A Worthy Pursuit by Karen Witemeyer







Stone Hammond is the best tracker in Texas. He never comes home empty-handed. So when a wealthy railroad investor hires him to find his abducted granddaughter, Stone eagerly accepts.

Charlotte Atherton, former headmistress of Sullivan’s Academy for Exceptional Youths, will do anything to keep her charges safe, especially the little girl entrusted to her care after her mother’s death. Charlotte promised Lily’s mother she’d keep the girl away from her unscrupulous grandfather, and nothing will stop Charlotte from fulfilling that pledge. Not even the handsome bounty hunter with surprisingly honest eyes who comes looking for them.

When the teacher he’s after produces documentation that shows she’s the little girl’s legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he’s been led to believe. Is Miss Atherton villain or victim? She acts more like a loving mother than an abductress, and the children in her care clearly adore her. Should Stone break his perfect record?

Then a new danger threatens, and Charlotte is forced to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone becomes determined to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he’s ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte’s heart.

My Review

I really didn’t want to close the covers on this book; I loved how the main characters placed their life in the hands of God. At times Charlotte Atherton had to dig deep to trust, but what a heart this woman had. She risks it all for her love of the young ones in her care, the children are all very gifted, but I felt she would have been there for any child.
Enter a man who is on the side of the law, and feeling he is doing the right thing, and who wouldn’t, returning a stolen child to her Grandfather. He might be a top of his game bounty hunter, but he does have a good heart, and when the young girl tells him about her Mother and her Mother’s wishes, he has second thoughts.
There is a lot of drama in this fast read, and you wonder if all are going to come out alive. Yes there is a lot of evil out there, and greed, but there are a lot of people of faith in here, and you will love how God shows his hand here. A really great, fast read, and sometimes your heart will be in your throat. Enjoy!
