Former Marine Jake Porter has far deeper scars than the one that marks his face. He struggles with symptoms of PTSD, lives a solitary life, and avoids relationships. When Lyndie James, Jake's childhood best friend, lands back in Holley, Texas, Jake cautiously hires her to exercise his Thoroughbreds. Lyndie is tender-hearted, fiercely determined, and afraid of nothing, just like she was as a child. Jake pairs her with Silver Leaf, a horse full of promise but lacking in results, hoping she can solve the mystery of the stallion's reluctance to run. Though Jake and Lyndie have grown into very different adults, the bond that existed during their childhood still ties them together. Against Jake's will, Lyndie's sparkling, optimistic personality begins to tear down the walls he's built around his heart. A glimmer of the hope he'd thought he'd lost returns, but fears and regrets still plague him. Will Jake ever be able to love Lyndie like she deserves, or is his heart too shattered to mend?

A lovely story, the main characters of a man, a woman, a handicapped girl. associated family and friends and a horse and how their lives evolve is heart warming and an ideal read for a cold winter day.

I have very mixed feelings about this book. The author's use of language was great, but there were two subplots that added bulk and were never resolved.

In general there was a lot that could have been edited out that would have made the story tighter. My theory that any book that takes more than 300 pages to tell the story needs editing proved true for me. I had the book for 9 weeks and barely finished before it was due. Just couldn't get excited about it.

Oh, and in the end she has the characters conclude it is such a rare and special love—the romance was never really developed. They were friends as kids and then were just 'in love'.

A Love Like Ours is a fictional, faith-based romance and best enjoyed with a mug of hot chocolate by the fireside. It’s heartwarming with a touch of faith.

Becky Wade does a marvelous job in developing her characters. Themes of healing and redemption are woven nicely into the story, and the horse, Texas setting is fun. Every girl will love Leslie for her kind and adventurous spirit. Then, handsome, but wounded, Jake will surely capture the reader's heart. This is not an overly fast paced book, but many enjoyable scenes make this book a great read.
