With a ranch to run Grace Bidwell has little time to think about love. When a handsome ranch hand comes looking for work, will she allow herself to hope for a new future?
Trusting Grace by author Maggie Brendan is an interesting historical novel that takes place in the Wild West. Both the main characters, Grace and Robert have been widowed, and must learn to love again despite the various pains they cling to from their pasts. A story of faith, trust, and a goose named Bluebell, this is certainly a book you should look into (and at, I mean have you seen that cover).
This was an emotional story, spanning over the lives of far more characters than just Grace and Robert. We also read about Robert’s three stepchildren and how they are coping with the loss of their mother and having to rely on someone who doesn’t even seem to want them. Grace’s father and what he thinks of his illness, as well as Grace’s love life. And we also get the stories of Ginny, Grace’s friend, and Stella an eccentric spinster who owns a boardinghouse. Told by using six points of views, you get the perspectives of these characters throughout the book as you piece together their stories.
I received a copy of this book for free. I was not required to post a positive review and the views and opinions expressed are my own.
