With warmth and sensitivity, #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr shows readers that falling in love can be the bravest act of all.

In a moment of desperation, Devon McAllister takes her daughter and flees a place where they should have been safe and secure. She has no idea what is around the next bend, but she is pretty certain it can't be worse than what they've left behind. Her plan is to escape to somewhere she can be invisible. Instead, an unexpected offer of assistance leads her to Thunder Point, a tiny Oregon town with a willingness to help someone in need.

As the widowed father of a vulnerable young boy, Spencer Lawson knows something about needing friendship. But he's not looking for anything else. Instead, he's thrown his energy into his new role as Thunder Point's high school football coach. Tough and demanding to his team, off the field he's gentle and kind...just the kind of man who could heal Devon's wounded heart.

Devon thought she wanted to hide from the world. But in Thunder Point, you find bravery where you least expect it...and sometimes, you find a hero.

Look for What We Find by Robyn Carr, a powerful story of healing, new beginnings and one woman's journey to finding the happiness she's long been missing. Order your copy today!

Our customer reviews

The Hero is the story of Devon, a young mother who is escaping from her 'safe' home, The Fellowship, and is found by Rawley, an old man who works at Thunder Point town and is willing to help her and her daughter with everything they need. Devon was a very interesting character. Not only she's escaping from The Fellowship, but also from her ex lover and father of their daughter, who is the one in charge of The Fellowship and also father of the other children from the group. She has absolutely nothing, and is scared. But with the help of the people in Thunder Point, she starts to live her life as it's supposed to be. She also finds love with Spencer, the recently widowed father. Maybe it's too soon for both of them to have a relationship, but something is calling them and in a few weeks they are in love. I liked this book mostly because of Devon. She's one of the strongest characters I've read. Obviously is wasn't a smart choice to enter The Fellowship, but she is brave to escape and try to rebuild her life. I already knew Spencer's story from the previous book, but I didn't click with him. I thought their romance was super fast, it wasn't the most important thing in this book, and also didn't like that he was scared after trying so hard to convince her to be together...he was even a little bit mean. But it was nice to read a little bit more about Rawley, always lonely and silent. I think he was the real hero is this story!show more
