Travelers Rest

By Ann Tatlock

Published by Baker Publishing Group 2012


What would you do if in a split second your life was changed forever? The person you loved forever changed and no longer the man you used to know?

Could you handle the situation of your once fiance going to war a healthy man and returning a quadripoligic? Would you turn away? Would you stay by? Those are some of the questions that the main character Jane has to face when the love of her life returns from war a wounded soldier.

“New Contemporary Novel from an Award-Winning Author Jane Morrow has a dilemma. She”s engaged to Seth Ballantine, a member of the National Guard”s 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team, and he”s returned from Iraq severely wounded. Jane hasn”t seen him for nearly a year, and with trepidation, she heads to the VA hospital in Asheville, North Carolina, where he is being treated. Seth isn”t happy to see her. He”d asked her not to come. He wants to end the relationship. But Jane loves him, and despite his injury, she”s determined to convince him that they can have a life together. Her faith has never been strong, yet she hopes God will answer her prayers and tell her what to do. Beautifully written, Travelers Rest takes readers on a journey through pain and tragedy to a place of hope and redemption.”

Travelers Rest is the 9th book for author Ann Tatlock, and it contains twists and unexpected surprises. It is also a story of coming to faith, learning how sometimes there are things out of our control.

Tatlock writes in a clear manner and has well developed characters. The faith journey does not overwhelm the main storyline but works to move the story along and help the reader to question what would they do in a similar situation. It shows the real struggle that occurs in real life. Tatlock doesn’t hide the heartache or pain of the characters. I would put this on a summer reading list and I hope in the future to read more of Tatlock’s novels.
