A Vow For Always

A Vow For Always

Part 6 of The Discovery

By Wanda E. Brunstetter

Published by Barbour, July 2013

This is the final installment in the six part "The Discovery" series, and Luke finally starts to regain significant parts of his memory. Piece by piece, the jigsaw puzzle of what had happened to him becomes clearer as the realisation dawns on him and Susan that they are developing strong feelings for each other. It seems inevitable that *someone* is going to end up hurt.

In the meantime, Luke's  wife Meredith continues her slow and gentle courtship with Jonah despite the concerns expressed by both her own and Luke's family when she eventually agrees to marry him. Luke's parents are especially worried that their access to their infant grandson might be curtailed by Meredith's new husband and are reassured when it becomes apparent this will not be the case. It looks like all is resolved, until one night, a stranger comes knocking at Meredith's family door and everything changes...

I did enjoy this episode but the last chapter did seem a little rushed and I would have loved to have found out what happened to all the wedding food and preparations - was everything called off or was there a joyful gathering to celebrate Luke's return? It would have been nice to have explored Susan and Jonah's feelings about the ending in more detail and although it was nice to have the epilogue, perhaps an additional chapter would have been more fulfilling for the reader.  Having said that, I did very much enjoy the book and will certainly read the series again.
