Publisher's Summary

In this inspirational historical romance, Edith is a nurse and has gone home to assist her cousin who is “with child.” Edith has wonderful qualities but never gives a man a second chance because her expectations are so high. However, all that changes when a mysterious stranger starts writing to her. For the first time, she gets to know a man's inner soul before making any harsh judgments.
Whoever he is, this man is a mystery and the best thing that has ever happened to her. The question that puzzles her is whether or not he's as wonderful in person as he is in his letters.

A literary Dream!

Seriously, if you are a teacher and need a book for kids to read to do vocab, for sure this book is one you want. I would say 8th grade and higher.

If you are in need of a book that reiterates what and who a good human should act like, get this book.

If you want a good wholesome story about believing in your Faith, get this book.

I am not a big Christian reader, however, I love listening to Linda's book. The author notes in this book blew me away!

I love the word use in this book, throw an eight letter word out there, and Linda breaks it down so anyone can understand the meaning of said word. The characters are relatable with strong family ties.

I would say this book is about simpler times, but it wasn't simpler back then. More proper and polite with the best of intentions. If you want you children to learn proper mannerisms, definitely let them read this book and then talk about it. Make a home comprehension test, I would. Great Book!

A Sweet Story

This is book two in the Bear Lake Family Saga and introduces us to Edith, a talented nurse who returns home to Paris Idaho to nurse her cousin Melinda. Edith judges men based on first appearances, which leads her to dismiss most of the men she's introduced to. She faces one matchmaking attempt after another when she returns home, but her new suitors don't interest her. When she receives a letter from a mysterious man, she decides to get to know the writer before judging him.

This book can be read as a standalone, but is best enjoyed after reading the first. It catches up with Melinda, Gilbert, and Jenny from the first book, and little Jenny is all grown up and ready to meet men of her own! I really enjoyed the banter between the characters, and how the author used music to bring the characters together. She wrote in a simple and straightforward manner, and placed an emphasis on family values.

The narrator did a great job with the different characters and even singing parts, which brought something special to the story. She has a voice that's easy to listen to. I received a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.
