Christian fiction powerhouse Oke (Another Homecoming, Bethany, 1997) gives a slight, familiar story some emotional depth in this novella about love and the mysterious plans of God. Widow Cynthia Longley loves her father dearly, but the widower has far too much time on his hands. To give him something to do other than hang around her house, Cynthia hatches a plot with bachelor P.C. Weston, a fellow church member. Their idea is to fix up Cynthia's father with P.C.'s mother. Anyone who can't see the outcome of this has never read a romance novel. However, Oke brings it to life with a charm and a gentle grace that are all her own. Recommended.
