My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received from Singing Librarian Book Tours to review
Genre: Christian Fiction/Romance

Book Description:  One word can change a life.
Sarah Sharpe has grown up as a carpenter’s daughter, knowing only the rough and work-heavy world of her father’s blue-collar profession. Abandoned by her mother as a baby, she’s lived twenty-one years content to drive nails at her dad’s side. Following her father into the world of construction was a natural path, and she took it without a second thought. But a harsh comment about her “butch” appearance sends her on a search for identity.
Enter handsome and easygoing Jesse Chapman, the roofer she meets on her first foray into volunteer work for Homes For Hope. In every way, the quirky man is her opposite—confident, a people kind of guy, and most importantly, happy. His likable qualities continue to draw her in, and for some reason he keeps coming back to her. But they can’t be more than friends—he’s made that crystal clear. Except for a handful of times…and the confusion is driving her crazy.
Sarah’s quest for self-definition becomes more tangled than she ever imagined, and she discovers that the journey will take her deeper than clothes and makeup. Filling the void in her heart becomes an obsession she cannot escape. How far is she willing to go to discover who she really is?

My thoughts: This is a beautiful story about faith, love, hope, redemption, forgiveness, and trust. (I am sure many other messages could be found it this book.)

Sarah is a young lady who is a construction worker. She works with her father and uncle, it is the life she knows and was raised to. A rude comment about her being a "butch" girl begin a growing process. She begins to wonder what she has been missing and desires to look more like a woman. Her journey unlocks her potential and opens her heart to Jesse and his desire for her to know the Savior.

Jesse is a patient teacher. He wants to have a relationship with Sarah, but his faith is important to him and he wants a partner he can share his love of the Gospel with. The book has many frustrating moments for both Sarah and Jesse. The message of love is a powerful force in this book.

This is a Christian Fiction romance.
