What would bring you happiness in a world that was suddenly empty?
For Lucy Crane, the answer is simple: her daughter. When her husband is killed in a tragic accident, Lucy loses her desire to live, but only one thing keeps her going – her unborn daughter. Focusing on being a mother helps Lucy cope with her loss, but kids grow up and they leave home, eventually. Eighteen years after losing her first and only love, Lucy is faced with the opportunity to find the happiness for which she’s always longed. Her own fears become her worst enemies as she learns how to embrace love once again.
Evan Donovan is also facing his own struggles. Forced to retire from the FDNY because of lung damage caused by 9/11, Evan moves to upstate New York where he hopes to find a little peace and quiet. Old habits die hard, and Evan’s hero complex and survivor’s guilt constantly remind him of how difficult it is to be vulnerable. But for the first time in his life, he’s tired of being alone.
Drawing strength from one another, Lucy and Evan discover how beautiful it is to let love be a part of their lives.

It was either tear inducing or boring- there was no in between. Couldn't finish.
omg this book is truly inspiring. let love be is the 4th in the love series but can be read as a standalone. so if you read let love heal you know lucy our main character as momma melanies mom. we get to know lucy on a more intimate level in this book, after her husband dies in an accident lucy has nothing but her unborn daughter to keep her going so for years she puts everything but aside to be an amazing mother. evan is forced to retire early from his job due to health issues and move to upstate ny. both characters have lost the one thing in their lives that means everything to them and then they find each other. i don't wanna give to much away but lets just say this is a book that will stand the test of time it is truly a beautifully written love story that will leave you feeing fulfilled and inspired.
