One of the reasons I enjoy reading Autumn Macarthur’s work is she isn’t afraid to tackle tough relationship issues while adding a full measure of faith. A few topics in her stories include working with disabled children, dealing with Alzheimer’s disease, the challenges of being a caretaker, and being homeless. She manages to capture the struggle and despair the characters face, while also capturing the courage and strength that defines them as well. She brings a full measure of grace to her stories, guiding her flawed characters to look to the One who can give them rest, renewal, and hope for each day. Add a healthy dose of love and sweet romance and you have a story that touches the heart to the core.
A Lesson in Love, part of The Maclean series, introduces us to Sarah Browne who carries the weight of being the sole caretaker for her mother who has Alzheimer’s disease. Sarah tries to do what is best for her mother at all times, often sacrificing her own dreams to do it. Sarah is exhausted, as each day brings new challenges to keeping her mother safe, and redirecting her confusion. Enter Fraser Maclean. He wants a simple, uncomplicated life. He’s sees beauty in Sarah that draws him to her, but Sarah pushes him away trying to protect him from her burden. What will happen when Fraser discovers her secret and realizes Sarah’s life is more complicated than he expects? Be sure to read the book to find out!
Note to readers: Autumn Macarthur books are classified as novellas. This means they are generally shorter, condensed stories. I sometimes find myself thinking that events happen ‘too quickly’ in this type of book to be believable. Therefore I caution and encourage readers to focus on the story topic, not the speed at which events are occurring.
Also be aware that there are British words/spellings in the story and Ms. Macarthur has been generous to include a British dictionary for the readers reference. Enjoy!
