With You Here (Carrington Family #4) by Sarah Monzon Reviewed

About the book:

Title: With You Here
Author: Sarah Monzon
Series: Carrington Family
Publisher: Radiant Productions

Holy Roman Empire, 1527

In the wake of Martin Luther’s religious reforms, Princess Christyne von Heidelbraum is compelled by her sense of duty to help ease the burden of her people. When she stumbles upon a dying man in the woods, she vows to aid him—even when she discovers the arrow shot in his leg was put there by a heretic hunter. With both her physical and spiritual well-being in danger, she must choose between conscience or adhering to the laws of the Empire.

Present Day

Doubting her calling to become a hospital chaplain, Amber Carrington takes time off from her theology studies to volunteer with refugees in Germany. Working with children, making a difference, reconnecting with the conviction that once drove her—these were her expectations. An instant attraction to a professional soccer player wasn’t a part of the plan…and she can’t let him distract her from her purpose.
As a new Christian, Seth Marshall is determined to put his popularity as a world-renowned footballer to good use. Unfortunately, old habits and public opinions are hard to overcome. When he falls hard and fast for Amber Carrington, his former life—and her no-dating policy—may block his perfect shot for the woman he loves.

My Thoughts:

Have you ever wondered if you have a ministry God can use? Or one He's got for you? I asked that question for a lot of years and that is the question Amber Carrington is asking of herself which leads her to Germany. Using her ministry of writing Ms. Monzon shows Amber coming to realize what her ministry is.

I enjoyed getting to know Amber and Seth. Seth is a very swoony soccer player which I truly had fun reading about. 

Dual time novels are one of my favorite books to read. I enjoyed traveling to the reformation period getting a face to face view of what living during that turbulent time must have been like.

I'm only 50% invested in the Carrington family, since I've just read the last two books, but I love this family and I'm sad that the series is over. Family saga stories are a favorite and Ms. Monzon has created a family to love and remember.

I highly recommend this book!
