Full of resolve, young widow Willow Peterson decides to pursue her dreams to be an artist as she settles into a new life in the growing mountain town of Cripple Creek. When she lands a job working as a portrait painter with handsome entrepreneur and photographer Trenton Van Der Veer, the road before Willow seems to be taking a better-than-anticipated turn.
With questions tugging at several hearts in town, including the Sinclair Sisters’ beloved Miss Hattie, change is traveling down the tracks as several unexpected visitors make their way out West. Will the new arrivals threaten the deep family bonds of the Sinclair sisters and the roots of love that are just taking hold for Willow?
Filled with the resonating questions that all women face, this romance awakens hope against grief, love against loss, and dreams against life’s unexpected turns.
I was intrigued to read this book because it has a photographer as one of the main characters. I appreciated learning details of how they took photos in the 1800's. Hodgson allowed this book to be a very easy read with very little conflict in it. I did appreciate how I felt the book to be Christian...as in the Christian faith was seen throughout the entire book, God wasn't thrown in at the last second like many other books are written.
