks of a real relationship. Finding the answers they’re seeking will test the limits of their identity, their faith, and their devotion to one another.

This was my first book by Becky Wade and I loved it! Maybe it was the cover that drew me in — the girl, Nora, had such an old-fashioned way about her that it made me want to learn all about her story.

I truly fell in love with Nora and her story. Nora is trying to move past her broken engagement and so she tries to extend herself in what she loves to do. Nora is also a history-lover which gave her and I a common connection. I like that as she strove to help a client turned friend the truth about his background. She also had things to work with to help her find love again despite the hurt from her past.

John was such the hero — yet once we got to know him, we realized that he also had difficulties in his past he was working through. John’s story is one of redemption and it is a redemption that doesn’t come from proving oneself or from the love of a woman, but of the love and forgiveness of God.

And after this first book, I am so excited to continue the Bradford sisters stories!!

I received a free copy from the author. No review, positive or otherwise, was required — all opinions are my own.
