When she finds the perfect place to hide from one past, another finds her.
Naomi McIntosh is running from her family’s oppressive expectations and the despicable man her father has demanded she marry. Renaming herself to live incognito, she takes a housekeeping job at the Inn at Falls Creek and promises God this false identity will be her last.
When shepherd James Roberts goes home to the Inn at Falls Creek for his sister’s wedding, he doesn’t expect the woman who once broke his heart to be working there. No matter how much he wants to be with Naomi again, he can’t go along with her charade, especially since he is trying to persuade his father to make him the heir.
Though Naomi yearns for a future with James, if she confesses her deception to everyone, her estranged fiancé will find her. And the longer James goes without telling his family the truth about Naomi—and their growing relationship—the further he jeopardizes the inheritance. But just when their relationship looks promising, the inn proves to be a poor hiding place from Naomi’s past.
Meanwhile, in Good Springs…
Connor Bradshaw wrestles with the overseers’ decision to preserve the Land’s pacifist ways. His desire to build a defense system for the Land keeps him up at night, secretly scanning for radio transmissions from the warring outside world. His training to be a village overseer will require him to lay down his weapons, but a voice over the radio waves ignites his worst fears.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this series. I love the uniqueness of it. It reads like a historical yet it is taking place in the future.
Naomi and James’s story is sweet yet I knew things were going to go wrong at the end (of course, all books have to). I enjoyed seeing characters from the past books and how they are doing now. It also took place around Christmas which was perfect to read right now.
The tension of the outside world discovering the Land is always there and makes the reader anxious because we want these characters we have come to love to remain safe and this book ends with some great tension built up.
If you haven’t read this series yet I say what are you waiting for? Give it a try.
