to @tessielouwrites on the release of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Genre: Historical Fiction – Romance/Family Saga
In order to help support her widowed mother and younger sister, Quinn makes the courageous decision to move from Boston to the mountains of Colorado to become a teacher. There, she meets Lord Alexander Barnes, a widower, and his adorable children, Josephine, Theo, Flynn, Cymbeline, and Fiona… and the biggest adventure of her life begins! “We cannot predict the joys and sorrows that await us on this journey through life. Courage is our only map.” The first in a new series that will alternate between historical fiction (this one was set in 1910) and contemporary fiction, this story was truly a balm for my soul during the current COVID-19 health crisis. After finding it difficult to focus on anything for any length of time, the writing style drew me in from the very first pages, allowing me a much-needed respite. I found it reminiscent of both Little House on the Prairie and The Sound of Music , and I couldn’t help but smile while reading. Infused with romance, sweetness, and kindness, it was truly what I needed to soothe my wounded heart. The end brought tears to my eyes and now I am left craving the next installment… “Do you think our descendants will be as happy here as we are?” I will have to wait to find out, but I sure hope so!
Lastly, I was amazed that so much of this story was applicable to our current situation, especially since it was written months before the pandemic began.
Location: 1910 Emerson Pass, Colorado (fictional mountain town)
