Along a Storied Trail by Ann H. Gabhart


Kentucky packhorse librarian Tansy Calhoun doesn't mind the rough trails and long hours as she serves her Appalachian mountain community during the Great Depression. Yet she longs to find love like the heroines in her books. When a charming writer comes to town, she thinks she might have found it--or is the perfect man actually closer than she thinks?

Perdita Sweet has called these mountains home for so long she's nearly as rocky as the soil around her small cabin. Long ago she thought she could love, but when the object of her affection up and married someone else, she stopped giving too much of herself away to others.

As is so often the case, it's easier to see what's best for others than to see what's best for oneself, and Perdita knows who Tansy should choose. But why would anyone listen to the romantic advice of an old spinster?

Saddle up for a heartfelt story of love--love of family, love of place, and the love of a lifetime--from bestselling author Ann H. Gabhart.

My Review

When I saw a new book by Ann H. Gabhart I knew I was in for a treat, and she sure didn't disappoint.

Wasn't long and I was ridding with Tansy Calhoun bring much loved books to the remote mountain people. This is the time of the Great Depression and as part of getting people back to work the government has developed jobs, and and Tansy has one. She rides horse back up the Appalachians in Kentucky to bring books, and messages.

Now a young writer has come to let visitors to the area know about historic events, and our girl will be taking him up into the mountains to help him meet and gather stories.

Will our girls head be turned by this worldly fellow? Or will she see what is right before her eyes?

We meet so many folks and see their lives during this page-turning read, and some are so memorable, you won't want to leave, and yes, there is another book coming!

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