    Review:

    "A Path Toward Love" by Cara Lynn James was indeed a sweet christian historical romantic fiction definitely one of a 'fairy tale' kind of read. This poor lady Katherine Osborne had inherited 'the Osborne Citrus Groves' in Florida from her husband Charles of two years...only to find out that her business was near bankruptcy. You will find that Katherine had made a bad decision in her past and was now praying about it. After a visit from her father she does decide to go back to her rich family and he offers her a loan only if she meets his conditions to spend the summer at the a family's camp in New York. Katherine knew that her mother will try to manipulate her and she did just that with the son of a childhood friend(Randy). Will Katherine allow this to happen? We find out through the read that Katherine did not have a story book marriage...but one of infidelity and now that she needed funds to keep her 'Citrius Groves' dream alive. What was she to do? This is when she turns to a old friend, Andrew Townsend for support. Now, this is the time I say you must pick up "A Path Toward Love" to see how this author will bring out this wonderful story to us. I did often tire of Katherine for how she let her mother make all her decisions going back and forth and even the father at times but thank God for Aunt Letty who was just what Katherine needed in her life at that time. Will Katherine be able to stand her ground and pick up her life and find the peace she needs with her domineering and manipulative parents? Yes, Katherine wants to be a business woman...what was wrong with that? We will just let her mother and father answer that one for you from the read. Even though I found this novel somewhat predictable I wasn't able to put it down...especially with characters like Katherine, Andrew, Randy, Harriett Roles, Isabelle, Stuart Osborne, Aunt Letty and a few other that keep this story rocking.

    "A Path Toward Love very enjoyable and I liked how this author was able to work the 'Christian Faith' into this well written read and would I recommend this read...YES!

    Katherine came home to forget her past. The last thing she expected was to find her future.
    Young widow Katherine Osborne returns to her family’s rustic camp on Raquette Lake in the Adirondack Mountains. She’s determined to live a quiet life, but her socialite mother is equally determined to push her into a new marriage while she’s still young.
    Andrew Townsend has known Katherine since they were children. An attorney who is successful, but not wealthy, he knows she is socially out of his reach. But he’s curious about what changed the free-spirited girl he once knew into this private, somber young woman.
    Katherine has kept hidden the details of her unsuccessful marriage. When past sins come to light, she must turn to God for the courage to be honest. But how can she trust the God she feels has let her down? When she confides in Andrew, their relationship takes a dramatic turn into uncharted territory.
    Amid impossible obstacles, two young people must learn to trust enough to walk the path that God has cleared for them. A path that leads to healing and restoration. A path toward love.
                 ~ This was a lovely story that pulled you right into young Katherine's life. I instantly felt like I could be her best friend and help her along with her tough decisions that she has to make and with her troubled personal life. Katherine's sweet decision in the end was the right one. I am glad that I took the time to read this even though it has taken me so long.~
    BookSneeze sent me this book to read and review many months ago and all opinions are my own.

    Cara Lynn James in her new book, ¿A Path Towards Love¿ published

    Cara Lynn James in her new book, “A Path Towards Love” published by Thomas Nelson takes us to into the life of Katherine Osborne in 1905.

    From the back cover: Katherine came home to forget her past. The last thing she expected was to find her future.

    Young widow Katherine Osborne returns to her family’s rustic camp on Raquette Lake in the Adirondack Mountains. She’s determined to live a quiet life, but her socialite mother is equally determined to push her into a new marriage while she’s still young.

    Andrew Townsend has known Katherine since they were children. An attorney who is successful, but not wealthy, he knows she is socially out of his reach. But he’s curious about what changed the free-spirited girl he once knew into this private, somber young woman.

    Katherine has kept hidden the details of her unsuccessful marriage. When past sins come to light, she must turn to God for the courage to be honest. But how can she trust the God she feels has let her down? When she confides in Andrew, their relationship takes a dramatic turn into uncharted territory.

    Amid impossible obstacles, two young people must learn to trust enough to walk the path that God has cleared for them. A path that leads to healing and restoration. A path toward love.

    Hurt, emotional trauma and lies, these are the things that drive us forward into areas that we really do not want to go and keep us from the places that we do want to go. “A Path Towards Love” is a delightful read full of atmosphere and history. Katherine is a young widow who was thrust into the world of tending Orange Groves and is in over her head. ”A Path Towards Love” is about being a woman doing business in a “man’s world”. It is about honesty, rebuilding your life and moving forward in a new direction. It is about trusting God and learning to lean on Him for His guidance and direction. Katherine and Andrew are so real Ms James makes us root for their romance to blossom. Ms. James knows how to tell a story that is both interesting and delightful and I recommend it highly.
