Celia is in desperate need of a change–a change of scenery, a change of pace, and a complete redo of all relationships. Not knowing what else to do, she opens a map, closes her eyes, and lets fate decide her future. Then she packs her meager belongings and buys a one-way ticket to a little town on the fringes of Oregon’s Deschutes National Forest called Sisters. She’s wanted a family for years. Will she find one in Sisters?
What Celia doesn’t plan to find is a strange Chinese woman whose meddling ways keep throwing her in the path of a handsome, but reserved, forest ranger. But no matter how kind or dependable Silas seems to be, there are some things in Celia’s past that neither of them can escape, and this time, the damage might be too much to mend.
I love how this story comes together. Pearl just happens to know who needs to be with who and kind of puts people together, like a matchmaker but she doesn’t really let them know that info. She seems to have an instinct of getting the right people together. It doesn’t really say how but Pearl just seems to know where to be and who needs to be there.
Celia needed to get out of her bad situation and decided to leave Chicago and move to Sisters, Oregon because her mother had told her it was the best place to be. Her mother died when she was 11 years old. Celia bought a bus ticket to Sister’s Oregon. I love how the story about Celia is written, I can feel the emotions and brought me to tears a few times. But she is a smart 20-year-old.
Silas was also an orphan, he lived in Sisters, Oregon, he was raised by his Aunt Nancy and he lived down the lane from her, they were close. Silas had some problems, didn’t talk to many people because he stuttered. He did go to college and has a great job as a Forrest ranger and a fire fighter.
Somehow their paves are supposed to cross. Somehow Pearl knows this.
This story Broken Things to Mend (Power of the Matchmaker) is the first of 12 books in this series. This story was written really well and I enjoyed the story. I loved that it was a clean, and also spoke about going to church. This book is a wonderful romance story to read and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. I also loved that the author added how she learned about the town Sisters and that was interesting as well.
