Orphan Kate Evans lands the perfect job out of college, working as a nanny for a rich little girl at a remote ranch in Utah. But, her determination to make a life for herself is challenged when her employer comes back to the ranch and proves to be a difficult man to work with. Can they learn to work together? Will Kate be able to work through her past and grab hold of the future she has always dreamed of?
My thoughts: This book is a wonderful, modern day version of Jane Eyre! I enjoyed getting to know Kate and the rest of the character as their story unfolds. I like that the story line was a lot like the classic, yet the author made the story her own by adding her own touch. She did a fabulous job of developing the characters and giving them depth. I also thought it was neat how Kate's faith is woven into the story. The story has some great discussions on living one's faith.
I look forward to reading the next book by this new voice in fiction!
I received a copy of this book from Cedar Fort in exchange for my honest review.
