Gracie's Surrender (Shenandoah Brides, #4) by Blossom Turner

 

Helping the orphan children in Richmond just might overturn everything Gracie thought she knew, including the value of love.

Gracie Williams has always had an adventurous streak, which led her from her home in the Shenandoah Valley to Richmond, Virginia, where she can devote her life to the orphan children. Though her beauty has brought on the advances of many men, she has no plans to marry, and finds suitors an unfortunate irritation she doesn’t have time for—much to her parents’ chagrin.

When she befriends Matthew Weston, the mature and serious orphanage superintendent, she confides in him and believes he shares her goals. Neither are prepared for the sparks that fly. Tension grows as Matthew falls in love with her, yet realizes he is just another man in the long line of would-be suitors.

A family crisis, an orphan train, and the plight of a sweet orphan named Emma throw the couple together in deep and meaningful ways. But will this be enough for Gracie to embrace a new way of thinking, and the gift of love that only true soulmates can share?

My Review


 
This is the fourth book in this series that I have been gifted to be able to read, they are so good, and when it ends I can’t wait for the next, and there is one more to come!
This is Gracie’s story, she made a promise to God when she was twelve to remain unmarried, and put her all into helping orphans!
I loved when determined Gracie felt an attraction to Matthew Weston, the Raleigh Orphanage Superintendent, and sought after bachelor, and her new boss.
The love and caring these two give these unfortunate children, and then there is that special child, and we follow this pair as unwanted sparks fly!, These two make a journey to bring these children new lives, and we are on the Orphan Train. I loved how these children were placed where they really wanted to live, well most, and some scary moments happen!
There are surprises along the way, and some things don’t turn out like I expected, but how I enjoyed this read!
I received this book through author, and was not required to give a positive review.
