ABOUT THE BOOK
What a beautifully written story! One that captivated my heart from the beginning!
Fast action wonderful characters and an awesome setting! Susan May Warren has added it all in!
The way she describes the scenes is breathtaking and makes me feel like I'm in Nigeria. I really appreciated her research.
She's really an awesome author! Her stories never disappoint.
I think my favorite part of the whole book was the romance part. Not too slow and not too fast. Oh my! "Sigh"
The other favorite thing about this book was the inspirational messages.
I mean, what's not to love about this awesome book! And add Suasan May Warren to the mix and you have a roller coaster ride for sure!
I very highly recommend! You be on the edge of your seat all the way through!
My thanks to Revelle reads for a copy of this book! I was NOT required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.

ABOUT THE BOOK
If any place on God's earth was designed to help one heal, it is Meadowland. Surely here, at her brother-in-law's Kentucky farm, Rose and her daughters can recover from the events of the recent past--the loss of her husband during the 1918 influenza epidemic, her struggle with tuberculosis that required a stay at a sanatorium, and her girls' experience in an orphanage during her illness. At Meadowland, past troubles become rich soil in which faith can grow.
Dirk Meadows may have opened his home to his late brother's widow and her girls, but he keeps his heart tightly closed. The roots of his pain run deep, and the evidence of it is written across his face. Badly scarred by a fire and abandoned by the woman he loved, Dirk fiercely guards his heart from being hurt again.
But it may be that his visitors will bring light back into his world and unlock the secret to true healing.
I was very happy to receive this book and no I wasn't disappointed at all!
Gabhart is a wonderful author with awesome descriptions of Kentucky that makes her stories special.
This story is my favorite and will be added to my collection of favorites.
It's my favorite because of the sweet love that was within it's pages. Not overly done at all!
The beautiful messages especially about how the Lord can make the hardest of hearts soften. I really liked that one.
The one in Ecclesiastics is a gentle reminder that there is a time and place for everything.
My heart ached for Dirk and everything he went through. I found myself wanting to cry as his story unfolded for sad tears and happy ones too.
The girls stole my heart the most. I felt their fears, their joys and sometimes their sorrows too.
Gabhart writes a powerful story about forgiveness, love and trust but most of all forgiveness especially yourself.
I love the way she uses Louisville as the backdrop for her story.
There were definitely certain people in this book that I didn't like and I felt that she got what she deserved.
This book seems like it is a version of Beauty and the Beast but it is my favorite version.
I love this author's books because she leaves my heart feeling full and very satisfied.
I love her Kentucky stories because that was once my home as well and I miss it but like Dirk I've moved on. So, through her stories I get to go home again
5 stars for a job well done!

ABOUT THE BOOK
Mel Ellis knows that her eating disorder is ruining her life. Everyone tells her rehab is her best option, but she can't bring herself to go. Broke, broken, and empty in more ways than one, Mel launches one last-ditch effort to make hers a story worth telling. She will walk her own road to recovery along the lesser-known trails of the North American wilderness.
Though she is physically and mentally unprepared to face the difficulties that lay ahead, she sets off on foot from Michigan. Her goal? Mount Rainier National Park in Washington State. During the long journey, she meets strangers with their own stories, as well as ghosts from her past who can no longer be ignored. But though the land she travels threatens her success at every turn, it's her own dark thoughts she'll have to overcome in order to find peace in the life and the body she has been given.
In my opinion I felt that this new to me author has done an amazing job with the tough subjects that are involved. At times I've found myself wanting to cry because it was painful watching Mel go through her journey. There were other times that I found myself rooting for her as well.
I like that this book shows us how there are still some wonderful people out there. The cover. Very interesting with pretty colors. Don't think I've ever seen a cover quite like this one. I love it for it's uniqueness.
I think for me it was a lesson learned. One that I really appreciated.
I would however view this book more as Women's fiction even though it had some lovely inspirational messages in the story.
