Love on the Mend

Karen Witemeyer
A Historical Western Romance Short Story From Bestselling Author Karen Witemeyer

After serving as a doctor during the War Between the States, Jacob Sadler wants nothing more than to establish a quiet country practice in rural Texas. But he knows he'll never find peace until he buries the pain of his past. To that end, he accepts a job in Cold Spring, Texas--the town he's avoided for seventeen years--and discovers his past is definitely still alive and kicking.

When a new doctor arrives in town and saves her brother's leg, Mollie Tate quickly puts him on a hero's pedestal. But then the new doc insults her "Uncle" Curtis. Years ago, Curtis Sadler rescued Mollie when no one else cared. How could he possibly be the villain the new doctor believes him to be?

Jacob doesn't know what to make of the young woman who assists him like a seasoned nurse one minute only to take a strip out of his hide the next. Yet the sparks that fly between them make him feel more alive than he has in a long time. As respect for his young nurse turns into something deeper, can he set aside the pain from his past to embrace this new love, or are some sins too big to be forgiven?

Sweet
4 stars By Hannah, Jun 29 2015
This was a really sweet novella, which didn't feel like a novella. Some novellas feel stunted, as if the characters could have been more developed but this one never did. I enjoyed reading Jacob's story (after meeting him as a boy in Karen Whitmeyer's novel Full Steam Ahead). It was fun, it had me laughing, but it was also a good reminder of the value of life and the absolute importance of forgiveness. But yeah, mostly just sweet!

Sweet Novella
4 stars By Jacqui, Mar 01 2015
This sweet short novella is a sequel to Full Steam Ahead. It is the continuing story of Jacob the young boy that the Thorton's take in as their own in Full Steam Ahead. Jacob is now a man returning to his home town to face his past. In typical Karen Witemeyer fashion he meets up with a rather spirited female, Mollie, who walks him through this journey.  An encouraging and funny story.
