Artistic and a little bohemian, Elle Garvey loves life in small town Beaufort, South Carolina where she owns an art gallery. Engaged to Jeremiah Franklin, a pastor who oozes confidence and charisma, Elle is happy and in love. Willing to sacrifice her dreams to follow Jeremiah’s call to a large church in Dallas, Elle heads to Texas only to find her fiancé’s focus has switched from her to his new congregation.
Returning to Beaufort, Elle finds her heart confused and her home rented out to a NYC lawyer and his little girl, still grieving the loss of his wife. Heath McCord’s pain and his uncertain yet passionate parenting appeal to Elle, as does his gentle encouragement to pursue her true passion ~ painting.
Can Elle follow her heart in love and life?
I love Rachel Hauck’s books! Engaging characters, entertaining storylines and wonderful prose imprint each novel and make them exceptional. I am delighted to say Love Starts With Elle continues that trend. Elle Garvey, first introduced in Sweet Caroline, takes centre stage, a painter whose artistic talents are on hold as a result of a professor’s harsh criticism years earlier. Jeremiah is a good man, overwhelmed by the demands of a large pastorate and Heath McCord is devoted dad, fearful of his ability to raise a little girl without her mum ~ Elle’s emotions are torn. Rachel infuses each character with complexity, appealing characteristics and genuine weaknesses making Elle’s journey authentic and captivating as she is brought to a crossroads in love, life and faith. Catch up on Caroline’s life through emails with Elle and be strengthened in your faith through Miss Anna’s love of God as Elle kneels with her in the prayer chapel. Simply put, Love Starts with Elle is a beautiful story that will engage your heart, soul and mind.
