About the book
Ethan and Sophie long to share a future together. But the secrets they’re not sharing could tear them apart.
Sophie Caldwell has returned to Hickory Ridge, Tennessee, after years away. Despite the heartaches of her childhood, Sophie is determined to make a home, and a name, for herself in the growing town. A gifted writer, she plans to resurrect the local newspaper that so enchanted her as a girl.
Ethan Heyward’s idyllic childhood was shattered by a tragedy he has spent years trying to forget. An accomplished businessman and architect, he has built a majestic resort in the mountains above Hickory Ridge, drawing wealthy tourists from all over the country.
When Sophie interviews Ethan for the paper, he is impressed with her intelligence and astounded by her beauty. She’s equally intrigued but fears he will reject her if he learns about her shadowed past. Just as she summons the courage to tell him, Ethan’s own past unexpectedly and violently catches up with him, threatening not only his life but their budding romance.
I love books about the holidays, especially reading them through the holidays. The thing that made me really want to read this is learning that the character’s lives were not picture perfect. They both had a past, one of which they were frightened would ruin them.
Sophie is your historical version of a women’s rights advocate even though it still 1886 and the need for women to become accepted as much more than a wife and provider is still many years away from becoming a reality.
This story is charming, heart-warming and truly captivating for the die hard Christian Historical Romance fan. You will not be disappointed. You can read this one by itself. or you can go back and read the other 2 books in this series as well (which I totally recommend!)
