Newport Rhode Island in the last decades of the nineteenth century was a stunningly beautiful and glamorous playground for the rich during the summer months, and perfect setting for a romance between a rich young man from New York City and a local girl who works for his family. The two couldn't possibly expect to have anything in common, as he is expected to follow his father in a financial career and she is merely a maid with a mother who takes care of local children while their parents work.
Arthur Davenport spoiled and bored, unsure of his place in his family and in the eyes pf God, truly meets his match in Josie Warren, who is often just a nit hard on herself for not being the perfect Christian in thought as well as deed. The two meet on the famous Cliff Walk, and neither of them can imagine where or how their instant attraction will take them as he struggles to make his parents understand that his calling is the same as hers, to help those less fortunate. He has no money of his own, and if they disinherit him out of disapproval, how can he help Josie, who has spent her life working hard to help support herself and her mother? More importantly, how can he convince her that he would gladly give up his life of luxury just to be with her?
Wow what a truly amazing book. I absolutely loved it. I couldn't put it down. It is so sweet and romantic. I would highly recommend this book. I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series.
Happy Reading Everyone!

What are you thankful for?

For Camara, writing fiction is almost compulsive, but her own dark secret maybe the best story she can ever tell. For Michael, swimming and writing fit his introverted personality perfectly, but meeting a smart and beautiful girl at The Penultimate makes stepping outside of his comfort zone easy.
All four will compete against each other along with 96 other high school juniors for the chance of a lifetime: a full scholarship to a prestigious private college. Some students will do anything to win, but others may pay the price.
I thought this book was well written. It was a very interesting story. I found some unexpected twists in this book.
I look forward to reading more books by this author.
Happy Reading Everyone!
