❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Jodi Chapman has a real dilemma on her hands. A single parent to her 4-yr. old autistic son Tyler, she wants desperately for him to attend Wonders Primary, a school with staff that’s trained to give specialized help to children like Tyler. The problem is tuition is $16,000 a semester and Jodi doesn’t have that kind of money. She can’t even count on her low-life ex-husband who abandoned his family because he couldn’t deal with having a son with autism. To make matters worse he’s looking to decrease his child support payments. Just when things are beginning to look hopeless Jodi’s boss assigns her to a project that involves buying up farms for the company, Midland Corp., from struggling farmers in her home town of Cedar Bay, Vermont. If she can acquire 5,000 acres of farmland she will get a bonus and promotion that will enable Tyler to attend Wonders Primary. But in the process will she lose the respect of her former boyfriend and nemesis, Daniel Gleason, whom she left behind in Cedar Bay 10 years prior without explanation?
Karen Rock wrote a beautiful wholesome romance story of love, redemption and healing. While conflicts in life are inevitable, help can be attained when we’re willing to look in the right direction and accept it. His Hometown Girl will tug at your heartstrings with its intimate look at autism, the value of close-knit community in times of hardship, and the realization that things are not always what they may appear to be; that assuming what seems to be the obvious is not always right.
If you’re looking for a sweet romance read with a little conflict, a bit of stubbornness and just the right amount of love, you’re sure to enjoy His Hometown Girl. I loved it!!
