Joshua has come to Bethlehem Springs to find D. B. Morgan. The author writes dime novels that portray his grandfather in a less than favorable light. No one else besides Joshua seems to care, but it matters very much to him. His grandfather was very important to him. He'll do whatever it takes to find the truth.
Daphne just happens to be the author Joshua is looking for, but she never meant to hurt anyone. Her stories of the man came from an honest source and she wants to believe that she's right. The problem is, even if she's right, she's come to like Joshua a great deal and doesn't want to see him hurt. Once she finally reveals the secret of her writing to her family, she comes clean to Joshua knowing that he may not like her much after that.
Finding the truth together will be painful for Joshua at first, but he'll learn to see that God's love covers any sins. He'll also see that Daphne is a gifted writer and should share her talent. He's falling in love with her, but there's the matter of the woman he's been intended to marry since childhood. The longer Joshua spends in Bethlehem Springs, the less he wants to return to St. Louis.
This was a great ending to the series. You'll still see Gwen, Morgan, Cleo and Woody, but their stories aren't really mentioned here, so you can safely read these out of order.
Joshua Crawford finds out that the books written by D. B. Morgan aka Daphne, have portrayed his grandfather, Richard Terrell,(Rawhide Rick) in a not so favorable light. He sets out to find this D. B. Morgan and is determined to make him write a retraction. You can imagine his surprise when he finds out that the real author is Daphne. He is even more surprised to learn that his grandfather has a past that he did not know about - this was before Richard Terrell became a Christian.
Daphne and Joshua find that they both have to re-evaluate what is important to them in their lives. In the meantime they begin to have feelings for each other and this seems to go well until- Joshua's fiancée' enters the picture. I really enjoyed reading this book even though it was not my favorite genre. This is the third book in the series, but was great as a stand alone book. I would love to go back and read the first two. Looks like I found a new author to read!
I first discovered Robin about seven years ago. She was the first author I discovered who opened up her life and heart to her readers through the Internet, and I remember being so drawn to this sweet, godly woman who shaped her characters with such depth and realism.
Her newest novel, A Matter of Character, does not disappoint. I am always intrigued with stories about writers. Robin has crafted a compelling character in Daphne McKinley, an unlikely heiress living in the small town of Bethlehem Springs, Idaho. No one knows of her secret life as the author of a dime novel series based loosely on the adventures of Rawhide Rick, legendary around town for his less than scrupulous run as the town judge years earlier. But when Joshua Crawford comes to town, determined to clear the name of his grandfather, Daphne must come to terms with the power of her words. Together they seek the truth, even while the plot has them very much at odds with one another. Together they learn there's always more to every story than meets the eye.
A Matter of Character is the third and final offering in The Sisters of Bethlehem Springs series, but it easily stands alone as a quick and easy read. Whether you're new to Robin Lee Hatcher, or a long time fan such as I am, you're sure to enjoy this well-crafted story. For an extra bonus, hop over to Robin's website and get to know this wonderful Christian and author.
