The engaging and heartwarming third book in the Seasons of Redemption series is packed with mystery, romance and the power of knowing a person can redeem oneself by changing and becoming a better person.
Chicago, Illinois, 1866: Lorenna Fields is a nurse at Lakeview Hospital. She takes her job very seriously and knows not to get too involved with her patients, but at times that is really difficult. When a patient is admitted with no memory and has lost his sight due to an accident, Lorenna takes it upon herself to help him in any way she can. She has dubbed him Mr. Blackeyes, as his eyes are black as midnight. Mr. Blackeyes cannot remember who he is or where he is from and is frustrated because he is also blind; he feels as helpless as a newborn baby. With the help of his nurse, flashes of his life are coming back and he learns he was not a nice man. He knows he will need to change his way of thinking on a lot of things, including his belief in God. When a force from his past threatens his future and Lorenna, he must make some soul-searching decisions to make sure they each will have what they want. (REALMS, Jan., 304 pp., $12.99)
