|Author Elaine Stock|
Have you ever been in a situation, for better or worse, unable to go back but unsure of whether you can move forward?
All Isabelle, the heroine in Always With You, wants is to be loved without conditions. She’s eighteen, has healed from a health setback, and after losing her mom years ago and being raised by an emotionally distant father and grandmother, she wants her Prince Charming. In her mind, she doesn’t care what faith or race or background he is. She’s certain that when her heart tells her whom this destined man is, she’ll recognize him.
Love, in the very real body of an attractive young man, pays a needed visit just in time to call him a true hero! Tyler intervenes when a gang of punky teens has less than stellar plans for Isabelle. But, many eyes around her small Adirondack town, let alone her own dad, are suspicious of the community, The Faithful, where Tyler lives. She’s forewarned of possible dangers, but chooses to see only the Wonderful in Tyler, and that’s with a Capital W.
What causes a fairly intelligent woman to fall for a man that society sees as less desirable?
In Isabelle’s case:
- Longing for close family and faith she lacked growing up, Isabelle doesn’t want to repeat that heartache for the rest of her life. In Tyler, she has a strong man who isn’t afraid to take a stand, believes in God, and is devoted to his siblings and community.
- Tyler is orphaned, and has more responsibilities—both to family and community—than someone his age should have. Nor has he had the traditional opportunities (like college or career) that usually come along when connected from a more supportive family. Isabelle empathizes with Tyler and feels his anguish. She believes she can be the one to make a difference in his life.
- She and Tyler are young. Together, they can enjoy the rest of their lives. They both want love, a real family bond, and faith in a God who wants them—all missing tickets from their childhood. Determined, and with headstrong tenacity, their minds and more importantly, their hearts, tell them that their union is meant to be.
Enter the unknown, aka tension or obstacles to their Happily Ever After. It’s not until Isabelle marries Tyler and is pregnant with their first child that she slowly comes to learn that Tyler and the community she now lives in have deceived her by making her think that they are kind and morally right folks.
But, Isabelle loves Tyler. Isn’t that all that counts? Yet, with a baby on the way, she must make the most important decision of her life, even if it’s the most heart-ripping one she’s ever faced.
