Single mom Serenity Chandler is determined to do anything to provide better opportunities for her son, Gideon. Moving away from her family support system so Gideon can attend a special school seems like the right choice, even if it means her entire life is about to change.

The satisfaction of helping children and being a part of their lives is one reason Aaron Randall loves his job as a music therapist. When Hope Academy instills a dating policy, he doesn’t give it a second thought. Until the new coworker who’d caught his attention turns out to be the parent of one of his students.

Any relationship between them will put his job at risk. The more time Aaron spends with Serenity and Gideon, the harder it is to ignore what they could have together. With Aaron’s job and Gideon’s education hanging in the balance, they’ll have to rely on faith to find their way.

Finding Faith is the fourth book in the Love’s Compass series.
It can be read on its own, although it does contain spoilers for the previous books.
This is a sweet, Christian romance novel.

***Stephenee – #NerdGirlSteph’s  Review***
I have read all of the books in this series and I think that this is my absolute favorite one so far! I love that Gideon plays such a prevalent role in all of the books, but I was excited to finally get to his actual story (sort-of). Author Melanie D. Snitker writes sweet, family oriented, Christian Romance stories…they are stories that touch the readers heart while mentioning God, but not overwhelming the reader with scripture, beliefs or preaching. Her writing style is one that shows the true meaning of family, the bond that can be created between them and the overwhelming feeling of support and love. Her books make the reader feel happy in a calming way.

This is the story of Serenity and her son Gideon, who is autistic. In each of the books prior to this one we learn about Gideon and his mother, but this one focuses on them. The author does an amazing job with being respectful of children with disabilities and her research and respect jumps right off of the pages. She clearly wants to inform readers of what a life with a person with autism looks like and she shows this and the feelings that the family gets when they celebrate the minor milestones that occur. Serenity leaves all that she has known for a change to have Gideon attend a specialized school, but what she didn’t expect was Aaron. Aaron isn’t looking for a relationship, but he can’t help it once he meets Serenity. Their relationship is rocky and they have some obstacles to overcome but love, family and belief in god helps to work out all obstacles.

This story is fast paced and gets the reader hooked from the very first page. The reader becomes invested in the characters, their lives and the obstacles and challenges that they face. This is a non-stop read that keeps the readers attention and never lets it go. The author makes sure that the reader can’t stop reading because they have to know what happens next. This book plays with all of the readers emotions – they will laugh, cry, yell, and even scream at times, so be prepared for this gamut of emotions and have some tissues handy!

Make sure you add this and her previous books to your TBR list – you don’t want to miss a minute of the Chandler family or Kitner!! I really hope that the author’s next book is about Grams and Peter (hint, hint)! Enjoy this heartwarming family and their adventures!
