Review by Orchid

Orchard Hill Residents – lock up your hearts!

Pansy Parker and Misty Green are rivals in romance. Each believes she is the town’s best matchmaker. Now, they’re going to settle the question for once and for all. They’re keeping track to see who can make the most matches in a year’s time.

No heart is safe in Orchard Hill – not even their own.

Shaun Thiesen’s jealous nature and quick temper drove his wife Patience away. Since then he’s been through counseling with Pastor Isaac and gotten involved with the church. Now he’s just waiting for his second chance. When he learns Patience is visiting her parents for Thanksgiving, he thinks this may be it. In only a few precious days he has to win back his wife, and suddenly the stakes are raised when Patience tells him he’s going to be a father. Can Shaun show convince her they deserve a second chance?

Losing Patience is a romance with a difference. Sweet and inspirational, this story runs the full gamut of feelings from despair to love.

Shaun feels betrayed by his parents and takes his frustrated anger out by emotionally attacking his wife Patience. Poor Patience is unable to cope with her husband’s anger and flees to stay with an aunt. Once again Shaun has been abandoned. To save his marriage he must first sort out his life and get his anger under control.

Patience only intends to stay away long enough to give herself a breathing space but circumstances delay her return. Her parents dislike Shaun and try everything to separate the couple, but Patience has a secret that will decide whether or not her marriage to Shaun will survive.

This is the second Orchard Hill Romance I’ve read and I enjoyed this one just as much as the first one. The story may be classed as inspirational but is a true romance with a depth of emotion often missing from longer romance books. I recommend Losing Patience if you are looking for a short, meaningful book to read.
