Every Perfect Gift
Every Perfect Gift by Dorothy Love
Sophie has spent a lifetime guarding her heart and a long-held secret. It will take all of her courage to speak the truth and embrace the future God has planned for her.
The year is 1886, and Sophie Robillard returns to Hickory Ridge, Tennessee, after living in Texas for 15 years as the ward of Ada and Wyatt Caldwell. Now that the town's population has exploded, her intention is to reopen the long-defunct newspaper office that so captivated her when she was still an orphan. The rejection she experienced as a child because of her mixed parentage has left deep scars that she hopes can be healed by succeeding in this new venture.
Ethan Heyward was uprooted from his home as a boy following an unspeakable tragedy. Horace Blakely, a millionaire businessman, took Ethan under his wing and eventually put him in charge of the construction and opening of Blue Smoke resort in Hickory Ridge.
They meet when Sophie arrives at Blue Smoke to interview Ethan for her newspaper. As their attraction deepens, each hides a secret that, if revealed, could end their relationship.
I had been looking forward to reading this book for a while, and I was excited to finally read it. However, I could not get into it. I read about half of it and just put it down. It was moving really slowly and I was having to force myself to read it. There just was not much going on. I would like to say this though- I may pick it up again and love it. The last couple weeks or so I have been in a fast paced read kind of mood. That is not to say though that I won't enjoy this book next year. It is just not for me at the moment. Since I did not finish it, I don't want to give it a rating, but if I had to I would give it two stars. I love the cover, and think that many people may like this book. I did not hate it, it just was not holding my attention.
I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
