Christian Inspirational Romance — Contemporary
Rating: 4 Cups
Karen Walker has been a widow for five years. She truly misses her husband Jason; in fact she talks to him at all times and even carries his ashes in an urn wherever she goes. And now she is embarking on a journey to take a trip that they had taken before Jason’s death only now he is in an urn.
Ben Carrey is a hitchhiker that Karen picks up along the way. He feels an instant connection to this beautiful woman who is traveling with her dead husband. The more time he spends with her the more he feels he wants to be in her life.
Karen’s children are afraid that their mother will not move on from their father’s death. They are also unsure of this trip she is taking but offer their support and love and even give her a blessing to be open to finding someone new in her life. Is God behind this chance meeting, and maybe even Jason letting Karen know it is ok to move on?
What a sweet and tender romance. It actually hits close to home as my mother is a young widow and even though my father was her one true love, her children can only hope that there is another chance at love for her. In The Last Long Journey Ms. Lattimer shows concern from both Karen’s children as well as Karen’s own thoughts and tells a wonderful story you will not want to miss out on.
