So when Hugh Thomas rescues the new swimming instructor at the elegant Broadwater Natatorium from near drowning in the plunge, how can anyone believe the freedom to enjoy swimming, competition, and a healthy body is an appropriate activity for a proper lady? Hugh is about to find out status quo is the starting line for a courageous woman with a dream!

Dreams can come true

Taking the Plunge by Angela Breidenbach is a charming story of time past in Helena, Montana. Delphina, a woman who knows her own mind and supports the suffragette movement has come to the Hotel Broadwater and Natatorium to be the ornamental swim teacher for females. Her first encounter with Hugh, the manager, and teacher for the boys comes with a splash and some scolding remarks. Hotel owner, Mr. Broadwater, expects them to work together but Delphina's not so sure about that. How can they ever work as a team when their philosophies of life clash? Can they make a way to become partners long enough to help the new natatorium successful? In this 3rd installment of the Montana Beginnings series, the author gives a glimpse of history, a sweet romance with delightful characters, and a story of faith in a God who works in our lives to make dreams come true.
The narration of the audiobook by Tristan Leder was well done and made the book enjoyable to listen to. I was given an audio copy of the book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

My Favorite so far

The author manages to pack so much romance, history, and community interaction into this novella, I felt like I had read a longer novel.

This is the story of growth: The growth of a relationship, The growth of independence for women, The growth of a community in the formerly wild West.

Highly recommended.
