When the three Comwell girls were young, their father abducted the baby, and neither was seen again. Sisters Kate and Jo were haunted by the loss, and searched the crowd for someone who might be their sister. Neither Kate nor Jo have ever married, scarred by their own father vanishing, though neither would admit it.
When Kate and Jo end up back in Santa Sofia, Florida, they find their cottage contains their best and worst memories. Both Kate and Jo meet men they’re attracted to, but will anything come of it? And why is the cottage caretaker is so familiar?
I’ve read all of Ms. Jones books and enjoyed them all so far, and The Barefoot Believers is no exception. The characters are realistically developed, and some of the events are quite humorous. The secondary characters contribute to the story line and the faith message is expertly woven in.
I enjoyed getting to know the characters, and looked forward to learning more about them. I hoped they would find love, and their sister, not necessarily in that order. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book.
