SOFTLY AND TENDERLY by Sara Evans and Rachel Hauck (unabridged) is presented by Oasis Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
Maybe in the wide-open country she can learn to breathe again...
Happily married and owner of two successful boutiques, Jade longs to begin a family with her husband, Max. But when she discovers that Max has an illegitimate son—who he wants her to help raise—Jade’s life is turned upside down.
She flees to her childhood home, a rambling Iowa farmhouse, with enough room to breathe. There—while her mother’s health grows fragile, and the tug of her first love grows stronger—Jade begins to question everything she thought she knew about family, love, and motherhood.
In the wide-open landscape, Jade begins to see a future that doesn’t rest on the power of her past, but in the goodness of God’s tender mercies.

“Fans of Karen Kingsbury's tender family stories will love this southern-flavored tale of triumph and grace.” (Lisa Wingate, national best-selling author of Tending Roses and Larkspur Cove)
