A New Beginning for Nanci
by Vikki McCombie
On the day Nanci discovers she’s going to have a baby, she receives the devastating news every Navy SEAL’s wife never wants to hear. Her husband’s death sends her into the depths of despair. As she struggles to accept, she’s grateful for the support from the officer assigned to her.
Will she turn to God letting Him show her the path to a new beginning, or will fear of loving and losing keep her locked in the past?
When Lt. Daniel Foster’s appointed to assist a SEAL’s widow, the last thing he expects is a woman who can break through the barricade guarding his heart. As he helps her with the aftermath, he offers her a shoulder to lean on, but would like to offer more.
Should he allow their friendship to blossom and trust God will show him lowering his defenses is the only way to love?
I can’t help but gush over this wonderful story about two lovers who found their way to each other’s heart after the death of a comrade. The day Nanci Bowman discovered that she’s pregnant, was the same day she learned about her NAVY Seal husband’s death. Oh the pain and suffering she felt was terrible, I could tell. It wasn’t always easy listening to news about a loved one’s death, right. Nanci Bowman surprised me though. She’s one tough cookie, gentle woman in the outside but strong and determined on the inside. I loved how she continued to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I loved how she got through it all with a baby in her womb.
And I loved how Lt. Daniel Foster was there for her through thick and thin. Appointed to assist the widow’s situation and care for her needs the best that he could, Dan couldn’t help but admire Nanci’s resilience and loving heart. I loved how his faith with the Lord never wavered, and had influenced Nanci to believe again in the Lord. Their moments together were heartfelt, heart-rending, heart-stopping and yes, also heart-breaking. I couldn’t ask for a better man than Dan.
Vikki McCombie surprised me too with this new book of hers. Nanci & Dan’s beautifully written story shot through my heart. Reminded me of my brother who was also in the Navy. Reminded me of those military wives who had been through a lot when it came to honoring their husbands. Vikki wrote a fast paced novel that really melted my heart.
