My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Series A Hickory Ridge Romance book 3"Every Perfect Gift" by Dorothy Love
Sophie has spent a lifetime guarding her heart and a long-held secret. It will take all of her courage to speak the truth and embrace the future God has planned for her.
The year is 1886, and Sophie Robillard returns to Hickory Ridge, Tennessee, after living in Texas for 15 years as the ward of Ada and Wyatt Caldwell.
Sophie from the time she was a little girl felt like an outsider, others didnt include her and she missed the bond of a Mother-Daughter when her mother left her with a family member and she was put into orphanage at early age. The Caldwell's raised her and she was deeply grateful and loved them but still missed and wanted her Mother. Sophie had a strength that helped her as she became determined to come back to Tennessee and start up a newspaper...
Sophie met Ethan soon after she was back and his childhood too had brokenness and the two seemed to become friends. From the first time she interviewed him because of his work at "Blue Smoke" a development run by a wealthy man who thought more of himself then others and wanted the develpment to be a place where wealthy folks would come and play, He hired men at low wages and the area where they lived while working for him was below grade. Ethan did all he could to make the mens lives better. Sophie saw the goodness in this man and he in her..
Both Sophie and Ethan carry secrets from childhood and it is interesting story to read and learn that from mistakes we make in life or things gone awry, still we can be forgiven and forgive others making our own lives richer for it. I enjoyed these characters and the others that touched their lives and am sure you will too.
The beautiful cover may make you pick the book up to read but the story woven inside will hold your interest and keep you turing the pages to find out what will happen next.
