Worth Waiting For by Sally Johnson, LDS Blog Tour & Giveaway!!!
Sophia thought she was over her broken heart, but the news that her roommate has eloped with Sophia's ex-husband hits the nineteen-year-old like a ton of bricks. She knows she should be fine with the unexpected revelation--after all, her boyfriend, Luke, is incredible, but it would seem her heart is not as resilient as she thought. And as Luke prepares to leave for his European study abroad, Sophia's feelings of fear and inadequacy threaten to overwhelm her.
A summer with her family in Las Vegas gives Sophia the time she needs but she still can't shake the questions haunting her, the questions that continually threaten to put more than physical distance between Luke and her. Is she really ready to jump into a new relationship when the last one ended so painfully? Will her divorce always define her? Is she the one with the problem?
As she wistfully observes others' love stories blossoming around her, Sophia must decide whether she's prepared to take another chance on love. Luke's return from Europe forces Sophia to confront the decision she's not sure she's prepared for--will her troubled past destroy the happy ending she's always dreamed of?
Worth Waiting For is an enjoyable read that young adult LDS readers will be able to relate to! The BYU lifestyle, roommates and being in the single-looking-for-eternal-marriage-market mode! I really liked Sophia's character, she was someone I felt I could really get behind and cheer her on to make the right choice! Even the supporting characters in this book left an impression on me, and that made for a life-like story! The blossoming love between Sophia and Luke was conveyed well and Sophia's baggage from her divorce was the true crux of this story. Can Sophia let all of that go? Join her on her crazy and emotional journey of finding love after divorce!
