Publisher's Summary

They both searched the world trying to fill their souls. But some beauty must be born from within….

UK, 1967. Julie Jensen is desperate for a new beginning. After fleeing abuse and a rotten boyfriend, the determined young woman sets out for a fresh start across the globe. But just as she draws close to a fascinating folk guitarist in England, their intimate bond is cut short when she’s whisked away for religious training in Spain.

US, the late '90s. Growing up without a dad, Kirsten felt less than whole. But as the curious girl matures into an inquisitive adult, she frantically pores over names of men that may have connected with her beloved single mother. And following the right lead could take her straight to her father’s doorstep… or down a rabbit hole of heartbreak.

After Julie is transferred to San Francisco and its burgeoning psychedelic scene, she envelopes herself in the liberating sensuality of the free love mentality. And the deeper Kirsten digs into church records and old phone books for a missing part of herself, the harder it becomes for her to hold out any hope.

Will two women on journeys of faith find something beautiful blossoming on the inside?

Better to Have Loved is a stirring women’s fiction novel. If you like touching characters, stunning surprises, and stories based on true events, then you’ll adore Christy Nicholas’ epic pilgrimage of the heart.
