5.0 out of 5 stars Read it in one sitting.
Was thrilled to find a new Karey White book. I have read and loved every one of her books. As always the characters were real and well-developed. They are people I would love to know. But Karey's stories are also compelling and this one was exceptional. I’ve always been in awe of the kind of unselfish love it takes to relinquish a child so that it can have a better life than you are able to provide. Karey did an excellent job of conveying just how difficult and heart-wrenching it is. I LOVED this book. Will recommend it to friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful story of hope out of darkness.
Celia is running from her life in Illinois to Sisters, Oregon. Truly friendless and hopeless, she is shocked to have a stranger, Pearl, waiting for her at the bus station. Not only Pearl, but Silas Toller as well. A story dealing with some tough issues. Watch Celia bloom under the growing love of Silas and his Aunt Nancy’s wonderful care of her. Silas was such a great guy and a hero forest ranger with a stutter, making him lack in the confidence department. This was such a lovely and beautiful story. It started out a little slow at first, but before too long the characters had me wrapped up in their world.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this story!
Silas and Celia both have had hard lives and I think my favorite line from the book will help you see the attitude they both have about it! "It isn’t a contest to see whose life is harder. Everyone has hard things. I don’t want you to feel sorry for me.” I love that they both have kind of an instant understanding of each other and are slowly able to build a friendship! All in all great book! Can't wait for the next one in this series!

5.0 out of 5 Great start to the Matchmaker series!
I've been a fan of hers since reading "My Own Mr. Darcy" a couple of years ago. Since then, I buy everything she writes. This book really appealed to one's emotions, making you want to cry one minute and put on a big smile the next. I was very content with the ending. I will be looking forward to more of Pearl's matchmaking adventures!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful story.
What a beautiful story! Celia's past had me feeling concerned for her to find love and stability in her life. Such a courageous girl deserved happiness after all she had been through. Silas was equally pulling on my heart strings. He is sweet and unassuming. I was rooting for the two of them to get together the entire book. Karey managed to help these characters find the happiness and love they both deserved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book!
Broken Things to Mend a delight to read. We all go through difficulties in life and it's easy to look at others and judge what we think we see. I loved how this story illustrates how important it is to be kind to others, even when it seems they don't deserve it. We just don't know what other people are going through. This was an incredibly sweet love story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very sweet story.
This was such a sweet story. Both Celia and Silas have heartbreaking pasts, each in very different ways. Both are a little apprehensive of the other. But slowly, over time they open up to one another and a friendship develops, and eventually leads to more. I loved the ending, but I could have used a little wrapped up a little too quickly for me.
