Scottish widower Ian MacLean is plagued by a mischievous grannie, bitter regrets, and an ache for something he’ll never have again. His only hope for freedom is to bring his grannie’s sister home from America. But first, he’ll have to convince her young companion, Emily Chapman, to let the woman go.
Emily devotes herself to foster youth and her beloved Aunt Grace. Caring for others quiets a secret fear she keeps close to her heart. But when Ian appears, wanting to whisk Grace off to Scotland, everything Emily holds dear is at risk.
Like There’s No Tomorrow is an amusing yet heart-tugging love story about two kind, single caretakers, two quirky, old sisters bent on reuniting, and too many agendas. It’s a tale of family, fiery furnaces, faith, and the gift of each new day.
Camille Eide has written a book that is heartwarming, fun and inspiring. It’s one of those books who’s character’s capture your imagination and heart. I liked the way she developed each character and made them real and believable. I laughed at Ian chasing his granny driving the truck, and cried with Emily as she learned about her future. Aunt Grace and Grandma Maggie are quite the pair. I liked how this book was not all serious and had many lighthearted moments. It’s a book about living life as if it was your last and the joy of each new day.
Even though this book was fiction, There was many lessons that the reader can learn as well. I kept thinking about something my dad taught me when I was younger. My little sister had borrowed something without asking and I had gotten upset about it.
My dad made a fist and said to me ‘ you should not hold your things close to you.’ He opened his fist and said, ‘instead you need to hold your things out like this and let go, and freely give of your stuff.’ It can be hard and one of those things we work on throughout our life.
🙂 I recommend this book to everyone!
