this was a sequel 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 down Hendrick Simmons proposal and he thought she thought He was not good enough for her.
this story deals in suspense with a child that was being cared for by Mariah's brother and wife, fast becoming a part of the family. Mariah, through her job learns that the
I won this book through Goodreads First Reads, Thank You! I actually was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the relationship and the tension between the two main characters. I enjoyed the mystery part of trying to figure out about Frank Gillard. Was he good, bad and what where his motives? I loved trying to figure it out. It seemed like the majority of the story was based upon trying to figure this out about Frank Gillard and then it seemed a little rushed at the end.

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 especially liked that Hendrick he ...more
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 required something far more 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 unique and relevant to the story. Add in the 1920s road trip setting, along with

Mariah Meeks, a dedicated compassionate woman, works for the Orphaned Children’s Society. With no family or children of her own, she’s devoted all her passion and energy into children’s causes. One little boy in particular has a place in Mariah’s heart —and in her brother’s home. But news has come that the adoption may not take place, and the little boy very well may soon be removed from the family he’s comes to love and returned to a father who abandoned him years before. Mariah’s not about to ...more

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. ...more
Ok. Not the worst book but not the best. I liked the road trip the two characters went on with the male leads sister but I didnt quite 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 studies though.

2.5 stars. I expected a road trip story and it turned out to be more of a melodrama, with the evil bad guy trying to cheat the noble young girl. :)
