Book Summary: Celia is in desperate need of a change–a change of scenery, a change of pace, and a complete redo of all relationships. Not knowing what else to do, she opens a map, closes her eyes, and lets fate decide her future. Then she packs her meager belongings and buys a one-way ticket to a little town on the fringes of Oregon’s Deschutes National Forest called Sisters. She’s wanted a family for years. Will she find one in Sisters?
What Celia doesn’t plan to find is a strange Chinese woman whose meddling ways keep throwing her in the path of a handsome, but reserved, forest ranger. But no matter how kind or dependable Silas seems to be, there are some things in Celia’s past that neither of them can escape, and this time, the damage might be too much to mend.
I LOVED this novel. It isn’t my normal fair. Just like you, my life is a fast frenzy of trying to get all I need to done while carving out a little time to unwind. I often seek out entertaining fiction. Don’t get me wrong, if an author can engage me in fun and depth, I’m all in. However, light and fluffy are not evil words in my romance plots. (If I want Tolstoy, I’ll read Tolstoy) So image getting a novel that satisfies my unwinding needs, but envelops my heart in the process. Ms. White characters have depth, are three dimensional, are flawed and are completely lovable. I want to know these people and this town.
The power of fiction, especially romantic fiction, often gets overlooked in its ability to change a life. I would propose that would not be the case in this novel. It emits warmth, reality, concern and hope. All while causing me, the reader; to want to do better, think of others better. In a word: lovely.
Content: Clean. Brief, non-descriptive sexual violence, kissing. I would recommend for older teens.
