ABOUT THE BOOK
1892—Mae Wilkey’s sweet next-door neighbor, Pauline, is suffering from old age and dementia and desperately needs family to come help her. But Pauline can’t recall having kin remaining. Mae searches through her desk and finds a name—Tom Curtis, who may just be the answer to their prayers.
Tom can’t remember an old aunt named Pauline, but if she thinks he’s a long-lost nephew, he very well may be. After two desperate letters from Mae, he decides to pay a visit. An engagement, a runaway train, and a town of quirky, loveable people make for more of an adventure than Tom is expecting. But it is amazing what can bloom in winter when God is in charge of things.
I've read some great historical novels as of late and this one is no exception. It's a light quick read that will leave you with a smile on your face and all questions answered. The characters are all quite the character and Lori (as usual) makes them seem so lifelike that they really did exist back there in 1892. I love the subtle way that Ms. Copeland has of telling us God is in control, without pushing it too hard. Another great read to add to your winter collection!
