From the day they met, John and Elizabeth were destined to fall in love. Their whirlwind romance started when they were young college students and lasted nearly thirty years.
So when John Baxter is asked to relive his long-ago love story with Elizabeth for his grandson Cole’s heritage project, he’s not sure he can do it. The sadness might simply be too great. But he agrees and allows his heart and soul to go places they haven’t gone in decades. Back to the breathless first moments, but also to the secret heartbreak that brought John and Elizabeth together.
At the same time, Baxter family friend Cody Coleman is working through the breakup of his complicated relationship with Andi Ellison. He is determined to move on when a chance sighting changes his plans—and heart. Can Cody convince Andi to give their love another try, or is it time for them to say goodbye for good?
As school comes to an end, Cole presents his report on the love story between his grandparents John and Elizabeth Baxter. It is a tale that touches the hearts of the entire family, and one that causes Cole to better understand his own beginning.
Whether you’re meeting the Baxter family for the first time or finding them all over again, Love Story will stir your heart and remind you of the generational impact of love and the eternal bond of family.
My Rating & Thoughts: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 (5 stars)
The love story of John and Elizabeth Baxter is a long awaited story time and it certainly did not disappoint. It was fun to return to the Baxter family and see how their story began. I liked how open John was in his story with the mistakes of his youth and I loved learning the story of how he met God. It was a nice getting to see Cole starting to grow up and I am looking forward to the stories of the next generation of the Baxters.
Catching up with the continuing story of Cody and Andi was wonderful also. The forgiveness in their story was touching as they each moved past their struggles and finally open up to each other and are turning to God for answers about their lives.
