Patricia Lee grabs your emotions in An Anchor for her Heart. Be prepared to feel anger, sadness, loneliness, and happiness with McKenna as she navigates raising an autistic child alone because her husband couldn’t handle the situation. Patricia Lee has woven knowledge from her family circumstances into the plot – an autistic daughter and a son who worked as an observer biologist for the National Marine Fisheries Service. The characters in the story are believable, probably because Lee writes what she knows. As the story unfolds readers will wonder how the story will end – there are several possibilities. I found the ending to be satisfying although I hope there is more to their story in books yet to come.
If there is an autistic child or marine biologist in your life or if you enjoy sweet clean romance, you may enjoy An Anchor for her Heart.
I would not hesitate to place An Anchor for her Heart in my k-12 Christian school library. It is appropriate for secondary students.
I want to thank JustRead Publicity Tours for the complimentary e-copy. This is my honest review of An Anchor for her Heart.
