About the Book

Book: Restored  
Author: Tanya Eavenson  
Genre: Contemporary Christian Romance  
Release date: February 10, 2016

Sometimes love arrives when you least expect it. Dr. Steven Moore is known nationally for saving lives. If only he could save his own. Unable to deal with his 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 say good-bye?

My ThoughtsTanya Eavenson has written a heartwarming story with struggles that we face today. The author does a fabulous work of developing each character; the characters become real to the reader and the reader becomes sensitive to them and lost in the flurry of ups and downs of events that occur in the storyline.  

I truly enjoyed the reference to one of my favorite books in the Bible: Ruth; and how the author made reference to Steven being Elizabeth's Boaz.  Her kinsman redeemer.  That was one of the most touching parts of the story for myself.  This is such a wonderful romance that readers will certainly enjoy.  Although it is the second book in the series"Unending Love" it is a stand-alone read.    Readers will certainly identify with any one of the characters that are in the novel.    I will certainly be looking forward to more from Tanya Eavenson.

More from Tanya

RESTORED is the second book in the Unending Love series. It’s a story I wanted to write, one I knew I could write, but still, it took six years to write. Not that it was difficult, but something was missing. A friend and I attended the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference, and during the conference, we discussed RESTORED. We came up with different plots, but nothing felt right. I decided then to take a hiatus from contemporary romance and to begin writing another genre I’ve always loved, historical romance. While doing research and working on my historical romance novel, doctors discovered I had cancer. There are many times in a person’s life where he or she may reach an obstacle. It may be an illness, an accident, a difficult decision that must be made, or any number of other things. I’d reached that point in my life. It was a defining moment, not only dealing with my cancer prognosis, but asking the Lord if He truly called me to write as I thought, or was I mistaken. I stuffed my historical romance novel away and almost gave up on God’s call to write. But through the fears and searching for God’s direction, I learned He did indeed place this desire to write on my heart and no matter what I was facing in my life, it didn’t diminish His call. I’m inspired by the Lord to write inspirational Christian fiction so people may know the love of Christ. To know the depth He will go to have a relationship with us. And though we struggle, He uses us—ordinary people like me—to do out of the ordinary things. Unexpected things—like writing. This propelled me to write RESTORED. I began pouring into RESTORED the knowledge I’d gained through my own experiences and that of my stepfather and father-in-law, who were both diagnosed with melanoma. I know now that if I had written this story any earlier in my career, I wouldn’t be on such a personal level with my characters nor could I have written it from the heart. I love this story. I love my characters, Steven and Elizabeth. RESTORED is about lost love being given a second chance when you least expect it. A story of how nothing is impossible with God.
