About the book:

     Searching for something she cannot define and breaking under the stress as a rising star at The Metropolitan Opera, Grace Galveston travels to Tallulah Falls, Georgia, for a reprieve. In the summer of 1886, Tallulah Gorge, with its multiple waterfalls, spectacular mountain scenery, and lavish resort hotels, was already known as “The Niagara of the South.” Even amid the crowds and excitement surrounding the attempt of an aerialist to cross the chasm on a high wire, Grace hopes to find peace. Unexpectedly, though, the trip sheds light on the secret pain in her heart. Can the blessing of friendship and the possibility of love with a local minister guide her toward healing? Or will their differences and the call of her life back in New York mean even greater heartbreak?

My review:

     A charming tale of God’s redeeming grace!

     I found Grace Galveston to be an enchanting character. She carries so much hurt within her heart. It is coupled with doubt as to whether or not she is worthy of love. Throughout the story I wanted to see her heart healed and her surrounded by the love that she deserved.

     I really enjoyed Daniel Monroe as her love interest. He is such a strong believer and a wonderful example of trusting God. I liked the fact that when it came to loving a woman he found himself unsure of himself and what God wanted him to do. This is so true of all of us when our emotions are deeply involved.

     There are a number of marvelously detailed descriptions of Tallulah Falls and the history of this location. I was delighted with them and learning of this part of Georgia.

     I thoroughly enjoyed this novella and am highly recommending it. It is getting a rating of 5 stars from me.
