Beschreibung

Ethan and Sophie long to share a future together. But the secrets they’re not sharing could tear them apart.

Sophie Caldwell has returned to Hickory Ridge, Tennessee, after years away. Despite the heartaches of her childhood, Sophie is determined to make a home, and a name, for herself in the growing town. A gifted writer, she plans to resurrect the local newspaper that so enchanted her as a girl.

Ethan Heyward’s idyllic childhood was shattered by a tragedy he has spent years trying to forget. An accomplished businessman and architect, he has built a majestic resort in the mountains above Hickory Ridge, drawing wealthy tourists from all over the country.

When Sophie interviews Ethan for the paper, he is impressed with her intelligence and astounded by her beauty. She’s equally intrigued but fears he will reject her if he learns about her shadowed past. Just as she summons the courage to tell him, Ethan’s own past unexpectedly and violently catches up with him, threatening not only his life but their budding romance.

“Pure Southern delight! Dorothy Love weaves a stirring romance . . . that uplifts and inspires the heart.” —Tamera Alexander, best-selling author of The Inheritance and A Lasting Impression

    Dorothy allows her reader to see the action by her detailed descriptions.

    Although part of a series, I was able to jump into this book without reading any others.

    Although church, faith and God were mentioned throughout the book, I would not consider it "Christian." Faith was more a routine, expected obligation, not a life-changing choice.

    I failed to understand why she struggled to answer the "big question" for 75 pages...her misgivings didn't seem enough. The ending dragged on.

    It was a quick read, with expected outcomes, but good descriptions.

    This book was amazing. I read it in less that 24 hours which is fast for even me. I instantly fell in love with Sophie and Evan. While I was reading the book I hoped that they would end up together because they seemed so perfect for each other. The author does a great job of describing things and also does a great job of keep the reader on the edge of their seats. I didn't put this book down until I was finished with it and I am going to read the other books in the series along with any other books that the the author has written.

    After being taken in by some very kind people, Sophie has spent a long time in Texas. However, she feels the pull to return to her home in the small town of Hickory Ridge. Sophie wants to start up the local paper again. The biggest news is the new resort opening up in the mountain above Hickory Ridge. Sophie decides to interview the supervisor in charge on things at the resort, and he turns out to be a very handsome young man named Ethan. Ethan and Sophie immediately feel drawn to each other, but they are both hiding secrets about their pasts. Ethan and Sophie will have a chance to make it if their pasts don't overrun them.This was a very enjoyable book. I loved Sophie. She was a hardworking woman in an age where she was not entirely accepted. She knew what she wanted to do and was determined to do it. I loved her zeal for reporting. You want her to succeed because she is so determined. Ethan was equally determined to do his job, but I felt like you didn't get to know him quite as well. I think some of this is due to the fact that his secret stays hidden until much closer to the end than Sophie's. Ethan and Sophie had a host of other characters to help them through their tale, and they had equally interesting lives. I especially liked the storyline involving building an infirmary.There were some very important topics discussed in this book. One of the most important was the idea of equality. This was touched upon in a couple ways. One was racial equality. As Sophie deal with her past, she must deal with the poor way she has been treated because of her suspected bloodline. Ethan has to deal with something similar but in a very different way. Another thing touched on was the ability we have to take care of our fellow men. There were many poor who were not able to get adequate medical care, and the building of an infirmary was meant to help with that. So many people pitched in to make this happen out of love of others. Overall this was a very enjoyable book that combined history and romance into a fun package.Galley provided for review.

    This is the third and final book in this series, I have read them all and enjoyed! We have met Sophie before, and love that now we have her story. We are reunited with some of the friends we had come to love, and meet some new and many endearing ones.Sophie Robillard Caldwell is now all grown up and is facing her fears. Having grown up in Hickory Ridge, TN in their orphanage, she wants to now reopen the local newspaper. Her life in this town was not a very happy one, but she is holding her head high, and has finished her educations.Ethan Heyward has been hired to build and oversee Blue Smoke Resort. He has done a splendid job, and it has been acclaimed. When Sophie appears for an interview...sparks fly. Yes Ethan is taken with Sophie, but they are both fighting their past demons, and we read along hoping that each will make the right decisions.Loved the view into 1880's living, and rebuilding after the Civil War. Don't miss this conclusion to this sweet series.I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.

    Sophie Caldwell is a child of the orphanage of Hickory Ridge and while she was taken away from the taunts and bullying by a wonderful, loving set of adoptive parents she feels compelled to come back to town. A new luxury resort is being built and she has purchased the old town newspaper and plans to revise it. This is the third and last book in the Hickory Ridge series and many of the characters will be familiar to readers of the first two books. I did not read them but I did not feel as I was at a loss.Sophie meets Ethan Heyward when she interviews him for an article in the paper. For him it's love at first site but Sophie is embarrassed about her lack of family - she does not know that Ethan has painful secrets in his past as well.The story is a Christmas treat. The relationship between Sophie and Ethan is a classic will she/won't she and the reader doesn't know until the very end. Sophie is a very complex and forward thinking woman for her time and Ms. Love gives her a perfect foil in Ethan - a man who is willing to look past social mores and believe in love. I found myself smiling as I read the passages where these two appeared. Sophie does finally learn her history and the hard lesson in life that we don't always get what we want but we can make what we have the best it can be.A very inspirational and satisfying holiday read.
