Her goal had been to leave her small town, perhaps serving the Lord as a foreign missionary. She wanted to make a difference with her life and leave behind painful family memories as well as her loss of Peter’s love. Peter’s reappearance with his adorable, little daughter Mary now has made life complicated. What is Sarah’s heart to do?
Secondary characters only add interest. Will, dashing, wealthy and with a history, is very likable; starchy Grams really wants the best for Sarah, but Rebecca has totally another agenda.
The theme of forgiveness flavors the book and the author deftly weaves the story through many layers before the astonishing ending.
At times, I was pulled out of the story with detailed description or an omniscient voice, but this was minimal. Well worth a read. I look forward to book two.
This story, based on a 1902 back drop in a smaller town in Wisconsin, is thoughtfully and artfully painted with words that only a talented author can pen on paper.
What stands out even more are the many lessons of life that Dawn has carefully crafted into this story – a story that touches very tastefully on love, desire, innocence, hope, and dreams that we all have or have had. But it doesn’t stop there. It also deals with judgement of others, jealousy, revenge, gossip, slander, and more.
This, I feel, is a book that will deeply touch the souls of many, if not all, who read this piece of excellent literature. A valuable resource for reviewing lessons that we hopefully have already learned in our lives. This, in addition to learning from the lessons that the characters in this book had to learn on their individual life’s journey. The biggest and most important of them all – Forgiveness.
