"It was his voice. . . . . . How could a voice be so familiar, yet so forgotten?"
Millie Cooper traveled all the way to Glenwood Springs, Colorado, away from her childhood home in Nantucket, after her future took a drastic turn for the worse over a broken engagement. Now six years later, while serving the local community as an apprenticed nurse, she has come face to face with a desperate man; the older brother who, on that fateful night, informed Millie that she would never become Mrs. Stephen Drexel.
John Drexler's first words upon seeing Millie Cooper again were far from eloquent. "Millie Cooper. You've grown." How could he possibly expect "the fisherman's daughter" to serve as his mother's private nurse and oversee the final months of his sister-in-law's pregnancy? "Even if I persuade her, our troubles will be far from over", he muses. However, as the ever faithful head of his family, he had done what had to be done, he had asked. Now it was up to Miss Cooper to decide if she could put the past behind her, while John has to decide just what he really thinks about Millie Cooper.
This book far exceeded simple expectations, for the roads traveled by its characters are steep and treacherous; switchbacks appear without warning and storms unleash their fury with nary a breeze. But just as the warm healing waters of the Colorado springs bring relief to so many, this lovely, romantic story demonstrates how God beautifully "sanctifies our deepest distresses".
The reason I gave it one fewer star is because of the compounding tortured emotions of Millie and John. They want to be together, but misunderstanding prevents them from being together. By the end of the story, I was emotionally drained. Or maybe this was the intended effect of the author. Nevertheless, the story is well-written and I would read more from this author.
1885 Glenwood Springs, Colorado
Millie Cooper never expected to see any of the Drexel family ever again after the heartbreak they caused years ago; but they have moved to Glenwood Springs, where she now lives. John is now asking her the unthinkable, to care for his ailing elderly mother and his sister-in-law who is with child. How can he even think she would accept after the history between them? But, ask he did. Now she has to make a difficult decision, what does the Lord require of her in this situation? Can she forgive them and show them grace as the Lord has done her? Is there any choice really? A heartwarming story.
The responsibility of being in charge of his family, (mother, brother his brother's wife and children) always putting their needs above his own.
"Where the past and present collide and a woman is on the precipice of unexpected love."
I love that line from the description! Such a precipice Millie finds herself on too. Millie is faced with difficult situations as a nurse for Dr. Murphy but they do not compare with the things she must deal with in her new position as the private nurse to Katherine Drexel (a horrible, snooty woman who thinks Millie not good enough for her family).
Millie leans on her faith during her many trials, occasionally needing reminders she is not alone.
There is more than one heart that belongs in Glenwood Springs. I recommend reading this book to find out whom those hearts belong to.
