People can't be trusted.Animals always made more sense than humans did to marine biologist Skye Youngblood. After her mother's suicide, she left Alabama and never looked back. These days, she pours her heart into protecting nature's sea creatures. When she returns to Dauphin Island, Alabama, for a temporary manatee migration study, her dark past is much too close. She can't let her guard down. But how can she keep her heart hidden when a kind man with a genuine smile makes her want a fresh start?Charter fishing pays the bills for widower Pete Thompson and his little girl, but like his father, a pastor, Pete can't help but fish for men. Only, after growing up under constant scrutiny as a preacher's kid, Pete's ways are a bit more unconventional. And the bulk of his life revolves around raising his precious daughter. When he witnesses the car wreck of a new marine biologist on the island, it doesn't take a genius to see that more than just her physical pain needs tending. Pete feels called to help Skye find true healing, but he's navigating dangerous waters. And he's not at all sure he'll walk away unscathed.

My Perspective

Janet Ferguson is such a talented writer. She has such poise, tenderness, and love in her stories. Healing Skye was such a great read, filled with pain, sorrow, hope, and everything in between. Her flawed characters and difficult circumstances just speak to readers in such a powerful and unique way. It’s hard to even put into words how you feel about them!

Pete and Skye were such a perfect pairing. Both with their own hurdles to overcome, but such a promise of healing and hope for their future. Ferguson takes her time with their relationship. She shows grace throughout their entire story, and reminds readers that even the broken people of the world just need a little love and compassion, as well as patience and nurturing. Somehow Ferguson manages to keep their character growth totally realistic, slow and surprising at the same time. I promise you that their story will touch your heart in ways you never thought of.

Ferguson is an auto read for me, and should be for you. Her stories beautifully share the gospel, poetically touch on difficult subject, and provide such hope to broken readers. They are inspiring and a a joy to read. I highly recommend! I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
