I have read so many historical romances that I wonder sometimes if any authors can produce a truly fresh story anymore... yes, they can. I really enjoyed this book because it just had such a fresh spin on things. Fannie is a spoiled young lady (read as privileged, not a brat) that is having her world turned upsidedown and is having to discover a new path for herself. Her journey is punctuated by a varying assortment of colorful characters - good and bad - and I never knew who was safe and who wasn't and who was truly good and who wasn't. And then of course there is the love interest (or interests) and I really didn't know how that was going to turn out. I loved it. Stephanie has such a lovely writing style and every page was just truly enjoyable.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Her first nonfiction work, How to Help a Grieving Friend, was released in 2005. In addition to serving in her local church and keeping up with two married children, two college students, and a high school senior, Stephanie enjoys motorcycle trips with her family and church friends. Her passionate interests in pioneer women's history, antique quilts, and French, Italian, and Hawaiian language and culture provide endless story-telling possibilities.
ABOUT THE BOOK
She is a self-centered young woman from a privileged family who fears the outdoors and avoids anything rustic. He is a preacher living under a sense of duty and obligation to love the unlovable people in the world. She isn't letting anything deter her from solving a family mystery that surfaced after her mother's death. He is on a mission to reach the rejects of society in the remote wilderness regions of Montana. Miss Fannie Rousseau and Reverend Samuel Beck are opposites in every way... except in how they both keep wondering if their paths will ever cross again.
