Beyond the Valley
All Sarah Carr ever wanted was to be loved and appreciated. Growing up in an orphanage, she jumps on the chance to marry when a net maker offers to make her his wife. Life on the wild shores of England is unpredictable, and Sarah is soon left a heartbroken widow with a baby on the way. Left with no family, she turns to her husband's family for help, only to be sold into an indentured servant position that sends her to America.
I haven't read the previous two books in this series, but that didn't keep me from enjoying this one! I like that the novels compliment one another, but can also stand alone.
While the story was predictable and fast pace (not allowing a lot of time for plot or character development) it is still a sweet story. Fans of the other two in the series should be happy with the finale!
