Drawing will be held on Friday and the winning name will be announced here as well as to the winner
REPUTATION is important in our world today. . .but . . .imagine back to 1892 in a town or village where EVERYONE knew most every one of the residents. . .how much more important was one's reputation???? Class distinctions were oh so obvious....
Setting: HOLLISTON, MAINE - 1892
Characters: Espy Estrada = Heroine,
Warren Brentwood = Hero
No matter how striking she is, a fisherman's daughter doesn't stand a chance with Warren Brentwood, the heir to the local lumber empire.
SCANDAL turns Espy's world upside down and she flees town in disgrace. Alone and penniless, Espy has nothing left but her faith when she is rescued by a missionary family.
Espy longs to return home freed from the lies that surrounded her departure. BUT. . .will ANYONE - particularly Warren - believe in her professed innocence?
Ruth Axtell has done it again. . .her 2013 release has given me one more reason to keep her books on my TO BE PURCHASED list AND once I've purchased those same books go onto my KEEPER SHELVES - to stay.
This is a great story and one of those I didn't want to STOP reading until I'd hit THE END. . .even if it meant spending the night with a book light so my dearest hubby could snore in the dark while I read. A VERY GOOD READ from my point of view and since I READ HUNDREDS of books per year. . .I think I can safely say. . .IT'S WELL WORTH YOUR TIME and LOSS OF SLEEP to read HER GOOD NAME ~ By~ Ruth Axtell - published by River North - of MOODY PUBLISHERS
Thank you, Ruth, for this book and the others you've entertained and taught me with. It's been a pleasure and I look forward in the very near future to reading A Heart's Rebellion. . .it may even show up here on StitchesThruTime. . . in another review!
