Along a Storied Trail


Kentucky packhorse librarian Tansy Calhoun doesn't mind the rough trails and long hours as she serves her Appalachian mountain community during the Great Depression. Yet she longs to find love like the heroines in her books. When a charming writer comes to town, she thinks she might have found it--or is the perfect man actually closer than she thinks?

Perdita Sweet has called these mountains home for so long she's nearly as rocky as the soil around her small cabin. Long ago she thought she could love, but when the object of her affection up and married someone else, she stopped giving too much of herself away to others.

As is so often the case, it's easier to see what's best for others than to see what's best for oneself, and Perdita knows who Tansy should choose. But why would anyone listen to the romantic advice of an old spinster?

Saddle up for a heartfelt story of love--love of family, love of place, and the love of a lifetime--from bestselling author Ann H. Gabhart

My thoughts: I loved this story and the historical details! I would of enjoyed a job like Tansy's, and can see a lot of my younger self in her. I loved that this is a Depression era story that is told from a different perspective, since I don't think I have really read a book set in Kentucky during that time period. 
I loved the vast array of characters and what they bring to the story. This is a delightful historical read to pick up and enjoy!
I received this book from Revell. This is my honest review.
