Love's Second Verse

By Lee Carver


When adversity destroys everything but her family and her hope, Julia must redefine herself: from wife to widow, music teacher to corporate geek. Sustaining joy through faith is the hard part. Julia Morgan, a forty-something Army widow and the mother of two teenage sons, stands on the brink of restarting her life. She lands a prize job as a roving geek for multinational InterBank in Atlanta, so she can maintain her independence and a meaningful, productive life, and pay off debts incurred while caring for her parents-in-law until their deaths. Julia’s healing through her faith in a loving God, whom she worships in song, has brought her back to a sense of joy and the ability to laugh at life. Yet she deals with distrust and hard feelings for her husband’s brother who shirked his responsibility for his parents and probably drained their estate. What scheme is he trying now?

Paul Braddock, InterBank’s senior VP in Atlanta, an embittered widower, smothers the pain with work. He puts his spiritual life on a long, skeptical hold. Paul becomes as interested in Julia’s single-parenting abilities as her IT work. He seeks answers to deep questions about faith, living through loss, and teaching a teenager to love a God who has let them both down. “Love’s Second Verse” is a story of the courage to wage life and hold out for the joy that comes in the morning, and just maybe a second chance at romance.

Book Takeaway:

God does not prevent hardship for his people, but He walks with them through it. He is a God of second chances.

Why the author wrote this book:

Honestly, for the pure pleasure of it. My husband had just retired from the world's largest, most international bank, and stories of that life filled my head. We had lived in Atlanta part of that time, and I loved that city. It just seemed right.
