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.
I need to confess that I’m not a huge fan of Cara James. I actually knew this before I requested this book, but I’m used to seeing her name as Cara Lynn James. That missing middle name threw me for a loop. Once I started reading, I realized what had happened.
That being said, I found this book to be a classic Cara Lynn James novel – warm, endearing, and descriptive. Her style is sort of a combo of literary descriptions with genre historical romance. If you enjoy the vivid details, the in depth setting, you’ll enjoy this book. While it’s not my cup of tea, it’s everything you’d expect from a James novel. If you liked her earlier books, this won’t disappoint.
