Returning to take on the teaching position offered to her in Blackberry Hill, Audrey is dismayed to find the job is no longer available. Placed in an untenable situation, Audrey reluctantly accepts an offer by the town’s undertaker she would rather refuse.
When disease spreads from an infected wagon train, Audrey’s faith and grit are tested as she struggles to help the dead and dying while fighting an unheeded attraction to widower, Eli Gray, a man determined to ignore her attentions.
Lori Copeland’s historical romances have been engaging readers’ hearts and minds for over twenty five years, the past nineteen of those years in Christian publishing. Lori’s experience shows as she creates memorable characters, an authentic town and a tried and true plot. I would have preferred greater interaction between Audrey and Eli and their minimal dialogue and connection did take away from the story for me. That being said, lovers of historical romance will find much to like in this second Belles of Timber Creek series as the sometimes hapless trio of Audrey, Copper and Willow continue their friendship throughout the trials and tribulations of living on the Texas frontier. The set up for Copper’s story is intriguing and One True Love will finalise the trilogy upon its release.
