The Hope of Azure Springs
Seven years ago, orphaned and alone, Em finally arrived at a new home in Iowa after riding the orphan train. But secrets from her past haunt her, and her new life in the Western wilderness is a rough one. When her guardian is shot and killed, Em, now nineteen, finally has the chance to search for her long-lost sister, but she won't be able to do it alone.
For Azure Springs Sheriff Caleb Reynolds, securing justice for the waifish and injured Em is just part of his job. He's determined to solve every case put before him in order to impress his parents and make a name for himself. Caleb expects to succeed. What he doesn't expect is the hold this strange young woman will have on his heart.
Debut author Rachel Fordham invites historical romance readers to the charming town of Azure Springs, Iowa, where the people care deeply for one another and, sometimes, even fall in love.
My thoughts: This book is excellent! I fell in love with Em from the beginning, as she recovered from her injury and learned to live again. She is completely unconventional and I loved her for that! I loved that Rachel brought the characters to life and really has a beautiful underlying message to the story, that beauty is found when you truly love someone and anyone can be quite beautiful if they have a kind heart. I highly recommend picking this book up, since it is a new favorite here!
I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
