  • Heartwarming

    When Iain MacLeod, a navy SEAL, stepped on an IED he knew that life as he knew it would cease, as always, he put on a cheerful face and joked about but this was just a front that he always used to cover his fears. Having spent many months in a centre with hundreds of others just like him, having reconstructive surgery but not seeing any difference he made the big decision to apply to Hathaway House,a rehabilitation centre that treats it's patients holistically. Robin Caruthers , a vetinary tech, was escaping a failed relationship when she went to work in the animal section of Hathaway house, Dani, the owner, had a great belief that contact with animals could help with the healing process. Iain and Robin soon became friends, could it become more that that ? this was Hathaway House.... she introduced him to the animals, which he had always loved, especially the horses. Robin and Iain were both fighting their own demons, her the self doubt after her partner cheated on her and him his life changing injuries, why could everyone else see improvement but he couldn't, Robin taught him that he had a disability, he was not disabled. I love the way that every member of the teams at Hathaway house are dedicated to healing these injured veterans, even Dennis the chef who makes sure that they eat the correct diet. I love the way Dale Mayer writes about the psychological issues as well as the physical ones that these vets face. This is a standalone book but the author gently leads into the next story and I can't wait. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

  • Iain Hathaway House

    I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it. I so thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a great addition to the series. This series is about our wounded warriors. They come to Hathaway House to heal the mind, body and spirit. Not only does Hathaway House help veterans, but animals as well. Here is vet tech, Robin Carruthers, she has only been at Hathaway for a short period of time. She has seen miracles happen with both the patients and the animals. She spots a new veteran when he arrives. Unfortunately Iain MacLeod didn't take an ambulance but had a friend drive him in a truck. Iain is in agony. He questions his decisions to come to Hathaway as coming by truck set his recovery back weeks. This story is such a heartwarming, clean story of two people coming together and finding healing. I enjoyed that this story was written in a dual POV format. Robin feels like she isn't good enough for Iain and seeing how she deals with her feelings really is a thought-provoking moment. Even though this is a part of a series, this can be a stand-alone. This is a clean, sweet romance that I highly recommend to anyone.

  • Looking Back to Move Forward

    Our first introduction to Iain is his suffering the consequences of stubborn refusal to arrive at Hathaway House in an ambulance. Ironically, he applied for transfer to Hathaway House because he believed the VA hospital rehab unit he had been in felt that his current progress was the best he could expect to achieve. His class-clown behavior had resulted in a less-than-stellar reputation for him there. He hadn’t had to work hard, and thus he didn’t really know what he was capable of. Having heard reports that a lot of patients with injuries as serious as his were healing 100% at Hathaway House and walking out of there strong and healthy, he was motivated to work hard and change his ways. Instead, he spent some pretty painful days driving in his friend’s big pickup truck, literally regressing his recovery level by at least a couple of weeks, starting with full bed rest until he could be fully assessed. Robin, the vet-tech working with Stan and the animal patients downstairs, had seen Iain’s arrival and the pain he tried so hard to hide. Something in the way he hid his pain the same way the injured animals do (able to be seen only in their eyes) drew her to him. When they had occasion to chat in the dining room after Iain was finally able to get himself there, she found it easy to talk to him about also being relatively new to Hathaway House, something they had in common. As time passes, Iain has to adjust and trust, to minimize his stubbornness and step up his perseverance, in order to push through his intense suffering after physiotherapy sessions. Robin realizes that each of them needs to recognize long-past unacknowledged issues that are still inhibiting the progress they want to, but cannot seem to, achieve – and that neither is ready to talk about them with each other nor the therapists available to them. Robin picks up two journals that she hopes might help both Iain and herself recall past events and feelings for some self-analysis to understand their obstacles. What I liked best about this part of the plot line was that each one’s “journal journey” visited emotions they would probably not have linked to their current situations. I hope that readers benefit from this idea and also the ongoing message in the Hathaway House series that even brave and strong warriors have times when they need help to do the work of healing. All in all, a really great read! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

  • Entertains, Moves Me and Makes Me Think

    Hathaway House is for our wounded warriors where the care is above what the VA can provide and is what each or our wounded deserve in the real world. This is Iains story and can be read as a stand alone. Iain has achieved all he can with the VA and has applies at Hathaway House. He is accepted and begins his journey. There are doctors, physical therapist, psychologists, pet therapy, everything Hathaway House can provide to help the wounded. Robin is a vet tech. How cool is this premise??? Helping the wounded warriors and wounded animals. My heart just swells with this, can it happen in the real world? Is something like this in the process? Robin is single again an dealing with her own issues but is there to cheer Iain on. This is truly a feel good, based on harsh reality in our war torn world today. Issues are dealt with a deft touch that teaches us (without our realizing it) as we cheer on Iains progress and mourn with the set backs. Thank you for another read that entertains me, moves me and makes me think. Thank you for the arc! I freely volunteer my thoughts and opinions!

    Thanks for your feedback!
