I just finished Twice Loved by Wanda Brunstetter. What a wonderful story. It was the first book I have read by Wanda that was not Amish. I enjoyed very much. Its a story of love and dealing with a death of a spouse. Bev was my favorite character because she was a strong woman taking care of her six-year daughter. This is a wonderful story and I encourage you to read it. It was also based around the holidays and that just adds to the story for me. Pick it up and enjoy!!!
This was a quick read and keeps your interest all the way to the last word. I love the story line between Bev and Dan. It is a very heart warming story. I would recommend this to a friend and will be getting a copy for my mother in law for Christmas.
Twice Loved is not the usual Wanda Brunstetter novel but refreshingly welcome. A very quick read with such a wonderful and inspiring story. Both main characters have lost spouses to death and are grieving in their own way. Dan is keeping his wife's toy store open while trying to also work in his photography studio. Bev is raising her young daughter while trying to make a living for the two of them in the post World War II period. When she loses her job, she shows up at Dan's store, Twice Loved, in response to an ad she saw in the paper. He hires her on the spot, partly in desperation, and so their lives begin intertwining in work, adventure, laughter and everyday situations. I agree with another reviewer that it reminds me of Grace Livingston Hill books that I grew up on. You won't go wrong spending an hour or two reading this delightful book.
