You don't want to miss this wonderful story. From beginning to end it touches the frailty and fragileness of man. It is wartime and poverty dividing the haves from the have-nots. The story opens with two people on a train; strangers who help each other. I am a book-in-hand person, so to read this in eBook form was a stretch for me. I am so glad I did! It was riveting. I was right there alongside them as their story unveiled. It is beautiful. One thing that stuck out to me was our apprehension to be known when we are uncertain of the actions of another. The sad part is that by holding back, so does the other person, not wanting to offend or be offended. What do we set aside because of vain imaginations; what have we lost because we haven't been ourselves, true to our heart? I am not saying, carrying my heart on my sleeve, but rather true to who we are. Being a lighthouse for others to see by. So good. I loved this Novella and would love to see it rewritten to include a future and a hope in greater detail and longevity! Very excellent.
This is a Historical Fiction story based on the remembrance of an ancestor. This story fits in any generation ~*~ generosity ~*~ of ourselves.
I fell in love with the main characters Sophia and Gannon. Both of them are very likeable and compassionate individuals. Gannon is a true gentleman, and Sophia, a very respectable lady. I loved the dialogue and the way the author made the story come to life with her extremely well-written descriptions of the scenery and the characters' inner emotions and body language.
I would liked to have gotten to know the characters better and for the story to have been longer--but then, it is a novella. I was just enjoying it so much that it ended much too soon for me. I think a good story (whether long or short) always leaves you wanting more, and this was definitely one of those stories.
I cannot wait to read more of Ms. Cote's books. If you enjoy reading clean, inspirational romance, I think you'll love this story as much as I did! If you don't believe me, give it a try. :)
Sophia is an immigrant girl who is on her way to Chicago to marry a man she's never met. Gannon is also on his way to Chicago to tie up a few loose ends before he leaves for Cuba to fight in the Spanish-American war. Gannon notices Sophia on the train, and is impressed by her kindness towards a group of weary travelers. Gannon and Sophia eventually begin to talk to each other and through an unusual set of circumstances they end up married to each other.
I really enjoyed this novella because it wasn't a love-at-first sight kind of thing. Love sneaks up on Gannon and Sophia, much like it does for many of us. Sophia was a character I came to love quickly . . . such a sweet, kind, gentle soul. And Gannon was no less a fine young man. I loved how both Sophia and Gannon drew strength from their relationship with God and learned and became better people. Characters that grow instead of staying stagnant are my favourites.
I really enjoyed this story and am looking forward to reading more of Lyn's work!
Enter a good hearted man, who is going off to war far, far away & wants to honor his parents, yet the girl with the kind heart holds his heart...
Twist, turns, plenty of stubbornness from both of them & you won't believe where she ends up!
Very sweet love story.
Definitely will be re-read many times! :)
