Buy from Amazon: Broken Things to Mend

Broken Things to Mend is part of a series, but is a Stand-Alone novel.

Celia has had a very hard life. Her mother died of an overdose; she’s been through the foster care, and is now a victim of rape. Trying to hold onto her good memories, Celia opens a map and narrows down the possibilities of finding a new place to settle down, to get away from it all and start fresh. Oregon is calling her name, with her suitcase and a backpack with her meager belongings she gets on the bus and drives west. Not knowing that a little feisty matchmaker has a man waiting for her in Sisters, Oregon.

Pearl, the matchmaker, is determined not to give up. She doesn’t care how many times she makes Silas drive her out of his way. She knows Celia is coming on the bus and she knows Silas and Celia are meant for each other. They just need to be given a push in the right direction, but first they need to meet first. Silas is quiet and rarely talks, embarrassed with his stuttering and Celia has a past to hide, and is not ready to trust the people of Sisters. But with time, patience, and understanding the most precious of things that are broken can be mended.

I enjoyed this book immensely, it was clean and showed how quick people are to judge but are willing to learn how to put aside their prejudices to accept those around them. Celia is a very strong individual that has made a good life for herself, even with the horrible hand she’s been dealt in life. Silas learns to love Celia, no matter what her past was. The story was very easy to read and just flowed smoothly. I was able to read it in one afternoon, not wanting to put it down.
