My Review: I found this to be a very fast-paced book that I just couldn’t put down. There were elements of suspense that kept me on pins and needles wanting to know what would happen next. Historicals are one of my favorites and I have come to enjoy the Love Finds You books as well. There was also the romance aspect thrown in, which continues to be one of my favorites. The characters were very real and believable. My favorite character was Sammie, the orphan who Margaret brought into her home to care for. Sammie was full of spunk and had such strong character in the face of the events that transpired in her life and still continued to trust in the Lord for strength to get her through any situation. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. It was a very relaxing read that I think anyone would find pleasurable.

I received a copy of this book to read and review from the author. My review is not biased by the fact that I was given this book. I HONESTLY read and review any book whether bought or given to me. If I did not like the book I would definitely not give a rave review or recommend it.

  1. Hi Patti,

    Thank you so much for your review of my book, I’m so glad you enjoyed it. A note for your readers that they might like to know….one of the secondary characters, Art Gibbs, was in reality my great-grandfather who lived and worked in Bridal Veil in the same job depicted, during that time period. It was so awesome to find that out and be able to include a bit of our family history in a book!
