I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review, and I must say that this was a good read! I really enjoyed Karen's writing voice, as well as her characters'. Eden is practically an old maid librarian with a jilted past, and Levi is a blacksmith with a shady past. Even though both of these characters have been redeemed by God's grace, they can't seem to let go of their previous hurts. They strike up a friendship by discussing something dear to both of them-literature. A romance blossoms, but becomes compromised when Levi is honest about his violent past. There are secondary characters such as Verna, Chloe, Duncan, and Ornery who add a lot of spice to the story, and prove that they story could turn out much differently if not for them. I loved this book, and highly recommend Karen as an author. This is my second Karen Whitemyer book, and won't be my last. I really liked her first book a little better, but that's probably just me. The covers of all of Karen's books have all been breath-taking! I would peruse the pages just to see what the cover teases about. If you're looking for a new author's books to read, then look no further. Karen Whitemyer is one to watch!!!
I found this book available on Amazon and CBD in paperback and Kindle.
