A great book! I love each new book more than the last!
This is a wonderful romance by one of my favorite authors and as usual, it took me on an adventure of suspense, angst, and romance. Our heroine, Grace, strong, determined and full of love for her lost sister, is on a mission and very determined to carry it out. Separated years ago while on an orphan train, she keeps looking for her and meanwhile, helps others along the way. Our hero, Levi (love him) is living his life alone in his much loved mountains. Contented with his quiet but lonely life, he is stunned when he comes home one snowy day to find a young woman and two children in his cabin. Under unusual circumstances in these snowy mountains, two lonely and hurting people find each other and start on a jouney of discovery and I enjoyed following along with them. This is the third book in this series and each one can be read as a stand alone, but it's so much fun to connect with the past characters from the previous books, In His Eyes and In His Touch. To my delight, I see there is going to be a forth book, In His Kiss and I'm looking forward to it. Some sexual content. JudyE
Grace Jennings is my favorite blemished bride. She learned early on that men couldn't be trusted. It started with her worthless father. First, he sent her out to beg rather than get a decent job. Second, he didn't pay for a doctor when she was injured, leaving her with a permanent handicap. Third, and lastly, he abandoned her and her little sister. Then the priest who was entrusted with the safety of orphans allowed her to be sold to the owner of a bordello. After suffering from unspeakable horrors, she escapes on a quest to find her sister who she was ripped away from. Along the way, she rescues as many girls as possible from the clutches of the bordello owner. When her rescue of her sister landed her with an extra person to care for, she didn't hesitate to help him too. Grace is incredibly brave. It was wonderful that she found a kindred spirit in Levi. He knew firsthand the pain that she suffered because he too was on an orphan train and was separated from his sister. He never got the reunion with his sibling but he got a second chance at happiness with Grace. It was admirable that they both decided to help other orphans learn a trade that that they could use to better their lives.
I just finished this book and as with all of Peggy's books I was hooked and could not put it down until I was finished. It is a good read.
