Have you ever felt like all the windows and doors are shut in your life and you just don’t know where to go or what to do next? In From the Start that is what our two main characters are facing. Colton Greene is a former NFL player, retired much too early due to an injury and Kate Walker is romantic screenplay writer who doesn’t believe in romance anymore. Both have come to Kate’s hometown to help out her family after a tornado brings disaster. Now Kate had not met Colton before and the scene when they first meet had me laughing to the point of tears. This is a story of life’s ups and downs, disappointments, illness, and natural disasters. But ultimately hope and purpose. Can these two navigate all the craziness of life to a happily ever after? This was a wholesome romance that touched on some deeper issues like cancer and foster care. I received a copy for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.
