Beyond All Measure by Dorothy Love
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
My first time to read a book by Dorothy Love and I will read more, I am always happy to find a good Christian author and stories that feed my soul.
I esp liked the words by Carolina Sandell Berg "Day by Day"
He whose heart is kind beyond all measure
gives unto each day what he deams best--
Lovingly,its part of pain and pleasure,
mingling toil with peace and rest...
Hickory Ridge Romance series book #1 "Beyond All Measure" written by Dorothy Love.
I liked the beautiful cover and content did not disapoint me.
I hope you will take time to check this author and her work.
The story is of Ada a proper Bostonian who travels to Hickory Ridge Tennessee after her father and an aunt have died, she was devastated when a beau broke their engagement and left town suddenly which left her skittish as a colt about any other men in her life. Ada had been offered a job as a ladys companion, a job she felt she could do though she had few skills. She was an educated young woman and had traveled to Europe at one time.
