Edith and the Mysterious Stranger
With mysterious letters, cattle rustlers, a spunky woman, the liar's fire, Halloween, and young love, there is always something happening. It is 1904 and Melinda is "with child" and threatening to miscarry. Her cousin Edith, a nurse, moves to Paris to care for her. Edith has wonderful qualities but never gives a man a second chance because her expectations are so high.
However, all that changes when a mysterious stranger begins to write to her. For the first time, she gets to know a man's soul before making any harsh judgments. Whoever he is, this man is a mystery and the best thing that has ever happened to her. The question that puzzles her is whether or not he's as wonderful in person as he is in his letters. In the meantime, Melinda and Gilbert's sixteen-year-old daughter, Jenny, falls for a young man of questionable character. David has sort of a wild side to him, but Jenny only notices the goodness about him.
I read Melinda and the Wild West, the first book in A Family Saga in Bear Lake, Idaho series. I'm eager to own more of them, but my TBR pile is so large, I hate to scoop up anything else until I whittle it down.
If Edith and the Mysterious Stranger is as well done as the first book, you'll be in for a treat and won't want to miss this giveaway.
