Where the Road Bends by Rachel Fordham



As Norah King surveys her family land in Iowa in 1880, she is acutely aware that it is all she has left, and she will do everything in her power to save it--even if that means marrying a man she hardly knows. Days before her wedding, Norah discovers an injured man on her property. Her sense of duty compels her to take him in and nurse him back to health. Little does she realize just how much this act of kindness will complicate her life and threaten the future she's planned.

Norah's care does more than aid Quincy Barnes's recovery--it awakens his heart to possibilities. Penniless and homeless, he knows the most honorable thing he can do is head on down the road and leave Norah to marry her intended. But walking away from the first person to believe in him proves much harder than he imagined.

Rachel Fordham invites you to experience the strength and beauty of love forged in the crucible of hardship in this heartwarming story.



About The Author


Rachel Fordham has long been fascinated by all things historical or in the words of her children “old stuff”. Often the historical trivia she discovers is woven into her children's bedtime tales. Despite her love for good stories she didn’t attempt writing a novel until her husband challenged her to do so (and now she’s so glad he did). Since that time she’s often been found typing or researching while her youngest child naps or frantically writing plot twists while she waits in the school pick-up line. In addition to her passion for storytelling she enjoys reading, being outdoors and seeing new places. Rachel lives with her husband and children on an island in Washington state.

My Review

I loved this book, the author just kept giving, and I kept page turning!

The book opens with a body, and buzzards circling, Norah happens to see the birds and discover the man, and then we see her struggle to help, including throwing rocks at the birds!

This book pulled me in and didn't let go, there is so much going on, and second chances, guilt, forgiveness, and living ones faith! I loved how these characters kept giving back to help their fellow man, and didn't step down in times of adversity! There are some unsavory people here, and we wish for them not to succeed, but there are also some that bring a smile, especially Nels. Come and get lost in the 1880's in Iowa!

We are gifted with an Epilogue!

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