White Doves

by Shannon Taylor Vannatter
Hayden Winters is raising his paraplegic nephew, Brady, when he meets Laken, the attractive new postmaster in town. Turns out, however, that her brother is Brady's father who left town and Hayden's sister before the boy was born and claims never to have heard about her death or their son. Now that he knows, he wants to move to another state with the boy but Hayden is completely against the idea. And Laken and her brother want nothing to do with their rather notorious parents. As Hayden and Laken begin to fall in love, he wonders whose side she is on. The dilemma is solved only when people give up their rights and begin showing love and compassion to others.

This was a fun book to read—and the funny thing is that I was filling in for the local postmaster when I read it! The story was interesting and the characters were well-developed and lifelike, except for Hayden who was a little too perfect. I couldn't imagine how the problem of what would happen with Brady would be solved but I was glad when it all worked out without anything strange happening to the story. The lessons of forgiveness and selflessness come through clearly without being preachy.

Thank you to the author for sending me a copy to review. Visit her website at and her facebook page at
