Along the Rio Grande (Love on the Santa Fe, #1) by Tracie Peterson

 

Is her compassion doing more harm than good?

Recently widowed Susanna Jenkins has decided to follow her family to the booming town of San Marcial, New Mexico, for a fresh start and to aid in her family's sudden change in fortune. They are tasked with managing her uncle's new Grand Hotel, and it takes all her patience to try to help her parents see the good of their circumstances and relinquish their sense of entitlement.

She's hopeful when her brother becomes determined to get a job and make his own way, and she feels drawn to his kind boss, Owen Turner, who works as a boilermaker for the Santa Fe's train shops in town. But the hard work only seems to fuel her brother's anger, and his rough new friends give her pause.

When misguided choices put Susanna's family in an even more precarious situation, she worries her help has only made things worse. Leaving her family to fend for themselves seems like the best option, but how can she walk away from the true friendships--and love--that she's found?

My Review


 
Tracie Peterson writes beautiful Christian fiction, and this one sure didn't disappoint! In fact it was a page-turner! I needed answers.

Susanna's family have been brought to their knees, so to speak, they were born with the proverbial silver spoons in their mouths, but the mighty have fallen, but we are there to see how they deal with working for a living!

You will love the character of Susanna, and the people who are put in her path! This booming town of San Marcial, NM, a railroad town, but full of people who live their faith and welcomes this family! Will they be able to accept?

We are enriched with the descriptive part of this country, and the giving people who embrace these newcomers, along with some sweet romance!

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