Happy Friday!

The book I’m featuring this week is:

Forever by Your Side (Willamette Brides, #3)

Baker Book House | Amazon | Goodreads

I want this job.” Constance Browning looked her interviewer straight in the eye.

My copy of this one just arrived in the mail a few days ago so I’m excited to dig into it soon. It’s the concluding novel in the Willamette Brides series 🙂

About the Book:

After years of schooling on the East Coast, Constance Browning returns to Oregon and the reservation where she grew up with her missionary parents. She is accompanied by Thomas Lowell, her best friend and colleague, and together they embark on a project to catalogue the native peoples of Oregon for the Bureau of American Ethnology. But Connie and Tom have another purpose–to prove her parents are not involved in a secret conspiracy to goad the oppressed tribes into a doomed war.

Connie finds life on the reservation much bleaker than she remembered, and she is glad to have Tom by her side. But she also becomes reacquainted with Clint Singleton, the government agent on whom she had a crush as a girl. Now that she’s back, Clint finally seems interested in her, but Connie is no longer sure of her feelings. As tensions on the reservation rise and war looms ever closer, Connie and Tom search for whoever is truly behind the uprising. With danger unfolding amid shocking revelations, Connie will also have a revelation of the heart.

Now it’s your turn!

    Happy Friday! I’m currently reading The Kissing Tree which is a collection of four novellas by four authors. The novella I’m reading now is called Broken Limbs, Mended Hearts by Regina Jennings and the first line is: “Bella Eden had always known when it would happen – the day before her eighteenth birthday.”

  2. Happy Friday! 🙂
    I’m currently reading The Light at Wyndcliff by Sarah E. Ladd. I’m liking it so far.
    “Outside the study window, a gentle rain tapped on the panes.”
    Hope you have a great weekend. 🙂

    Love Tracie Peterson!

    My current book is A Haven For Her Heart by Susan Anne Mason:
    Toronto, Ontario, Canada. November 1939
    Olivia Rosetti turned up the volume on the radio in the empty parlor.

  4. Sounds fascinating! I am currently reading 50 Days of Heaven by Randy Alcorn. I’m only on Chapter Two, so I’ll share the first line from that chapter. Over the years, a number of people have told me, “We shouldn’t think about Heaven. We should just think about Jesus.” Have a wonderful weekend.
