“I Received this book from Moody Publishers for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are my own.”
“Holliston, Maine. 1892. No matter how striking she is, a fisherman’s daughter doesn’t stand a chance with Warren Brentwood, the heir of the local lumber empire. So in an effort to better her life and eventually catch Warren’s eye, Espy takes a job at the local professor’s home. But when the professor begins to tutor her, the rumors begin to fly.
Scandal turns Espy’s world upside down and she flees town in disgrace. Alone and penniless, Espy has nothing left but her faith when she is rescued by a missionary family. Espy longs to return home freed from the lies that surrounded her departure. But will anyone–particularly Warren–believe in her professed innocence?
This was a very good book. There was not much action, but I did enjoy how the story progressed and how Espy and Warren looked to God before each other, and in that, their love grew.
I enjoyed both of their characteristics and personalities and they seemed very realistic. I also really liked the missionary family that took in Espy and then helped Warren get more involved in the ministry. The Pastor of the local church was also very likable.
Again, this was a pretty good book and I have nothing negative to say about it!
