Light the Fire

Ms. Manners has written a story in which you can't help but fall in love with her characters. Each character has their own story and each is trying to find some love and peace within their hearts. Although each one is struggling to allow God into their life, the one person I really hoped would find the most healing was Rena. She had a troubled past that caused her to be cautious around people and once I found out the reason why she was so protective of herself, my heart bled for her. If you're looking for a story that allows you to open your heart to characters that feel like your friends, than look no further. I highly recommend this story and look forward to reading more from this author.

Book Blurb for Light the Fire

A choice, a tragedy, and life-altering consequences…

When Rena Dunigan flees New York City and her dream of becoming a Broadway performer, she returns to her hometown harboring a life-altering secret and the shame of a shattered past. When her friend talks her into helping build a house through the local Shelter the Homeless program, Rena meets Cody and his mischievous Saint Bernard. Cody is dealing with a devastating loss of his own, yet his gentleness and patience melt Rena's resolve never to trust—or to love—again.

But what will Cody think when he learns the consequences of Rena's past? Will he reject her, or can she trust that love will heal hurting hearts and forever bind them together?
