Belonging by Robin Lee Hatcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Robin Lee Hatcher is sharing another wonderful story with us! She has gifted us with some wonderful characters that we can be absorbed into.
The Tale is set in Idaho in the late 1800's, Felicia Kistofferson has arrived in Frenchman's Bluff to become the Teacher. Her life hasn't been easy, she became an orphan, when her Mom died. Put into an orphanage in Chicago, she was put on the Orphan Train, and taken by a couple, that wanted a Housekeeper. She was under the impression that the Kristofferson's had adopted her, but sadly when they passed, she found out the truth!
Colin Murphy has been raising his daughter on his own, since his wife passed 5 years prior. He doesn't like the idea of a teacher with no experience, and figures she won't last.
The town, like most small towns has a busy body that rules!! You wonder if things will work out the way the one who rules wants, or the way God wants?
There is a lot warm fuzzy feelings in this book, loved how when things go wrong there is someone there to help. Makes you wish you lived there! Throughout the whole story I Loved the deepening relationships with God!
Included at the end of the book is an Epilogue...yes how I love that. You get to glimpse the future!
I received this book from Netgalley and the Publisher Zondervan, and was not required to give a positive review.
