Book Review - Jennifer, An O'Malley Love Story by Dee Henderson

An O'Malley Love Story

by Dee Henderson

Dr. Jennifer O'Malley is a dedicated physician specializing in the treatment of the toughest pediatric cases.  Totally immersed in the lives and emotions of her small patients, she feels deeply when things are not going well for them and works hard at raising their spirits and giving them hope.  

Jennifer, orphaned when her parents died in a car accident, is the youngest of the O'Malley clan, a group of seven orphans who bonded together and legally made themselves a family.  When Jennifer meets Dr. Tom Peterson, a surgeon, she discovers a compassionate man who is also dedicated to his patients.  When Tom reveals he is a Christian and invites her to church, he opens Jennifer's heart to a relationship with God.  As their friendship grows, she is nervous about introducing him to her family, but before that can happen, tragedy strikes Jennifer.  Although Tom remains steadfastly beside her, the hope of a future together is now in jeopardy.

Jennifer is a small, easily read book, but in a short time, the reader becomes immersed in the emotions of the characters.  The book is an introduction to The Negotiator, Book One of The O'Malley Series. (The lives of the other O'Malleys have been covered in previous books, so be sure to check those out!)  Dee Henderson always delivers depth of character and situations that capture the reader's attention, and this book is no exception.  A very enjoyable read.
