Heartache and Hope By Mary Manners

Daylin Sullivan has a passion for two things: books and food. Both help her escape from a past riddled by abandonment; she spent her childhood passed from one foster family to the next. Life has mirrored a game of musical chairs until one New Year’s Eve she stumbles upon a Dash for the Dream brochure in the local diner. The team is a faith-based group that runs marathons to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis research. Patrick Litton is raising his six-year-old daughter Aubree alone. As the leader of Dash for the Dream the widower works tirelessly to secure funding in search of better treatment for all those afflicted with CF—including Aubree. Patrick has no time for romance…until he meets Daylin at the Dash for the Dream kick-off party. Daylin and Patrick don't expect to fall in love, but both learn that when it comes to romance, training for a marathon is the easiest part of their journey.

My Review
Heartache and Hope
By Mary Mannners

Another great story by Mary. Daylin who has not had much of a childhood being sent from foster home to foster home. Patrick a single father raising a daughter with CF. Has his hands full trying to help raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis . Daylin sees a brochure for the cause of CF and decides to join. Neither Daylin or Patrick are looking for love but things can happen during the training for a marathon. Will true love be found? Great book! Loved the characters.
