About the book:
Kentucky packhorse librarian Tansy Calhoun doesn’t mind the rough trails and long hours as she serves her Appalachian mountain community during the Great Depression. Yet she longs to find love like the heroines in her books. When a charming writer comes to town, she thinks she might have found it–or is the perfect man actually closer than she thinks?
Perdita Sweet has called these mountains home for so long she’s nearly as rocky as the soil around her small cabin. Long ago she thought she could love, but when the object of her affection up and married someone else, she stopped giving too much of herself away to others.
As is so often the case, it’s easier to see what’s best for others than to see what’s best for oneself, and Perdita knows who Tansy should choose. But why would anyone listen to the romantic advice of an old spinster?
Saddle up for a heartfelt story of love–love of family, love of place, and the love of a lifetime–from bestselling author Ann H. Gabhart.
This one was really good! I really enjoyed it! I had thought that it might be similar to The Moonlight School by Suzanne Woods Fisher, but it was really different. I thinks fans of that book will enjoy this one. I really liked Tansy and Caleb. I even had a soft spot for Perdita. I almost wish that there was a little bit more to this story to finish wrapping things up. I would recommend this one for fans of historical fiction!
