SUMMARY In Redemption, Oklahoma, a young boy is found huddled in a Dumpster, clutching a Christmas book Scared and refusing to speak, he captures undercover agent Kade McKendrick s guarded heart Kade brings the child home until he can track down his family and his story All Kade has is a name, Davey, and the boy s trust of sweet, pretty teacher Sophie Bartholomew With her kindness and faith, Sophie helps both the boy and the battle scarred cop to smile again And as they uncover the mystery of a very special child, a family is formed just in time for Christmas.REVIEW This story is heartwarming and the setting of Redemption Oklahoma is charming There were serious moments as Kade remembers his previous dealings with exploited trafficked children, yet tender moments with both Davey and Sophie The author does a good job of developing all 3 of these characters I especially liked Kade s great aunt,Ida June and her gems of wisdom and old sayings This is the first book I have read in the Redemption River series but I will definitely return to this series Linda Goodnight writes easy to read, clean books that definitely carry a faith thread FAVORITE QUOTES Love is its own excuse for being No matter what happens, even if the other person never loves you in return, loving is always a good thoing Love fills you up and makes you a better person every single time love never fails Whether the other person accepts it and returns the feelings or not love never fails I thought He d God let me down Bad things happened to kids and He didn t stop them I think I get it now He hated what happened as much as I did. Sweet but little substance. Linda Goodnight is one of the two authors who first got me hooked on the Love Inspired line of books the other being Jillian Hart Her stories are heartwarming, the settings charming love the town of Redemption , and the characters well drawn out and easy to connect with Kade, staying temporarily with his aunt in Redemption, is the ultimate wounded warrior, an undercover cop who s faith has been shaken by the human horrors he has witnessed on the job in Chicago Sophie is an optimistic and upbeat teacher who loves Christmas and winter and snow and pretty much everything that comes along Including a lost little boy and a lost man, both of whom she longs to take care of One is eager to accept her love, one is not.As Kade throws himself wholeheartedly into the search for Davey s family and for answers to how and why the little boy ended up alone in a dumpster, cold and hungry and unable to talk, he also finds himself doing some soul searching about his own life and whether he really wants to go back to Chicago after the holidays Kade is a wonderful hero who I was a little in love with from the first chapter The banter between Kade and Sophie was amusing and I smiled a lot while reading this book. Sweet little story about a boy found in a dumpster and the man and woman who come together to help him. This book made me cry but had a really good storyline I really enjoyed it Davey is a little boy that was found in a local dumpster and the book centers around trying to find his parents As the story unfolds you can see a town coming together to help this young child Sophie the school teacher and Kade, the policeman were there to help him along the way Really enjoyed this book This is one of those books that if you tell too much of the story you would have tons of spoilers Read the book and check it out for yourself.
