Book Two Family Heirloom: Building love
Joined before God and family out of a sense of responsibility? Or love?
As a teenager, Justine Morris's escape from the pressures of caring for her dying father was stolen moments with Joshua Samuels. But their tender, desperate liaison found them facing teen pregnancy. Afraid of their Christian families' responses to the situation, they married quickly and built a life for their child.
But now that their daughter is ready to fly the nest, Justine can no longer ignore the truth: She and Joshua haven't had a real marriage for a long time. Maybe they never had one at all.
Joshua is only too aware that his busy, professional attorney wife is an independent woman who never really needed him. After nearly two decades of marriage, he's quit trying to get more than a piece of her at a time. Without their daughter holding them together, he knows the chasm between them will grow to epic proportions.
Their empty nest looming, they face the hard questions. Had they married in love...or out of a hasty sense of responsibility? Was it God's will for them to be together? And now, is it worth the effort to learn to become one as the Lord intends for a man and a woman...or better to simply let go?

5 Hearts! "Wiesner has, once again, exceeded my expectations. This author had my attention from the first page and she never lost it. The series of poignant scenes and tumultuous soul searching was incredibly heart-wrenching. She wrote as if she knew the subject from first-hand knowledge. To read this story was a highlight of my weekend and this is a book I will treasure. This book was an uplifting story with several surprises. There were tears, laughter, and unique conversations. I highly recommend this book. Great job." ~The Romance Studio 

4 Cups! "An incredible read. The emotions are wide-span throughout with in-depth characters that cling to the reader. This endearing, poignant story makes the heart leap with joy. I know when I read a book by Karen Wiesner I will never be disappointed. She composes captivating stories that enthrall and leave a lasting impression that is hard to forget. This story pricks at the heart and gives one hope that no matter how hard some matters appear, there is a solution. This book is an extraordinary read and a gem to be treasured." ~Coffee Time Romance & More 

4.5 Stars! "A delicate tale of raw emotions from a complicated marriage that is striving to succeed. Through the power of prayer and faith in one another, Justine and Joshua are able to find that love can conquer all. Karen Wiesner has written a riveting story about a married couple trying to find their way back into each other's lives. I thought this was beautifully written with an inspirational message throughout. The struggles facing Justine and Joshua are extremely well written with extraordinary detail of their vulnerabilities. Highly recommended." ~Single Titles 

4 1/2 Stars! "What an emotionally packed tale! I read this very quickly because I found myself so immersed in the lives. Once again this author allows you see inside the heads of our lead couple so you know just what they're thinking, and I really do enjoy that. I loved Joshua. He was all the things a good hero should be. I enjoyed watching this couple strive to redefine and save their marriage. There is a little twist near the end that was great. Great dialogue." ~Love 2 Read Novels Blog 

4 Stars! "I loved the quotes about love at the beginning of each chapter and have to say that the book would be worth getting just for those. As a bonus, the book brings a well-developed story too. I enjoyed the details from the mission trip--the poverty and the struggles in the hot Mexico sun. I appreciate the author's wonderful ability to create real characters. I enjoyed the depth of the characters and the presentation of the emotional issues. This story is good reading for those who enjoy real-to-life family issues." ~Reviews by Martha's Bookshelf
