Erin Bryce and her best friend Sharlene start a new wedding business when she receives the phone call from her step-mother, Delores that her father has had a stroke. Upon arriving to the Hidden Cottage, Erin is confronted with memories from her past. Erin leaves her father as he regained his health and continued to live her life. Her son Jordan got engaged to Sierra! Yes, our Sierra, our forever friend! So lovely! I would like to hear the Sierra side of the wedding planning and such..( Robin here is an idea for another book! )
On Jordan and Sierra's wedding day, Erin learns her father is not coming to the wedding. Upon further questioning of Delores, Erin finds out her father has had several strokes and has become paralyzed. Erin and her husband rush out to see her father. At that time they are left with several decisions and a series of unexpected events. Delores (stepmother) walks out of her sick father. Erin is left with the burden of taking care of her sick father. Will Erin's brother, Tony make amends with her father? In the mean time, " The Happiest Day" business of Erin and Sharlene is hanging by a thread. Will their friendship survive? Will their business thrive? Will Delores come back to her husband?
You will not be left disappointed. I cried my eyes out! The story of redemption, forgiveness and ever lasting friendship is all intertwined in " Cottage by the Sea." Ps.. Glenbrooke shows up in this story too! I love how Robin ties everything in this book!! You have outdone yourself again, Robin! What a wonderful book!
May God give you
For every storm, a rainbow
For every tear, a smile
For every care, a promise
and a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
a faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.
