Today, I’m delighted to share Restored – Book Two in Tanya Eavenson’s series Unending Love…
Dr. Steven Moore is known nationally for saving lives. If only he could save his own. Unable to deal with his cancer prognosis, he retreats to a happier time in his past—to the woman who once stole his heart.
Four years after the death of her beloved husband, bookstore owner Elizabeth Roberts still struggles to sustain her faith and joy in the Lord as she raises her two sons. She strives to find a way through her family’s grief, never suspecting a man from her past might offer hope for her future.
But how can there be a future when he’s only come to kiss her and says good-bye?

Elizabeth ran her fingers down the wooden handrail along the stairs, glancing at the ornate clock on the mantle. “Not much longer now.” Her heart pounded with excitement as her gaze moved to the framed picture beside the clock and settled on her husband’s handsome face. Warmth flowed through her as she lifted the portrait with its silver frame. Chris had just tackled their son, Luke, with the football in the front yard when she snapped the picture. She touched the glass over Chris’s blond hair. His hazel eyes peered up at her. She smiled. It still amazed her how their lives had changed throughout the years, coming back from the brink of divorce to discovering what unconditional love truly meant. What they meant to each other.
“Two hours and you’ll be home,” she breathed. This mission trip to Goma, Africa, kept Chris away for several weeks this time, but now it was time for him to come home to stay.
She closed her eyes, envisioning Chris’s arms around her. Tonight, she’d drink in the words of love she’d missed before she fell asleep every evening, the feel of his body next to hers.
She smiled and pressed a hand against her flat belly. “Yes, Daddy will be home soon. Won’t he be surprised?” The chime of the doorbell broke through her thoughts.
She set the frame down and hurried to open the front door. Elizabeth smiled at her sister and brother-in-law. “Hey, why did you ring the doorbell? You could have come right in.” She halted. Something in their expressions made her heart race. “Where’s Luke?” she asked her sister.
Sam’s mouth opened, but no words came out. She grabbed Phillip’s arm as if she needed support.
Moisture filled Phillip’s eyes. “There’s been an accident. They tried to call. We tried to call.”
“Lizzy.” Her sister moved to her side.
Elizabeth couldn’t breathe. No, God, no. Please, God, I can’t take losing another child. “Where is he, Sam? Where’s Luke?”
Phillip cleared his throat. “Luke is fine. He’s with Mom.”
Elizabeth glanced between them, not understanding. “But you said there was an accident…that they tried to call—”
“My brother…” Phillip’s voice broke and a tear ran down his face. “Elizabeth, there’s been a plane crash.”
