Book Review: To The Farthest Shores

From The Back:

The unpredictability of her upbringing prepared army nurse Jenny Bennett to face any challenge at the Presidio Army base, but the sudden reappearance in her life of the dashing naval officer who broke her heart six years ago is enough to rattle even her.

Lieutenant Ryan Gallagher is one of the few men in the world qualified to carry out a daring government mission overseas--an assignment that destroyed his reputation and broke the heart of the only woman he ever loved. Honor-bound never to reveal where he was during those years, he can't tell Jenny the truth, or it will endanger an ongoing mission and put thousands of lives at risk.

Ryan thinks he may have finally found a solution to his impossible situation, but he needs Jenny's help. While her loyalty to her country compels her to agree, she was too badly hurt to fall for Ryan again despite his determination to win her back. When an unknown threat from Ryan's past puts everything at risk--including his life--can they overcome the seemingly insurmountable odds stacked against them in time?
My Reflections:
Ah my heart, what a fantastic story! Engaging plot, packed with lovable characters that are so real to life you forget this is fiction. I can always count on Elizabeth Camden to wow me! She does not write mere fluff, her stories extol life's journeys with a God who is bigger than our sin and strife. Yes, I certainly recommend this one friends.

This is a love story about two people who had a deep and powerful love, then sin crept in, and left a path of destruction in its wake. God has a way of taking that destruction and turning it into beauty. 

Camden displays human messiness extraordinarily.
We all are scrambling to get it right, none of us has our ducks perfectly lined up, and I admire an author who has the courage to write authentically, yet respectfully. 
This book also has some fascinating historical detail woven in, along with tidbits of untucked threads, leading me to believe that there will be a sequel to this book.

If you are searching for a book that is not mere fluff and romantic wanderings, Camden's "To the Farthest Shores" may just be the one!
