About this Book
It’s 1856, and Kathryn is convinced her life is over. Her father has sent her to Seattle to find a husband, and the backwoods settlement offer none of the comforts and culture she was accustomed to in San Francisco. Will she find anyone who understands her love of painting? And can she really be expected to work as a maid?
Jason has come to Seattle to work in the new sawmill and to escape painful memories of the life he knew before. He has no time for romance not with the rumors of a looming war with the Indians. So why can’t he get Kathryn out of his mind?
Will there be a future for Seattle… and for Kathryn and Jason?
About the Authors
The second book was as good if not better than the first. We get to see some old friends from the first book and meet some new ones. This story contained a wonderful romance, some tension not only between the two main characters but for the young town of Seattle. The authors did a great job throwing some surprises into the story that made it interesting and very touching.
Initially I struggled with Kathryn and wanted to slap her more than once. But as the story developed and she came to terms with her life in Seattle I came to love her. My heart broke from almost the beginning for Jason. It was also fun to see the Hughes and Denny families as well as Red Dog and the other lumberjacks.
When I read a story I look for what lessons I can learn from it, this one has several. Kathryn reminds us to be content where we are and not to be too proud. There are lessons to learn from Jason as well, but I’ll leave it to you to find those.
Although a book two you could read this story and enjoy it even if you’ve not read the first one.
