Review

Praise for The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek Series

“A beautiful tale. Intriguing. Inviting. Inspiring.”
—Cindy Woodsmall, author of The Hope of Refuge and When the Soul Mends

“It’s always a joy to read a historical novel that isn’t afraid to let its women escape the farm. Cripple Creek’s cast of colorful characters play host to a new romance, as well as pulling back the curtain on a local family tragedy. This
sequel does more than simply tell the “next” story; it revisits the characters we’ve already come to love and creates a complementary depth to an entertaining new tale.”
—Allison Pittman, author of Stealing Home and The Bridegrooms

“Ida believes her future is secure in a man’s world. After all, she has drive and determination. But what happens when she meets a man who makes a withdrawal from her heart? Author Mona Hodgson makes discovering the answer to this question a rich, rewarding adventure.”
—DiAnn Mills, author of A Woman Called Sage and the Texas Legacy Series

“All the ups and downs of a romance with a delightful dose of history, with characters that will sneak into your heart and take up residence. More, more, we want more.”
—Lauraine Snelling, author of No Distance Too Far and the Daughters of Blessing Series

It was good, but I felt that it was lacking. Hattie is a major character in the 3 previous books but this one was supposed to be in part her story and I kept waiting for it. We know Willow's story from previous books but yet most of this book was still about her. I was really looking forward to hearing more about Hattie's past and while there were hints the story never really came out. It left me feeling like there was another book out there about her that I hadn't read and I just felt lost. Overall I enjoyed the series but this one was a bit of a let down.

My first impression of Mona Hodgson's novel was the gorgeous cover with a picture of a young woman that reminded me of a young Judy Garland in appearance, and that's the way I saw Willow Raines Peterson throughout this entire warm and involving read.

Having not read the first three books in The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series did not detract from my getting to know the characters and story behind the Sinclair sisters and their brother-in-law Pastor Tucker Raines, Willow's brother, prior to this story written around Willow. Even though placed in the year of 1898, we see that Cripple Creek is a burgeoning town filled with like characters working hard to build their town that we might still see across our nation in the present day. Of course, we have much more modern day conveniences now, but it was a time of running water, plumbing, telephones, iceboxes, (refrigerators) ovens and other inventions of rough nature. It worked for those living in this historical era.

We first meet Willow, Tucker and his wife Ida Sinclair Raines at the graveside of their father. The family watched Willow closely, because she now felt twice the sorrow having just lost her husband, Sam, in a drowning incident; and just having spent time in an asylum for depression. Ida and Tucker tried to convince Willow to live with them at the parsonage, but Willow preferred to live independently. Willow soon became a boarder at Hattie Adams' Boarding House, the same home of the Sinclair sisters for a length of time after their mother's death and their father, Harlan Sinclair moved to Paris to conduct business.

Willow depending deeply on God's grace and mercy is determined to find employment to support herself. She is a talented artist.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, although I'm wondering if I missed some prequels to it! The author presents all the characters as if they are well-known to the reader, and each one comes to life in the telling of this tale. I love how she gently wove faith and a conversion story through this romantic novel. The only fault I find is, I think the primary antagonist's part was not well-developed. It seems it ended too easily, without expected drama. But that didn't detract from the story as a whole. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.

Talented artist and widow, Willow Peterson is seeking a new life in Cripple Creek, Colorado. She's thrilled to be able to be around her brother, pastor Tucker Raines, his wife, Ida Sinclair Raines, and the other Sinclair sisters. Jobless and still trying to make sense of her life, Willow accepts Ida's offer of a job at the family store, yet she longs to be able to use her talents. Photographer Trenton Van Deer is in need of a skilled artist who can paint portraits from his photographs. When he sees a sample of Willow's work, he knows he's found his artist. A few misunderstandings later, the two begin to work together. They also begin to fall in love. What will happen when Trenton's past collides with his hope for the future?

This is the fourth and final book in the Brides of Cripple Creek Series, but it easily stands alone. I've not read any of the other books in this series but I fully enjoyed this one. I found the characters to be delightful and fun. I loved the boardinghouse owner, Miss Hattie. She also finally finds love. I will soon be reading the other books in this series just so I can get to know the Sinclair Sisters!

I received the kindle e-book for free from the publisher, Waterbrook/Multnomah's Blogging for Books program for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Recommended to fans of Lori Wick, Karen Witemeyer, Susan Page Davis, Denise Hunter, and Tracie Peterson.
