PfftAnyway this is my favorite Harleuin Love Inspired historical or otherwise so far Ok Not the worst book but not the best I liked the road trip the otherwise so far Ok Not the worst book but not the best I liked the road trip the characters went on with the male leads sister but I didnt uite feel the love between the two main characters but the setting was interesting and I liked all the secondary characters Good book to distract me from my Hendrick Simmons a mechanic still feels like Mariah Meeks is the only one for him
"But Her Heart Is Promised "her heart is promised the Orphaned Children s Society Problem is that her family is well off financially and he feels inadeuate about his current financial state When Mariah feels the need to travel to Montana to help an orphaned child she never thought that Hendrick would want to accompany her Because of a secret Mariah has kept hidden she has convinced herself that romance cannot be hers so in turn she hides her true self from others Could Hendrick melt this career girls heartWhen she meets Frank Gillard in Montana he is not at all what he seemed being a most hospitable and charming host She must make a decision about a child s future Yet sometimes danger "Lurks Around The Corner "around the corner hides itself wellI wasn t sure that I would enjoy the novel at first but after a few chapters I was totally captivated and found that I had a hard time putting it down There were twists and turns within that kept me turning the pages of this suspenseful and romantic read Scenery and dialogue worked within the storyline and I found the overall message inspiring I would recommend this book to others At first I was not so sure about this book as I m not a fan of authors that make women bossy and continue to make errors of judgement but her errors did not hurt others she ended up realizing she did make errors and she kept relying on a higher power But as the book progressed the story redeemed itself with the many issues that presented of that time period the Native American perils the mixed race challenges the unscrupulous people and the good people I e Christine has written another great book I enjoyed it so much and couldn t put it down until I finished it Again she incorporates so many interesting elements Besides learning about travel by car in the 1920s and the difficulties for orphans she also touches upon the situation of schools for Native Americans to westernize them I wish all children had an advocate like Mariah Meeks I look forward to other stories from Pearlman Michigan. Es a cross country drive that's too dangerous to take on her own For the child's sake Hendrick agrees to join her Can a journey of 2000 miles bridge the distance between themand reveal where Mariah truly belon. .

S works her novel ALL ROADS LEAD HOME is filled with a soft spirituality that whispers across the pages Ms Johnson does a superb job in creating a world where we "join Mariah and Hendrick on their 2000 mile journey down the road to home 25 stars "Mariah and Hendrick on their 2000 mile journey down the road to home 25 stars expected a road trip story and it turned out to be of a melodrama with the evil bad guy trying to cheat the noble oung girl this was a seuel in one of Christine Johnson s books All Roads Lead Home Mariah was an unusual girl headstrong some would say She works with Children and doesnt think she should marry as she is unable to have children She had turned do Grade B His lips brushed her forehead and then her temple The waves of emotion tossed their tops windblown and she lifted her face as if struggling for breath but it wasn t air she needed She reuired something far nourishing She needed to know she was loved and with the gentlest touch of his lips to hers he gave her that I felt compelled to purchase this because the title and cover were actually uniue and relevant to the story Add in the 1920s road trip setting along with the Poor BoyRich Girl Unreuited Love premise and I was doomedFortunately I wasn t disappointed There was nothing flashy about the writing or the characters like The Maverick Preacher it was just a really good story told really well But the two books are very different in their presentation of the faith messages and I generally prefer inspirationals where the spirituality is a strong undercurrent and not a battle of Bible verses so All Roads Lead Home gets the edge with the B grade The suspenseful stuff went in a direction I wasn t expecting with intrigue on an Indian reservation but I thought the sensitive issues of prejudice land ownership and education were handled really well The author never resorted to whitewashing the history or resolving the conflict with White People to the Rescue The only thing that bugged me were the Big Misunderstandings This is my least favorite plot trope because it always makes the inner conflicts feel so forced and contrived From
