For Your Love
Beverly Jenkins

Series: Blessings #6
Genre: Historical RomanceWomen's Fiction
Hardback: 304 Pages
Publication: April 28 2015
by William Morrow & Company

Return to Henry Adams, Kansas--an unforgettable place anyone would want to call home. . . .

Mayor Trent July and his wife, Lily, are enjoying life as newlyweds and embracing the challenges and joys that come with being adoptive parents to two wonderful boys. But fatherhood has inevitably forced Trent to think about his own birth mother.

Raised by his grandmother Tamar--and, in many ways, the good people of Henry Adams--Trent was blessed with a childhood full of love. But he can't help wondering what happened to the scared teenage girl who gave birth to him. And questions that he's never voiced are now begging to be answered: Who was she? Is she still alive? Why didn't she want him?

Trent has always believed that no good comes from dwelling on the past, especially when you have a loving family, a strong community, and folks who depend on you. But when the past comes to Henry Adams, Trent has no choice but to face it--and the woman who left him behind. The truth will shake his very being and everything he thought he knew about life, love, and the bonds that hold families together . . . but can also tear them apart.

My Thoughts

I've heard wonderful things about Beverly Jenkins and have been so excited for For You Love. I was supposed to review this for today, but I'm in the middle of Teach For America summer institute. Life has been really busy, but it has never been so fulfilling. I'll write a post on it soon. For now, if you read For Your Love, I would love to hear your thoughts on it!

  1. Thanks for featuring this book for the tour!

  2. Hallo, Hallo! :)

    I'm coming through the tour route tonight as I was so wicked happy to reside in Henry Adams for the short spell I was devouring FOR YOUR LOVE, I simply had to start hoppin' through the book blogosphere! I can understand how life took you up in it's tides - I felt like that a heap myself lately, as nearly every last review I've posted has a note about the lightning storms that wrecked havoc and chaos on my blogging / reading life! Oy.

    I'll try to remember to drop back and see what your thoughts are after you've had the pleasure to read the novel! OR if you could drop by my review and let me know you've posted it?! Either way, it will be keen to see what Henry Adams reveals to you!
