Historical Romance (clean)

Even if nothing else is certain … love still is. 

Ruby Foster loves her job as a Pack Horse librarian, but secretly she dreams of being a nurse. Since there are no schools for nursing in the hills of rural Kentucky in 1937, Ruby contents herself with harvesting medicinal plants, delivering her beloved library books, and dreaming. Dreaming mostly of a life that doesn’t leave her living in the past. Until one day she discovers that “past” camped out by the Hell for Certain creek. Could it really be Cole, the one who left her heartbroken so many years ago? Just when she starts to believe in her dreams and hope for love again, Cole reveals his true colors. Or is the truth she sees only another illusion? When nothing else in the world seems certain, can the bonds of friendship bring one searching heart and one lost soul together again?

My Thoughts:

Cole and Ruby were the best of friends during their adolescent years. Their friendship seemed to take on a whole new meaning one night with a kiss, then Cole and his family are gone. Fast forward to 1937, Ruby is pushing thirty and still remembers her best friend, but she also tries not to wish too much for a family all her own. She is happy to join in with the joy of her other girlfriends as they marry and have children. But Ruby is an independent sort, she was adopted by those she called grandparents, and they loved her till they passed. No, Ruby is a strong independent woman and someday her dreams may come true, but until then she is just fine. Then Cole steps back into her life.

Cole did not come from a good home. His father was something else, and throughout the story we get snippets of the past and how everything went down when his parents were forced out of the town. Cole wants to come back to the only place he ever thought of as home and make things right. Cole wants to come back to Ruby, his once upon a time best friend and the girl he loves.

Unfortunately, things do not go smoothly for these two. Just when Ruby thinks she and Cole has a chance at forever after, Cole's love for her comes into question. Is Cole different from his father, or has he been conning her this whole time? This was a good redemption and second chance romance that takes you back to a time when like today, things were not always certain.
