This is the third book of the West Virginia series by Sarah Loudin Thomas. She gives the reader a juicy slice of mountain life in West Virginia. The latest one follows Ella as she moves back home to help out with her grandmother, Perla, following Perla’s stroke. Ella has a history with a wrong-for-her man who continues to pursue her, to her chagrin. It doesn’t help that Ella’s mother seems unable to listen to her daughter about the need to be away and done with this selfish lawyer. Finally we learn the secret of Sadie’s birth to unwed mother Perla. What scandal! What redemption! Ella also finds new romance blossoming with Richard and also Seth. Which is the right guy for her? Wonderful story by a great storyteller.
Thanks to Bethany House for providing me an ARC for a review in my own words. I will be watching for more stories from Sarah Loudin Thomas. I find them engaging.
