My Heart Belongs in Glenwood Springs, Colorado: Millie's Resolve






Journey now to healing spa town of Glenwood Springs, Colorado in 1885
Where the past and present collide and a woman is on the precipice of unexpected love.

Millie Cooper, fisherman’s-daughter-turned-nurse, flees a painful entanglement with the wealthy Drexel family who summered near her childhood home in Nantucket, only to encounter them again six years later in Glenwood Springs. The serenity of Millie Cooper’s mountain hideaway in a town with healing springs is disrupted when she faces caring for the elderly mother and the expectant wife of Stephen Drexel, the man she’d once loved—at the request of John Drexel, the man who’d kept them apart. Will

Millie forgive the wrongs she feels were done to her, or will she come to see them as a blessing in disguise that lead her to greater joys?

My Review




I really enjoyed this read, and the pages flew as I was reading, a poor girl, rich boy, back in the late 1880’s, and in beautiful Colorado.
You might want to have the tissues handy for this one, there are some very sad parts, as we meet reality head on, and our girl is there for everyone, including those who seem to really dislike her.
We walk in Millie Cooper’s shoes, and as her we are a strong, smart young woman, and full of compassion for her fellow man. She doesn’t seem to be very lucky in love, but we see where God is leading her, and how he is there for her.
I actually wanted more once the last page was turned, but the story did wrap up like I would have wanted it to.

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
