Mountains of Love is the newest novel from the prolific pen of Nice Lakes Romances writer Donna Winters. It additionally represents a brand new departure for Winters, who has beforehand set her novels alongside the Nice Lakes the place she has lived for a few years. A number of years in the past, Winters moved to the Southwest and that has influenced her newest novel. Twenty-three-year-old Cedena Rossier, the ebook’s heroine, is from Fayette, Michigan, the place Winters beforehand set a trilogy, however Cedena journeys to the Chicago World’s Honest in 1893 after which to Kansas Metropolis and Las Vegas, New Mexico.

And Cedena’s journey is sort of the journey. Just like the Ferris wheel Cedena rides on on the World’s Honest, this novel is stuffed with fantastic views of the US on the finish of the nineteenth century in addition to some gasps over the thrill that runs all through its pages.

The story begins when Cedena accompanies her mom, aunt, and uncle to the Chicago World’s Honest. Cedena and her mom have fallen on laborious occasions. Her father and brother have been concerned within the iron business in Fayette, Michigan, till the Jackson Iron Firm pulled out of city. They then took to fishing to help the household, however two years in the past, they have been misplaced in a storm on Lake Michigan. Since then, Cedena and her mom have struggled to make ends meet and Cedena’s Uncle James has needed to ship them cash simply so they may survive. Now Cedena’s aunt and uncle have invited her to attend the World Honest’s in Chicago with them, the place Uncle James has a sales space for Paxton’s Prescribed drugs, his personal firm primarily based in Kansas Metropolis. Working the sales space for him is a younger man named Matthew who instantly takes a liking to Cedena.

Cedena, nonetheless, is extra thinking about seeing the sights on the truthful than being concerned with Matthew. She finds him considerably overbearing, and when she meets good-looking Orin Younger and his sister Alice, who appears to love Matthew, Cedena hopes Matthew will fall for Alice whereas she will get to spend time with Orin.

One of many splendors of this novel is the Chicago World’s Honest. It was the spectacle of the last decade, and Winters takes us on a tour of it, exhibiting us every thing from the camel races to the recent air balloon journey, the Fourth of July fireworks, and the Chinese language Village. We really feel drawn in, seeing all of it via Cedena’s eyes, and solely want we may return in time to see it for ourselves.

However finally, Cedena’s go to to the truthful attracts to an finish and she or he has to make some laborious choices. She realizes there’s nothing in Fayette for her to return to, and she or he can be bored with her mom’s controlling methods. She has additionally met some individuals on the truthful who make her need to stay in Chicago. When she takes her uncle up on his provide to remain and assist him, she comes into fast battle along with her mom, leading to her mom disowning her. Worse, the Melancholy of 1893 is simply starting, and by the point the truthful is over and Cedena returns to Kansas Metropolis along with her aunt and uncle, her uncle’s enterprise is in such decline that Cedena should be taught to fend for herself. Then she has the good thought to have the journey of a lifetime by turning into a Harvey Lady.

To say extra could be to spoil all of the enjoyable, however Cedena’s experiences within the Southwest are something however boring as she meets new and unsavory characters, tries to be self-supporting, and struggles with the emotions of her coronary heart and making the very best choices for her future.

Donna Winters has written many different novels and I’ve learn a lot of them, from Mackinac to her Fayette Trilogy and her newer Saving Mossy Level. After writing so many historic and Christian romances, one would suppose the books would turn out to be formulaic, however that isn’t in any respect the case. Winters writes about actual individuals dealing with real-life struggles in historic settings that make you’re feeling you might be proper there with the characters. I may really feel Cedena’s pleasure on the truthful, her exhaustion after working lengthy shifts as a Harvey Lady, her frustrations coping with tough individuals from members of the family to fellow staff, and in the end, her braveness in making the very best choices for herself. She and her fellow characters will stay with you a very long time.

Anybody who loves historic fiction and romance will discover Mountains of Love an exquisite saga to get misplaced in and need there have been mountains extra of it.
