The last thing she expected is a hopeful future.
Young widow Katherine Osborne returns to her family’s rustic camp on Raquette Lake in the Adirondack Mountains. She’s determined to live a quiet life, but her socialite mother is equally determined to push her into a new marriage while she’s still young.
Andrew Townsend has known Katherine since they were children. An attorney who is successful, but not wealthy, he knows she is socially out of his reach. But he’s curious what changed the free-spirited girl he once knew into this private, somber young woman.
Katherine has kept hidden the details of her unsuccessful marriage. When past sins come to light, she must turn to God for the courage to be honest. But how can she trust the God she feels has let her down? When she confides in Andrew, their relationship takes a dramatic turn into uncharted territory.
Amid impossible obstacles, two young people must learn to trust enough to walk the path that God has cleared for them. A path that leads to healing and restoration. A path toward love.
This book was really well written and I really enjoyed reading it!
I love the 1800's time period this book was set in - it is so crazy the etiquette rules and gossip that reigned in that era (each era has their own set of problems, don't they?). But it is such an interesting era to read about!
This book is a great reminder about forgiveness, moving on in life, and accepting God's plan for our lives! I love Katherine's independence and determination to keep her orange orchard in Florida - something women of those days just didn't do on their own! In the end, she goes beyond the expectations of society to follow her heart and God's plan - and I definitely loved seeing that!
I cheered for and loved going along on the journey of Katherine and Andrew because it was out of the norm in that society but sometimes that just doesn't matter! True love is much more important and the author definitely conveyed that in this book!
This book was a great compilation of love, determination, forgiveness, and acceptance and I loved every word of it!
