Series: A Town Called Hope #1
Hope and love blossom on the untamed prairie as a young woman searching for a place to call home happens upon a Kansas homestead during the 1860s . . .
A Town Called Hope, the inspiring series set in post Civil War Kansas, is the creation of best-selling romance writer Catherine Palmer. In the fast-paced Prairie Rose, impulsive nineteen-year-old Rosie Mills takes a job caring for the young son of widowed homesteader Seth Hunter in order to escape the orphanage in which she was raised. Rosie's naive view of love and her understanding of what it means to have a Father in heaven are quickly put to the test. Afraid of being wounded again, Seth struggles to freely open his heart—to his hurting son, to a woman's love, and to a Father who will not abandon him. Together Rosie and Seth must face the harsh uncertainties of prairie life—and the one man who threatens to destroy their happiness.
Prairie Rose launches a series sure to satisfy readers who expect solid biblical values in a wholesome, exhilarating romance.
To start this review I am going to let you know that I had to go back and re-read a little of this book. Why? Because it has been a little while since I had read it. But just picking it up, reading just a few pages that I had marked I was right back into the story of, as the first three words of the synopsis say's Hope and Love.
Set in the Civil War times, this riveting story of young and naive nineteen year old Rosie Mills, one of the main characters. I absolutely loved her. As I read this story I could place myself in to her life. The things that you feel you are ready for but when it really happens to you, you find yourself scared, alone and looking for some where to call home.
I love author Catherine Palmer's style of writing. It pulls you in fast and you are swept away into another place and time. Not only are you rooting for the characters but find yourself questioning your own way of thinking on things.
I will diffidently be reading and reviewing more from this series as well as this wonderful author.
So for the reasons above I will be giving this book my Breath Of Life Rating of:
Five Clock Rating!!
Disclosure: I did receive the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and or review. But the Opinions are my own and yours may differ.
